Bad Medicine II: The Escalating Problem of Third World Doctors

For some time now I’ve been receiving requests to produce a sequel to a September 2017 piece on the disastrous consequences of the mass importation of doctors from the Third World to Britain. Until recently I resisted the temptation to do so because I felt the original article was definitive in outlining the major thematic issues: Third World doctors are responsible for at least 80% of malpractice cases at U.K. Medical Tribunals; Third World doctors are significantly more likely than native British doctors to engage in the sexual abuse of their patients; and, finally, the medical establishment seems to be complicit in both the covering up of these crimes, mainly via the imposition of extraordinarily lenient sanctions. A number of recent stories, however, from the United States and Australia as well as the U.K., have proven sufficiently unsettling and infuriating that further coverage and discussion of this horrific epidemic is necessary.

One thing that has become very clear in recent months is that the U.K. medical establishment is utterly beholden to multicultural dogma on “racism,” as well as a Soviet-like atmosphere of fear, spying, and denunciation. Take, for example, the case of Peter Duffy, a surgeon, consultant urologist, and one-time “Doctor of the Year” at England’s Royal Lancaster Infirmary. In 2005, this exceptional physician made the mistake of stating that “a doctor of Indian descent had missed an operation on a patient with suspected gangrene because he was out playing golf. He also said two other colleagues of Asian heritage were involved in possible overtime fraud.” Rather than leading to an investigation of these issues of malpractice, Duffy reports:

after flagging these concerns, he was subjected to “malicious, toxic and utterly false” allegations over the period of a decade, culminating in accusations made to the police that he was racist. In particular, tribunal documents showed that four anonymous letters were sent to the General Medical Council (GMC), Duffy’s professional regulator, between 2012 and 2014. Employment Judge Slater said that, from the contents of the letters, they appeared to written by someone within Duffy’s department and “alleged matters which, if true, may have called into question [his] fitness to practice.” [Emphasis added]

Under scrutiny and suspected of having “racist” tendencies, in 2015 Duffy transferred to another hospital. It was at this hospital that Duffy was voted Doctor of the Year by patients and colleagues. A lingering cloud of suspicion appears to have lingered over him, however, and he resigned in July 2016 after he claiming he was still unable to shake off insinuations relating to his issues with the three foreign doctors. After resigning, he was awarded £102,000 in compensation by an employment tribunal that judged he had been unfairly treated.

Operating in tandem with a culture of gagging and secret denunciations of “racists” is a flagrant disregard on the part of medical authorities for the seriousness of criminal misconduct by Third World doctors. In March it was reported that “1 in 6 doctors convicted of sex offences are still able to practice medicine,” and last year it emerged that more than 1,000 doctors in the U.K. have criminal convictions for offences including possession of child pornography, cruelty to children, soliciting prostitution, and the theft of drugs. The proliferation of criminal elements and foreign ethnic physicians in the British health service has led to a situation where recourse is no longer required to the records of the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service. There are almost daily headlines involving malpractice and sexual abuse among foreign doctors, though these pieces are always straining to treat the case on an individual basis. The aim of the following is to collate some of the most pertinent cases from the last 11 months in order to demonstrate a horrific pattern that is getting worse, not only in Britain but throughout the West. As White populations age and we divert more and more money away from training our own youth, we will become more and more reliant on immigrant doctors with low aptitude, poor training, and brutal sensibilities. This is a terrifying prospect.

I. Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse and misconduct remains the foremost cause for legal proceedings against foreign doctors. As suspects, defendants, and convicted criminals, South Asians from India and Pakistan are over-represented to an extraordinary extent. In July, Accident and Emergency doctor Mohammed Tariquezzaman, 55, was struck off the medical register after fondling a 20 year old patient during a routine medical exam. The victim, referred to as Patient A throughout the hearing, recalled how Tariquezzaman watched her get undressed in a consulting room in University College Hospital before he pulled her underwear down to her thighs and smirked as he said she had a “nice body.” Despite the patient saying she felt uncomfortable as he fondled her genitals, Tariquezzaman laughed and said: “This isn’t the first time this has been done to you.” He then asked for her phone number and offered her free treatment at his private practice, suggesting they “go out for a curry.”

Mohammed Tariquezzaman – “Want to go out for a curry?”

In January, midlands family doctor Jaswant Rathore, 60, was jailed for 12 years for sexually assaulting four of his patients. Rathore was convicted of eight charges of sexual assault and two counts of assault by penetration on patients over a period of two and a half years. He had assaulted patients who came to see him with medical complaints ranging from vomiting to hayfever, pretending that medical “massages,” or

Iftekhar Ahmed – “Do you like licking?”

intimate sexual groping, were necessary for diagnosis or treatment. In June, Huddersfield gynaecologist Iftekhar Ahmed was found guilty of several sexual misconduct offences in relation to his treatment of a female patient. Ahmed, 51, who is now believed to be practising medicine in the United States, is originally from Bangladesh. He was found guilty of conducting an intimate examination of the patient without her consent, asking her inappropriate sexual questions including: “Do you like licking?”, and asking her if she wanted to have sex while examining her. He then asked “what sex toys she used and if he could look at them.” Ahmed watched the patient undress, and later “accessed her medical records for her telephone number and called her numerous times, asking her more inappropriate questions about her privates.

