He has chosen to play in the hands of forces inimical to India, Sethi claimed.
Faesal, who quit the Indian Administrative Services recently, had told reporters the circumstances in Jammu and Kashmir and in the rest of the country made him realise that this was the time to speak up.
"By the resignation, I am putting across a small act of defiance to remind the central government of its responsibilities towards the people of J&K...to protest the lack of political initiative to assuage the hurt feelings of people of Kashmir," Faesal, who had topped the civil services exam in 2010, told reporters.
He said he would not join any mainstream political party "as of now" but may contest the upcoming parliamentary election.
The state BJP spokesperson responded to his remarks, saying, "It is this great country which gives opportunities to ungrateful persons like Shah Faesal to top prestigious civil services, because here merit is counted rather than belief in religion."
"Anybody has right to enter politics but politics which has foundation on deceit and misinformation will never pay," Sethi added.
