KARACHI– Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) showed their concern over the ongoing campaign against senior Dr. Saeed Akhtar, Head of Pakistan Kidney and Liver Transplant Institute, Lahore.
President, Prof Muhammad Ashraf Nizami, Secretary General PMA, Dr. SM Qaisar Sajjad and other senior members of the association, advocated for Dr. Akhtar, stating that he is a renowned surgeon of repute, and was working abroad at a salary of over US $100,000.
He sacrificed his job to serve his homeland, agreeing to work on a much lesser salary package. Acting upon his request, 20 more experienced doctors from UK and USA came back to serve Pakistan with enthusiasm and patriotism.
It is perplexing to hear such derogatory remarks for a person of his caliber, without having any substantial proof of.
PMA demanded that, all health professionals should be given respect and be provided with an atmosphere of peace, so they can serve their nation with dedication.
