PMA deplores murder of yet another doctor


KARACHI: The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) Central and Karachi chapters on Friday strongly condemned the brutal murder of Dr Hassan Ali in Hussainabad area of Karachi on Thursday. An emergency meeting of PMA Centre and Karachi was held at PMA House Karachi which was presided over by Immediate Past President Prof S Tipu Sultan. The meeting was also attended by Dr Mirza Ali Azhar, Dr SM Qaisar Sajjad, Prof M Idrees Adhi, Dr Serajuddaula, Dr Shoaib Sobani, Dr Qazi Wasiq, Dr Ahmed Bhemani, Dr Hamid Manzoor, Dr Khalil Mukkadam, Dr Aziz Khan Tank, Dr Naseer Baloch, Dr Usman Ghani, Dr Najam Feroz Mehmoodi, Dr Shaukat Malik, Dr Jai Pal, Dr Nawaz Mallah, Dr Nisar Ali Shah, Dr Shahid Qureshi and others.  PMA said it seemed that the Sindh government was totally not feeling its responsibility to provide safety and security to the doctors. The Law enforcing agencies have miserably failed to curb these crimes. Unfortunately, the judiciary is also not taking any serious notice of the situation. PMA demanded of the government to provide security to all doctors, otherwise a country-wide protest may be initiated which will result in increasing the sufferings of poor patients, which PMA as a patient friendly organization does not approve. PMA demanded of the Federal Interior Minister, Chief Minister of Sindh, Chief Secretary, IG Police and all other stateholder institutions to maintain the law and order and take an urgent notice. PMA also requested Chief Justice of Pakistan to take suo motu action in this regard.
