There is a shocking conspiracy theory doing the rounds. This might shock you but the possibility of it being true is very much there. Narendra Modi and Amit Shah are playing double games through two unlikely characters with the aim of ending the careers of the Mufti and Abdullah political dynasties in Kashmir.
And what the PM-HM duo are doing is this: they are promoting former IAS officer Shah Faesal and JNU student leader Shehla Rashid as youth icons for Kashmiris quite deliberately! But aren't Shah and Shehla totally against the BJP and the Modi regime? Yes, they are. But their growth will be used by BJP to eventually sideline political dynasties in Kashmir.
Rahul Pandita, a well-known journalist who often writes on Kashmir, says, "In next few months, you will see the Centre propping up the likes of Shah Faesal and other candidates whose names will come as a big surprise to Modi supporters. These include some currently tweeting vociferously against New Delhi."
