  1. Dear readers,

    J-K minister ‘adjusts’ woman doctor’s collar, pic goes viral


    In February this year, Singh was accused by a woman doctor of mental harassment after he rebuked her for not wearing the apron. In her complaint he snapped his finger at me and said “Thmhra kam ho gaya,chalo niklo bahar”.

    Is our globetrotting PM Modi busy packing his bags for scheduel Ex-soviet states visit does he wantched another #SelfieWithDaughter of a BJP Minister Lal Singh holding a doctor by her collar. Such respect for women!

    Is this health minister inspired by negative role of Prem chopra?

    Jai Hind

  2. Sharia Pandita,
    The BJP Minister may be an idiot for being rude to a female doctor. However, he is thousand times better than your leaders who won’t even allow a woman to work outside her house. This guy complained about apron. But, you will be complaining about her not covering from head-to-toe with a black dress!! Do you still support the medieval dress code and oppression of women?

  3. This guy complained about apron-Atheist Mr.Original

    Sir,If objections are over apron,he would have asked senior Doctor to correct it. Well he seems to be more interest in body patting like Prem Chopra in Bollywood movie.

    Does covering from head-to-toe with black dress cause inconvenience to the practice or discharge her duty?There are many Nuns cover simillarlly offering their public service free of charge.Does it affects patient patience seeking medical help?

    What does body exposure has to do with patient seeking medical help? Doctors in operation theaters covered fully to Sterilize do they need to practice in nude?

    Well western culture has polluted your thinking to more Degradable level which is rejected in the society. I can assume what dirty thinking going around in your mind.

    When did you seek last blessing from your spiritual guru Nitayanada?

    Jai hind