In another horrific case, homosexual Indian-born family doctor Manav Arora, 37, was jailed for two years after  being found guilty of sexually assaulting a male patient. Arora performed oral sex on the patient, who had limited movement, while inserting a catheter. The trial also heard from two men who claim they were assaulted in the same way by Arora four years earlier. After the verdict, the prosecutor said Arora had also been suspended in 2005 after a similar accusation was made at a hospital in Portsmouth, but had then been allowed to resume working with the public. Arora had also received a caution from West Midlands Police after being caught engaging in a sex act with another man in a public park less than two weeks after the incident for which he was convicted. The case was reminiscent of that of Farouk Patel, 35, a Leicester family doctor who was cleared in January of sexually assaulting a male patient but admitted to having “risky homosexual sex” with a number of men in his consulting room, and was described by prosecutors as having “a voracious appetite for homosexual sex.”

Female patients of course represent the majority of victims. In March, hospital doctor Maher Khetyar was struck off the medical register after being found guilty of sexually abusing two female patients and a female colleague. In the case of each of the patients, Khetyar pretended to conduct legitimate medical examinations, fondling their breasts for sexual reasons.” In April, family doctor Rajeshkumar Mehta, 64, was jailed for sexually assaulting a patient who visited him fearing she had heart attack symptoms. Mehta used the opportunity to grope the woman’s breasts before asking her “questions about her personal life and sexual partners.” Just after I published my first TOO essay on this subject, family doctor Mohammed Ihsan, 35, went before a medical tribunal following accusations of sexual assault against one of his patients. According to reports, Ihsan “unzipped his trousers and offered to have sex with a female patient when she asked him about the contraceptive pill.” He then allegedly put his crotch in the face of the woman and kissed her on the lips, telling her: “Having lots of sex makes you healthy.” Alan Taylor, a lawyer for the General Medical Council, added: “Following that, doctor Ihsan said to Patient B: “I want to show you something. I want you to see my b***s.” He repeated this and kept saying: “I really, really want you to see my b***s,” and he stood up, unzipped his trousers and put his crotch near her face.”  He also asked if he could install pornography on her home computer.”

Mohammed Ihsan – “Having lots of sex makes you healthy.”

The most notorious recent case of sexual abuse on a patient, however, did not occur in the U.K. but in the United States, where the problem of Third World doctors is also rapidly coming to prominence. Last week, Texas doctor Shafeeq Sheikh managed to avoid doing jail time despite being convicted of raping a heavily sedated and asthmatic patient. What makes the light sentence even more galling was the calculating and callous nature of Sheikh’s crime. Everything had been premeditated, including his disabling of the patient’s nurse alarm, and measures he undertook to ensure uninterrupted access to her room.

Patients are not the only at-risk persons from Third World doctors. Colleagues, especially junior colleagues, and other members of the public are equally vulnerable to the predations of sexual psychopaths from the sub-continent. In November 2017, Imran Rauf Qureshi received just a 12 month suspension for groping a nurse’s breasts while working at Trafford General Hospital in Manchester. Qureshi later claimed he was “looking for a romantic friendship” with the nurse but that “cultural differences” meant his approaches had been misinterpreted — an excuse dismissed by the Medical Tribunal. Just a few months ago, Accident and Emergency doctor Srikishen Parthasarathy, 44 and from Bangalore, received just a 2-month suspension from the Medical Tribunal after sexually assaulting two trainee nurses, including grabbing one between the legs. One nursing assistant claimed Parthasarathy tried to “grab her breasts, slapped her on the bottom and asked ‘do you swallow?” In March, orthopaedic surgeon Milind Mehta, then located at a hospital in Scotland, escaped punishment of any kind despite being found guilty of sexually assaulting a colleague. Mehta “asked the woman into his office at Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin, Scotland, on the pretext of showing her medical slides — only to press himself against her chest before kissing her repeatedly around the neck and shoulder.” He apparently escaped punishment for this by organizing Powerpoint presentations using himself as the example to stop other doctors harassing colleagues. A more reassuring punishment was delivered when in November 2017 Accident and Emergency doctor Mohammed Yasin was struck off the medical register after repeatedly groping two nurses and pressing himself against them. Egyptian senior gynaecologist Khaled Ismail, 50, was permanently struck off the medical register in June after groping a midwife while she was busy delivering twins, and molesting three other female junior colleagues over a two-year period.

II. Negligence and Incompetence

Aside from sexual abuse, the most common instances of malpractice among Third World doctors concern gross negligence and incompetence. Back in March the world stood aghast at news that Kenyan doctors at Nairobi’s Kenyatta National Hospital had performed brain surgery on the wrong patient. The entire staff involved in the surgery was suspended after it came to light they only discovered they had the wrong patient after hours of searching for a blood clot that was in fact in another patient. Such stories may, among those with the darkest sense of humor, have a certain comedic value. Unfortunately, the West’s ongoing practice of importing medical staff from the Third World has resulted in similar travesties being played out in our own nations. In June, a medical tribunal found that Indian senior gynaecologist Vaishnavy Laxman committed a “failure in her clinical decision-making” when she decided to make her patient deliver a premature baby naturally rather than via c-section. According to The Telegraph:

When Laxman urged the patient to push whilst she applied traction to the baby’s legs, the baby was decapitated with the head remaining stuck in the womb. Two other doctors subsequently carried out a c-section to remove the head, which was “re-attached” to the baby’s body so that his mother could hold him.”

