Human rights of doctor community have been grossly violated by physical assaults. It is painful to see that the authorities that are supposed to take action have maintained a silence all these years about this issue.
Even courts who have vehemently raised concerns about cruelty against dogs have shown no concern about issue of cruelty against docs (doctors).
Despite reports of assault against female doctors, commission for rights of women have maintained an inexplicable silence till now.
What is role of human rights commission, if rights of a hard working community like doctors are violated and what is it supposed to do? I really fail to understand what else will it take to shake them out of their stupor ?
If the courts, the commission for women’s rights, and the human rights commission are maintaining silence, is it because the rights of doctors were never clearly defined and outlined. The duties of a doctor have always been enumerated but the rights have never been discussed. Isn’t it time that we discuss this important question “What are the rights of a doctor?”
