Srinagar, Jul 10: Government of India has asked the Jammu and Kashmir government to initiate departmental action against IAS topper Shah Faesal for “violating” the All India Services (conduct rules) through a tweet.

In an order, the General Administration Department (GAD) said Shah Faesal, who is currently on study leave outside India, has “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.”

Sharing the order on his Twitter, defiant Shah Faesal called for the need to change the service rules.

“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,” he tweeted.