Despite the tribunal’s findings, Laxman was permitted to return to work immediately because, in the tribunal’s estimation, her conduct represented “a single error of judgement made in very difficult circumstances” — an apologia likely to bring little comfort to the mother of the decapitated infant, or to those who are yet to come under Laxman’s “care.”

Hadiza Bawa-Garba

Another doctor soon to be back in U.K. hospital wards is the Nigerian Accident and Emergency physician Hadiza Bawa-Garba. Just a couple of weeks ago Bawa-Garba successfully overturned a decision to strike her from the medical register following her role in the death of a six-year-old boy with Down’s Syndrome. Jack Adcock had been admitted to hospital with sickness and diarrhoea. After an initial examination, he was treated for acute gastroenteritis and dehydration but his condition continued to deteriorate. It subsequently emerged that he had been suffering from pneumonia. He went into septic shock, which led to organ failure and a heart attack, and he was pronounced dead within hours of his arrival. In reviewing the case, the Medical Tribunal found a series of errors committed by Bawa-Garba, a fact that led to her receiving a criminal conviction and a 24-month suspended sentence for gross negligence manslaughter. The General Medical Council subsequently moved to have her permanently struck off the medical register, but was frustrated in its efforts by an appeal court which ruled days ago that “Dr Bawa-Garba is a competent and useful doctor, who represents no material continuing danger to the public and can provide considerable useful future service to society.”

III. Drug Abuse, Fraud, and Violence

Third World doctors have also proven highly problematic in relation to access to drugs. Indian Hemanth Karkala Kamath was struck off the medical register after it was discovered he had stolen 16 ampoules of drug Midozalam, a hypnotic sedation drug, while working for Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust in the anaesthetics department. Meanwhile Zimbabwean oncology doctor Tichafasey Mtetwa, was struck off the register after it emerged he had a history of stealing prescription drugs for personal use as well as there bring “concerns raised about his clinical assessment, diagnosis, knowledge and behavior.”

Kashif Samin – Miracle Man

Questions should also be raised about the assessment and verification of qualifications purportedly held by immigrant doctors. In July, 41 year old family doctor Kashif Samin was struck off the medical register after it was discovered his curriculum vitae boasted of 46 years of medical experience— meaning the miraculous Mr Samin was practising medicine five years before his birth. Samin also claimed to be a Fellow of the American Association of Aesthetic Surgeons when he was not, and claimed he’d had an article published in the Journal of Gastroentology, but no evidence was found that it existed and it was deemed “entirely fictitious.”

Patterns of aggression also continue to be observed among immigrant medical staff. Last week Turkish eye doctor Erkan Mutlukan was struck off the medical register after complaints were raised about his conduct at a Scottish hospital. Mutlukan appears to have expected this result and has already relocated to the United States, where he is recorded as operating an ophthalmology clinic in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. A Medical Tribunal found Mutlukan had demonstrated a “sustained and repeated pattern of appalling behaviour including stamping on a colleague’s Dictaphone, calling black agency staff apes and primates, and branding elderly patients time-wasters.” In a decision unlikely to comfort the citizens of Wilbraham, the Medical Practitioners’ Tribunal Service (MPTS) concluded that Mutlukan “posed a potential danger to patients.”

Conclusion

The Western reliance on, and need for, foreign doctors is largely illusional. We need surplus doctors only to the extent that we possess surplus populations. One of the problems of the contemporary West is not only that we have lost sight of our past, but also, and perhaps more importantly, that we have lost sight of our future. There is almost no sensible planning for the future or co-ordinated education of our youth. We live in an age where the supposed cure for every socio-economic problem is the injection of more diversity, rather than producing more children and educating them according to the needs of the present and future.

The belief that importing workers is a panacea to economic pressures was always built on false foundations. The classic example is the nation bemoaning a lack of plumbers and builders, which then imports cohorts of foreign plumbers and builders – who then need many more homes to live in, requiring more plumbers and builders to construct them, and so on. Similarly, in contemporary Britain, massive pressures on the National Health Service caused by mass immigration are being “eased” via the mass immigration of dubiously-trained foreign doctors. The only result of this development is the rapid decline in the quality of service offered by the NHS, the increased danger faced by patients, and the further expansion of multiculturalism into all areas of life.

The only sensible solution to this chaos is to conclusively bring the multicultural project to an end, to repatriate the surplus populations, and eject those whose dubious “skills” are no longer required. If we hope to make any progress at all in this respect, we will need to see an end to the culture of denunciation that singled out Peter Duffy. And we will need to turn the tables on traitors sending anonymous letters about “racism” and consigning their countrymen to a fate worthy of despair.
