PIMS suspends doctor over posting video of Fazl being treated
Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam – Fazl (JUI-F) Emir was undergoing treatment at PIMS after complaining of stomach related issues. He was kept under observation and underwent medical examinations before being discharged from the hospital.
The footage shows the JUI-F chief being taken care by a female doctor as he is lying on a hospital bed. The video has gone viral on social media.
Fazl’s critics turned their guns towards the clerics over receiving treatment from a female doctor. His supporters, on the other hand, have expressed their dismay over the actions of the doctor.
The hospital management suspended the doctor over his behavior after receiving complaints from Fazl’s family and followers. A committee has also been formed to probe the matter.
PIMS also issued an unconditional apology to the JUI-F chief in its notification.
The hospital stated, “To this effect, the management of PIMS strongly condemns the act and tenders unconditional sincere apology to the worthy patient, his family and followers.”
