Centre seeks report from J-K govt on IAS officer Shah Faesal's 'rapistan' tweet

Thursday, July 12, 2018

New Delhi: The Centre has sought a report from Jammu and Kashmir government on IAS officer Shah Faesal's "rapistan" tweet, official sources said.

The state government has been asked by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) to share details of the case based on which future course of the action in the matter will be decided, they said.

Faesal, a 2010-batch IAS officer currently pursuing a mid-career masters programme in the US, is facing disciplinary proceedings over his controversial tweet.

In a notice to Faesal, the General Administration Department of Jammu and Kashmir, which is under the Governor's rule, said, "You have allegedly failed to maintain absolute honesty and integrity in the discharge of official duty and thus acted in a manner unbecoming of a public servant."

Faesal had earlier tweeted, "Population +patriarchy +illiteracy +alcohol +porn +technology +anarchy = rapistan(sic)".

The IAS officer, however, defended the post saying he had not criticised government policy. "If rape is part of government policy, then I plead guilty for criticism of the government policy," he tweeted. Faesal had earlier made headlines when he topped the civil services exam.
