Even in worst conflict of history, the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians, the Zionist and Muslim- doctors remained loyal to the Hippocratic oath when they treated patients from their enemy camps. Dr. Hassan Hathout, a Muslim physician, was one such hero who, in 1948, treated an Israeli military official who was commanding troops to uproot and annihilate Palestinians. In 2018, the UN honored Israeli Drs. Sion Houri, Lior Sasson, and Akiva Tamir, with the UN Population Award for saving young Palestinian lives – especially in war-torn and developing lands.
Article 13 of the third Geneva Convention states that Prisoners Of Wars (POWs) must receive humane treatment. Any act or omission by the country, under whose captivity, the POW is in, which leads to death or seriously endangers the health of a prisoner is prohibited. The convention requires the medical staff to treat prisoners properly, ensuring their safety.
However, Indian doctors, owing to their allegiance to the Hindu fascist organization, the Rashtriya Swayam Sewak Sangh (RSS), think and act differently, especially when their patients happen to be from the Muslim community.
Physicians and other medical staff, owing allegiance to the fascist group, number thousands in the US, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East. Can their non-Hindu patients trust them and feel safe?
A video showing the principle of the government Ganesh Shankar Vidhyarthi Medical College college ranting against Islam and Muslims would scare any non-Hindu anywhere. She is not alone in her hatred of Islam and Muslims; thousands think and probably act like her in India as well all over the world.
There are reports from Indian states such as Telangana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh, where Muslim patients complained of mistreatment by Hindu physicians. In one such instance in Rajasthan, a gynecologist refused to admit an expecting mother in the hospital because she was a Muslim. In Gujarat, the family of a deceased patient complained that doctors refused to treat him and left him to die on the floor. In Delhi, doctors left a Muslim diabetic patient to die without food and medicine for days.
What was said by the top UP doctor on camera shows the real intent of the RSS-influenced medical staff in India and elsewhere as far as Islam is concerned? Reacting to Covid-19 patients in the publicly funded hospital, she spits hatred against Muslims. Aarti Lalchandani described them as terrorists and held them responsible for spreading the virus among Hindus. She even suggested that hospitals should not treat them. She went to the extent of saying that that the forest was the best quarantine place and injection the best medicine for Muslims. She was referring to Muslim patients who had attended the Tableeghi Jamat gatherings in Delhi in March.
In a five-minute video that went viral, she says: “We are giving VIP treatment to terrorists, so many doctors are in quarantine, because of them. The Chief Minister (Yogi Adityanath) is following a policy of appeasement by admitting these people to the hospital. They deserve jail.” The woman further says: “Send them to jungles, throw them in dungeons. Because of these 30 crores (Muslim population in India), 100 crores are suffering. There is a financial emergency because of them.”
She is expressing a line of thinking promoted by the Hindu fascist organizations, including the ruling BJP and its ideological head, the RSS.
Thousands of medical staff working in the US, Europe, and the Middle east has attended RSS training camps. They provide financial support to the organization and transfer millions in foreign currency exchange to the organization annually. They always attend the RSS paramilitary training camps and promote hatred against Muslims and Christians who consider the arch-enemy of Hindu upper castes.
One cannot rule out the possibility of their misdiagnosis or mistreatment of Muslims or Christian ptients. Only a thorough investigation of the medical practice of such physicians and other medical staff can reveal the truth.
The Hippocratic Oath clearly says that “I will apply dietetic measures for the sick’s benefit according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice”.
It states: “I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I suggest this effect. Similarly, I will not give a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness, I will guard my life and my art. Whatever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, mischief, and sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves.
If I fulfill this oath and do not violate it, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and art, being honored with fame among all men for all time to come; if I transgress it and swear falsely, may the opposite of all this be my lot.”
This original oath went through a revision in 1964, but the essence remained the same. The RSS-influenced physicians and other medical staff violate this oath through their actions and statements. Their anti-Islam and anti-Christianity statements are well-documented. They pose a threat to civil society not only in India but wherever they are.
The medical community must investigate these hidden agents of fascism working in public and private hospitals. They are a danger to Muslim and Christian societies all over the world.
