Like Mehbooba Mufti & Omar Abdullah, India is now trying to make a martyr of Shah Faesal who until January of this year was an officer in the Indian Administrative Service in Kashmir–in other words, a collaborator. He was just detained at the Delhi airport trying to fly out & sent back to Srinagar where he was detained on arrival under the Public Safety Act (PSA), a draconian & undemocratic law allowing administrative detention up to two years without charge or trial.

Kashmiri Samreen Mushtaq tweeted: “Indian State be like, “you have signed enough PSAs on our orders to book Kashmiris. Now let us sign one for you.”

“If anything, this phase should show the pro India client regimes/collaborators in #Kashmir how dispensable they are for the Indian State.”
