Jammu and Kashmir
Faisal litigated on a range of issues, with particular focus on the Criminal Justice Initiative in Srinagar. Working on cases within this initiative, he argued against invoking the Public Safety Act against protesting minors, successfully leading to orders discharging them from being prosecuted under the Act. In another matter, where a law student survived an acid attack but lost vision in both eyes, Faisal obtained a compensation of Rs 1.8 million. In a Land Rights Initiative matter argued by Faisal, the Court directed for compensation and rehabilitation of villagers whose lands had been illegally occupied by the armed forces.
