Srinagar, February 16 (KNO) : Resident Doctor Association (RDA) SKIMS has urged Director of the Institute to suspend a doctor over his Facebook post, saying that ‘Kashmir doesn’t need a healing touch but a killing touch’.
The doctor has been identified as Dr. Amit Sharma, DM scholar cardiology at Soura institute. The complaint against the doctor has been filed by Resident doctor association and has urged the authorities to put the said doctor on immediate suspension.
“We condemn such acts and demand legal action as per law against the same at the earliest,” the complaint in possession of KNO reads. The doctors association has demanded suspension of Sharma with immediate effect as ‘he can be a threat to patients he may be attending to’.
“The post itself speaks of his hatred and communalism against Kashmiris. How such a person could be entrusted to treat the sick and needy people of Kashmir,” Doctors at the Soura Medical institute said. Doctor association Kashmir has condemned the act and has said that the doctor should work without any communal understanding.
“The doctor should treat his patients without any feeling of religious or any other discrimination. These types of things are not acceptable to a profession so sensitive,” Dr Suhail Naikoo of DAK told KNO, while demanding strict action.
“Doctor has to work under Hippocratic Oath and has to serve humanity irrespective of religion, region, caste, creed or social economic status. Such post from a DM scholar is highly condemnable and unacceptable,” Naikoo said. (KNO)
