Srinagar: Congress President Tuesday wrote a letter to Kashmiri IAS officer, Shah Faesal and expressed solidarity with him.

Rahul in his letter praised Faesal for “courageously highlighting the issues that plague India”.

“It is extremely troubling that the Government has singled you (Faesal) out for voicing opinion, which exhibits an insecurity that is unbecoming of any government,” Rahul wrote to Faesal.

Rahul’s letter comes almost a week after the government of India (GoI) ordered action against 35-year-old Jammu and Kashmir bureaucrat for his tweets on 11 July.

Faesal posted a tweet saying, “Population +patriarchy +illiteracy +alcohol +porn +technology +anarchy = rapistan” which created controversy.
