Rajasthan Doctors WhatsApp Chat

Mumbai: In yet another shocking incident exposing communal polarisation in India, a WhatsApp chat purportedly between the doctors of a private hospital in Rajasthan has been leaked on the social media weherein they can be heard vowing not to treat Coronavirus positive Muslim patients.

Kal se me muslim ptnt ka x-ray ni krunga. Yah meri sapat hai (From tomorrow onwards, I won’t do the X-rays of Muslim patients. This is my promise),” reads one of the messages in the alleged chat which took place between the members of a WhatsApp group titled ‘BARDIA RISE’, according to The Indian Express.

Muslim ptnt ko dekhna hi band krwa do (Stop attending to Muslim patients)", the same individual writes in another message.

Agar Hindu positive hote n, Muslim dr hota to hinduo ko kbhi ni Dekhte. Me ni dekhungi Muslim opd. Bol dena madam h he ni yaha (If Hindus were positive and had there been a Muslim doctor, then Hindus would have never been attended to. I will not attend to Muslim OPD. Tell them madam is not here),” reads another message in the alleged chat.

Another message reads that only Muslims have been found positive in Sardarshahar so it will be best not to attend to Muslim patients and send them to another doctor who is a Muslim.

The alleged chat between the Rajasthan doctors has been leaked days after Dr Aarti Lalchandani, in a viral video is heard calling the members of Tablighi Jamaat who became victim of Coronavirus as "terrorists".

"We should not say this, but they are terrorists. And we are providing them VIP treatment, providing them food... exhausting our resources on them," she allegedly said in the video clip, adding that the hospital was "wasting" PPE kits on the members of the Tablighi Jamaat.

Meanwhile, Dr Sunil Choudhary, who runs the Srichand Baradiya Rog Nidan Kendra in Sardarshahar and whose staff purportedly wrote the messages, apologised through a Facebook post, saying the hospital staff didn’t have any intention to hurt any religious group.

Sardarshahar Police Station Sub-Inspector Ramesh Pannu said a probe is on to investigate the matter.
