WATCH: Muslim doctor saves stranger’s life on a Brisbane street
BRISBANE: A Muslim doctor was spotted in a CCTV footage from Brisbane, saving a life of a contracted worker who collapsed on the street when his heart suddenly stopped.
The doctor was enrolling his children at the Islamic College of Brisbane when he ran over to the stranger and began performing CPR.
Family of the contractor are crediting his survival to the doctor who resuscitated him on the footpath until ambulance arrived.
The man is still recovering in hospital after the incident last week.
‘For those who are blaming Islam for #Manchester, that act was against Islam. This act by a Muslim doctor in #Brisbane is Islam and most Muslims live by this every day of their lives,’ Mr Kadri wrote on Facebook alongside the video.
Explaining why he was moved to share the footage, he told Daily Mail Australia: ‘Mainly because it was an incident of human generosity and secondly because the doctor or the patient didn’t care or think about each other’s faith or ethnicity.’
‘Some people blame Islam for terrorism but in fact Islam like other great faiths encourages charity and kindness. Almost all Muslims live by it and those who commit terrorism in the name of any religion are in fact acting against the teaching of faiths,’ Mr Kadri said.
