Jammu &Kashmir’s first UPSC topper Shah Faesal is currently facing disciplinary action for his sarcastic tweet against rape-culture in south asia. Shah Faesal on Tuesday tweeted :  “Patriarchy + Population + Illiteracy + Alcohol + Porn + Technology + Anarchy = Rapistan!” The 2010 batch Indian Administrative Service officer had drawn sharp criticism from people after which he had claimed that his remark was not about India.

Shah on Tuesday posted the letter sent by the department . He wrote: “Love letter from my boss for my sarcastic tweet against rape-culture in South Asia. The Irony here is that service rules with a colonial spirit are invoked in a democratic India to stifle the freedom of conscience. I’m sharing this to underscore the need for a rule change.”

The government said:  “you have allegedly failed to maintain absolute honesty and integrity in discharge of your official duty and thus acted in a manner unbecoming of a public servant.”

The letter said:

“the Department of Personnel & Training, Government of India has forwarded to this department a copy of communication, along with its enclosures, in which several references have been made by you in your twitter account, in which contents are prima-face in contravention of the extant provisions of All India Services (Conduct Rules), 1968/All India Services (Discipline and Appeal) Rules, 1969. Screen-shots of the posts made by you in your twitter account are enclosed.”

The letter adds: “the Department of Personnel & Training, Government of India has requested the State Government to initiate action against you under provisions of All India (Discipline & Appeal) Rules, 1969, and to intimate the action taken to the Department of Personnel & Training, Government of India.”

Defending Faizal, former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah questioned how a sarcastic tweet could be labelled as dishonest. “Looks like DOPT is determined to chase @shahfaesal out of the civil services. The last line of this page is shocking & unacceptable where they question Faesal’s “integrity & honesty”. How is a sarcastic tweet dishonest? How does it make him corrupt?,” he tweeted.
