LAHORE (PR): Pakistan Tibbi Ittehad Chief Organiser Hakeem Amjad Waheed Bhatti has welcomed government Punjab crackdown against quakes and fake doctors across the province and assured their forum’s full support to Punjab government in this regard. However, he warned that on the name of crackdown against quakes and fake doctors, homeopathic doctors and hakeems should not be harassed by Health Department teams and these teams should be confined within their jurisdiction.

Hakeem Amjad Waheed Bhatti further said that past history revealed that all campaigns of Health Department against quakes had ended perturbing homeopathic doctors and hakems. “We also want elimination of quakes across the province but not on the cost of hakeem and homeopathic doctors”, he added.

He hoped that this time Health department teams would not harass hakeems and homeopathic doctors on the usage of BP apparatus and stethoscope.

He also appealed Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to immediately approve service structure for hakeem.
