Launching a scathing attack on PDP-BJP government in the state over sacking of a doctor over his Facebook post, opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Monday said “ministers can protest to defend rape and murder accused but a doctor can’t point out the truth”.Omar’s reaction came in wake of government order in which a doctor Amit Kumar, who was working as an anesthesiologist at the Government Medical College Jammu, was sacked for “criticising” the government on Facebook.Taking to social networking website, Twitter, Omar wrote: “Ministers can protest to defend rape/murder accused but a doctor can’t point out the truth. @MehboobaMufti dictatorial Govt in J&K - J&K doctor faces action for ‘correcting’ minister on Facebook”.In another tweet, Omar said: “All the doctor did was point out that the lift the health minister claimed to have inaugurated was actually an old lift & for that he was removed from his post of Registrar”.An order under SRO 525, barring a government employee from posting on social media websites anything “prejudicial to the government”, was issued last December.
