As the situation in Kashmir continues to deteriorate, one Facebook post has sparked a one-liner contest about Indian rule in the Valley.

Shah Faesal, who is the first Kashmiri to top the Indian Administrative Service examination, has been consistently posting on his social media account about life in Kashmir. The latest in the thread is a one-liner describing what India is to Kashmiris.

Why Indians are sharing this heartbreaking image of a classifieds page in Kashmir

The post has been widely shared and many have commented on it posting their take on the situation.

QUIZ: How well do you know Kashmir?

However, some disagreed with Faesal’s opinion.

    @LOL: for people like you everyone should either hate or ‘slave’ someone, black or white. Nothing dignified or human like, with conversation without guns or bullets. Also why the rhetoric of 1947 from J & K reduced to Kashmir now and if Pakistan is worried about only the muslims of Kashmir without the injustice done to the minorities (by the majority), I too not worried about the so called atrocities of the Indian army.Recommend

    You better not worry about the atrocities and barbaric killings by Indian forces. You know why? You need to be a human being first. Any way glad you guys are exposing well with just a one liner. It even don’t need more than a line to prove you guys. Recommend

    @Javeria Shaikh: Better show your Humane face to people in POK, Baluchistan & Religious Minorities of Pakistan. Then preach others. India is capable to take care of its land and people, please take care of your own country and ensure no more QANDEEL happenings!Recommend
