A British doctor needs a lesson in good medicine.
In a piece for Pulse, a magazine for general practitioners, the president of the Islamic Medical Association, Dr Muhammad Siddiq allegedly wrote:
There is punishment and fine if you throw rubbish or filth in the streets. The gays are worse than the ordinary careless citizen. They are causing the spread of disease with their irresponsible behavior. They are the root of many sexually transmitted diseases.
Siddiq also wrote that gays need “the stick of the law to put them on the right path”.
That sounds like some repressed shit right there.
Following a blast of rightful outrage, Siddiq tried to weasel out of the embarrassing situation by claiming his son wrote the offensive piece. Secularism‘s report, however, suggests otherwise:
When the magazine checked with Dr Siddiq, he made no effort to deny that these were his views. Allegedly, he has privately told his colleagues that he had actually written the letter.
Now a number of good doctors are calling for Siddiq’s head, saying he should undergo a “fitness-to-practice” exam. If he fails, they say, his license should be suspended. We say fuck the test, send him back to medical school.
