25 November, 2012

QUETTA: The Balochistan government decided to suspend 80 protesting doctors, withhold their salaries and ban their foreign tours, on Saturday.

Addressing a news conference, Health Secretary Asmatullah Kakar said an investigation would also be carried into unregistered hospitals. He said action would also be taken against those who were working in private hospitals without NOCs. He said foreign tours of doctors would also be investigated and all the doctors nominated in an FIR would face a ban on their foreign tours. He added the degrees of consultants and professors would also be screened. He also said new doctors would be appointed in place of the suspended doctors.

Doctors in Balochistan went on a strike after their colleague, Dr Saeed Khan, was abducted on October 16 and has not been found yet.

What a shamefull act of government of balochistan

Instead of capturing the criminals, kidnapers and killers the governemnt of balochistan has arrested and tortured doctors of balochistan who are protesting against the kidnaping of thier fellow doctors.
More than 30 doctors are killed and 20 kidnaped for ransom in the balochistan province of pakistan for the past 4 years.
Balochistan is the part of the country where even judges are kidnaped for ransom and released after paying ransom money.
Brother of chief minister of balochistan is acused of kidnaping doctors by the members of provincial assembly sadiq umrani and yar muhammad rind. Pakistan medical association (PMA) has nominated the kidnapers but police is not taking action against them as the kidnapers are very dear to the government police and other authorities.

Shame for civil society

This mean Balochistan government is supporting kidnapers against doctors. Balochistan crimnals government started pressurizing doctor to keep quit and they are not taking any action against kidnapers while Chief Justice told in his last statement that "everyone knows who are the kidnapers in balochistan kidnapes". I believe Chief Justice has enough evidences againt Balochistan crimes. I asked Chief Justice what stops him to disclose the kidnappers name and bring them for justice. We have to distinguish between politics and crime. What is happening in Balochistan is crime not polics. If Chief Justice is unable to disclose their name even he has evidendes then I will say that the Chief Justice is also a supporter/member of the same crimnal team.

Crimnals never get shame

Today read CM statement thearthening doctors instead taking action against kidnappers. That negative attitude shows that he is in faver of kidnappers. This matches exactly with Chief Justice statement "everyone knows who is behind crimes in Quetta".
