Does this happen in any profession, while doing normal work, a female staff is assaulted by mobs and no action is taken by a civilized society and a responsible government.
Another shameful incidence in Hyderabad, where women doctors were beaten by mobs should have shaken the civilized society or any responsible administration and government. But in such chaotic environment, it does not make a news of importance to people, who matter and are responsible for controlling such uncivilized actions.
It is not just women rights commission, the silence of women activists, socialites etc, who cry hoarse for women rights, is perplexing. These organizations and individuals have been silent all along since the women being assaulted are “doctors”. No dharna, no protest or statement of condemn. Is that the situation that doctors are not having rights of normal human beings.
Nearly 250 junior doctors and house surgeons have been boycotting their duties except for emergency services since Sunday night, demanding security for them and action against those involved in the attack. The strike by medicos hit services at OGH, one of the oldest hospitals in the country and the biggest government-run facility in Telangana.
Four attendants of a woman patient, who died during the treatment, assaulted two female junior doctors and a duty doctor on Sunday night, when The 70-year-old patient, who was in critical condition, died at Intensive Care Unit. Alleging that she died due to negligence by doctors, four of her relatives barged into the ICU and attacked them. It said this was the fourth incident at OGH in one month.
Lot of people including our respected leaders and some great actors talk in media about this slogan and pretend to do a lot about saving and educating our daughters. While on the other hand, those fathers who made their daughter a doctor and truly did the society proud are anguished. Their daughters have been assaulted by mobs just because they were doctors. This has bared the hypocrisy prevailing in our society .Why none of the politicians or actors, both male and female, have not taken a stand for this cause openly? My humble request to them is to do more than mere sloganeering and tokenism, just show that you really mean, what you say.
