In what may look like a bizarre case, a senior lady doctor at one Mukta Prasad dispensary in Bikaner, Rajasthan, has been advising her patients to follow Islam in order to cure themselves of diseases.
Reports suggest that the lady doctor, Jameema Hayat, has been warned repeatedly by Chief medical and health officer (CMHO) Dr Devendra Choudhary for her ‘religious approach’ while on duty.
After failing to change her behaviour despite getting many complaints, the CMHO has issued her a fresh notice.
Choudhary, who coincidentally is a batch mate of Hayat, said, there have been complaints about her for a long period of time. “We also warned her several times and issued notices to her but she refuses to listen to anybody,” he said.
The issue was so grave that a person filed a complaint on the portal of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). After receiving the complaint, the PMO has ordered a probe into this matter.
According to Choudhary, an inquiry has been initiated in this matter and will conclude soon.
Reports say, one Manish Singhal who came to treat his eight-year-old daughter, got shock of his life when Hayat advised him to practice Islam instead of getting medical treatment.
She explained to him how following Islam can save his family from all troubles.
Hayat has also been transferred frequently because of her religious practices while on duty.
