Srinagar, May 19 : President Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) Dr Nisar ul Hassan today in a statement said that police is depriving youth from Medicare services by not allowing them to enter hospitals. The injured youth prefer to stay away from hospitals because of fear of getting arrested as police in civil dresses are waiting for them inside hospitals. Even if some youth manage to enter hospitals, they do not disclose their identity or cause of injury because of fear psychosis of police, a statement reads.
According to this statement, the DAL said: While depriving youth from hearlthcare is worst form of human rights abuse. This is unacceptable and intolerable to us as health care personals as it is unethical to deprive anyone from health care. Police inside hospitals enter operation theatres with shoes on looking for injured youth. Doctors are harassed and threatened if they do not inform police about injured youth.
Dr Hassan said, Doctors are in a state of constant fear because of police presence in hospitals which comes in the way of efficient patient care. Police has to realize that India is using them against their own brothers. They should strike the doors of their conscience and acknowledge that they are part of the oppressed nation to which they have an obligation. He added: Police should refrain from such antihuman acts and disobey their masters for killing youth as they are our real heroes. If Panchs are asked to resign, then we have every reason to tell Kashmiris in police to resign as they are being used for killing our youth.
