Doctors Call For Day Long Strike

SRINAGAR: Demanding immediate arrest of health minister Shabir Khan and inquiry by a judicial commission, Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) called for suspension of routine work at Kashmir hospitals on Saturday. 

“Shabir should be hanged so that our daughters feel safe and people repose faith and trust in sacrosanct institutions” DAK said in a statement. 

DAK has decided to suspend routine work at Kashmir hospitals tomorrow (Saturday Feb 08), and protest against this ghastly act. 

“We appeal nation to come out in support of DAK to protest against this unforgivable brute act.”

“We are in a state of shock because of this beastly act. People have lost faith and trust in sacred institutions as the highest seat of a sacrosanct institution is a molester,”  DAK statement said. 

Stating that the lady doctor was forced to see the minister at his office chamber by the “nymphomaniac” minister the statement said, “Our sisters and daughters are not safe as they are day in and out molested and raped by politicians, bureaucrats and security personals. We can’t be silent spectators when the chastity of our daughters is at stake. We will sacrifice our lives to safeguard the dignity and honor of our women.”

DAK described the resignation by health minister as an eye wash adding that earlier such incidents have shown that government has given plump postings to officials involved in sex scandals and rape on innocent women of Kashmir. 

“We have examples of Kunanposhpora mass rape, Shopian double rape and murder and infamous poltico-beureucratic sex scandal where perpetrators were exonerated by enquires.”

DAK said:”“Lady Doctors do not want to go for their duties as they feel unsafe after this dastardly act. I received phone calls from parents of lady doctors that they are reluctant to send them to hospitals because of insecurity.”
