PBT Does Not Support Attacks On Doctors But Who Is Responsible? Detail Analysis By PBT President

Indian Medical Association (MCI) and other influential doctor-lobbies are making frequent agitations against attacks on doctors or vandalism of hospitals by irate friends and family members of a victim of “medical negligence”. PBT never supports physical attacks on doctors/hospitals because two wrongs cannot make a right. But have the IMA leaders and members of the medical community in India ever attempted to understand the real or underlying cause of mob attacks on doctors? Who is actually responsible for the present condition of Indian healthcare? In a thought provoking analytical discussion about the glaring problem of attacks on doctors/hospitals, PBT president talks about the underlying reasons for attacks by the hapless victims of medical negligence (read the Hindustan Times article below).

    Completely agree with the view that if mob lynching incidents on Doctor’s have to be reduced, then MCI need to act on cases of Medical corruption/negligence and ensure faith in the system.
    Currently MCI I believe, is just a system to protect corrupt Doctor’s and like said it itself is a den of corruption.
    If this continues I believe the incidents of mob lynching shall continue against corrupt Doctor’s and maybe somewhere I believe a Doctor who is taking lives of numerous hapless patients deserves this treatment.

    My family is also a victim of medical negligence. I’ve started the petition “Medical Council of India, Lilavati Hospital: Cancel License, expel Corrupt Nephrologist Hemant Mehta, Prashant Rajput who killed my Mom” and need your help to get it off the ground.

    Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now. Here’s the link:

    It is unfortunate that an act which is patently a crime , should be supported and thus instigated by justifying it. There may be corruption in police and judiciary but it does not mean that in any particular instance a person assuming an aggravation should assault on any official. Everybody must conform to law of land, and anyone trying to suggest otherwise indirectly is only being disruptive to the fabric of society. It is just like blaming victim of molestation for the type of clothes she is wearing. The cause of the crime must be located in the criminal and not in the victim. The bias should not make one blind to the basic sense of fairness.
