    I would like to express my heart felt condolence with Mr Gul Hammad Farooqui on the sad demise of his dear son Muhammad Farhan. It is a matter of great concern that the Doctors have totally forgotten the importance of their noble profession due to emerging selfishness and personal interest. The Y.D.A. has particularly played a vital role to disrupt the entire system of health units and hospitals in the country. The Y.D.A has trotted down the values of humanitarianism.
    In my opinion, the government should seriously consider to declare the Doctors service as”Emergency Service” and preferably arrange to ban the Y.D.A. in the larger interest of the people. The Doctors have absolutely lost the respect of the people. It is further suggested that the FIR against the concerned responsible Doctors be registered to proceed against under criminal code.

    Dear Sir, thank you for publishing this story. Actually I am crusading against these cruel doctors who neglect poor patients in hospitals. I appeal to all general public to help and support me in this good work to teach a lesson to these doctors who have become money earning machines and never think about lives and health of poor patients.
