Sorry, there are honest doctors in India.

An Indian left his job and joined salesman's job in a big department stores in Canada.

Boss :- Do you have any experience?

Indian : Yes a little too much...

On the first day, that Indian worked with full mind.

At 6 pm the Boss :- How many sales did you sell on the first day today?

Indian : Sir I sold 1

Boss : Only 1 sale ??? Usually every salesman working here does 20 to 30 sales daily. Well, tell me how much money did you sell ???

Indian : $93300 dollars.

Boss : What ??? But how did you do it?

Indian : 1 person came and I sold him a small fishing hook.
Then a mazola and then finally sold a big hook. Then I sold him 1 big fishing rods and some fishing gear.

Then I asked him where do you go to catch fish and he said in the coastal area....

Then I said it would need a boat. So I took him down to the boat department and sold him a 20 ft double engine scooner boat.

When he said this boat won't come in his Volkas Wagon, I took him to the auto mobile section and sold him the new Deluxe 4 x 4 blazer to carry the boat.
And when I asked him where would be going fishing ??? He didn't plan anything. So I took him to the camping section and sold him a six sleeper camper tent.

And then he said when he took all that he would take $ 200 groceries and 2 cases of beer.

Now the boss took 2 steps back and asked in a very rude way :- *You sold all this to the man who came to buy only 1 fish hook*???

Indian : "NO, SIR..." *He only came to take 1 tablet for the headache.... I explained to him that fishing is the best way to get rid of headaches.*

Boss : Where did you work before ??? *In India*???

Indian : Yes, I was a doctor in a private hospital : On a minor complaint of panic, we get the patients tested for pathology, ECO, ECG, TMT, CT scan, X-ray, MRI etc.

Boss : You sit on my chair. I am going to join a private hospital for training in India

The joke itself is very old, but the way it was adapted to Indian doctors is actually pretty close to the truth. I'm told the situation in Pakistan is similar.

Greed, intention, ill conduct and so on.
Alhumdulillah, most are not in the medical field for this reason, but a spoilt few really do tarnish the reputation of others.

This is happening for decades. Even for minor illness, we offer sadaqah, do dua "bismillahillazi laa yazurruhu...." (Thinking about doctor). Allahumma laa sahla illa........ (give strength to save from doctor). And other duas. The reason:

Medical industry can turn a minor illness to major illness, leading even to a major surgery and hospital stay for weeks, they can make it Life threatening. For example; for simple abdomen pain, they do surgery, post surgery complications leading to worst......

Recently there was a survey, in one town, for years no lady had a normal delivery, every one had Cesarean delivery through surgery. Reason, patient gets 3 times hospital bill.

This epidemic, no one is ready to consult a doctor, people are using off the shelf medicines (easily available in India without prescription). Unfortunately there are a few fatalities because of this.

There was a medical bulletin claiming Majority of Indians can't be treated though entire spectrum of drugs presently available. Because doctors have prescribed all types of medicines even for minor illness and common man have become resistant for drugs. But the Doctor gets cuts from pharma companies.

When I was in Pakistan I heard many stories of ill conduct in the hospital's.

One thing I feared was ending up in hospital or taking anyone from my family to the hospital. It was my second biggest fear (the first was getting shot :( because of the stories we got told)

I also hated the idea of paying for medical services because in the UK, we get it free. So I was always fed negative views about them.

Then one day, my son became sick. We took him to a specialist pediatrician.

We had to pay fees just to write his name down :( then pay for him to be seen and then pay for the medicines etc. All of which would've been free in the UK! Even hospital admissions or operations are free in the UK under the NHS.

Whilst we were there, the first thing I saw in the doctors room was a News paper called Dharb e Mu'min. This is when I felt relaxed and thought this was interesting.

I asked the doctor about the paper and his response was nice. But he was surprised that I knew about it, especially coming from London.

I told him that I've read every edition since it came out in English in the UK. In fact I told him that I had every edition ever printed in English over the years. (I no longer have these)

The doctor examined my son and said that my son needed to change his diet (my son didn't really like the food and was very young at the time too). He advised us on what to feed him, from the type of oil to the types of food and how to cook it etc.

This doctor gave us amazing advice and 100% attention and was one of the best doctors we'd met in years. MashaAllah.

Slowly slowly, we went for further visits for other things over the years and got to see other doctors and nurses and I must admit, the care they took in their job was brilliant.

It wasn't a private hospital, just the local hospital.

Ever since, anyone who told me that the doctors were corrupt, I would ask them if they'd just heard it or experienced it. Most had said they heard it, a minority said they experienced it.


One lesson I would tell them, since my urdu isn't great, I would say, "Jesi karni, wesi bharni" and in English I would say, "What goes round, comes round". So I left them with something to ponder on.

Perhaps in India by Indian doctors. And perhaps by Pakistani doctors in Pakistan.

But for me personally, I haven't visited my GP for about 14 years. Last time I went to see my GP for myself was when my daughter was born as I came down with a severe sore throat and high temperature.

My doctor who happened to be a Muslim and Indian was surprised to see me because I never go. He checked me and told me clearly what I was to do.

His first piece of advice was not to take any medication and that I should fight it off and let my immune system get used to it and be able to defend me when needed. He said it would go away in 3-5 days.

Second thing he said to me was that he could prescribe antibiotics and that I would get better in 3-5 days but that would mean the illness would comeback and I wouldn't be able to fight it as well I should be able to.

He didn't want to give me a prescription but he only did so due to my insistence. I had upset him :(


Doctors are paid a commission for every prescription they write and the medicine is purchased (free for children, elderly and the poor)

This doctor would always tell us other natural ways to get better and would hate giving prescriptions.

This Indian doctor always gave 200% attention and advice to his patients, regardless of their religion, race, gender and so on. And there are so many doctors like this, Muslims and non Muslim, Alhumdulillah.

You're absolutely correct. I'm sorry. I should have explicitly stated that it applies only to some doctors, not all. There are still more good doctors than bad doctors, or else the whole medical industry would have come crumbling down in the subcontinent.

My first line on OP is; there are exceptions.

I give an example. India is known as a poor country. But we have Ambanis, Tatas, Birlas, Mallya etc. People live Nariman point in Mumbai. Similarly the medical industry, majority are looters. A few can be counted easily in a city are pious, god fearing, honest etc.

I have many experiences of honesty in doctors. May be Allah SWT guided me to those doctors, a million thanks to Allah SWT. But news we receive for majority of patients is horrifying.

The reason for this is; Medical education in India is very very expensive, many crores till he becomes a specialist, expert consultant/surgeon. Those doctors who have spent that money, they want returns whatever way it could be. To get an appointment in Govt hospital, 10s of lakhs are paid as bribe.

This is real story, may be from Pakistan. Can someone please translate this to english.

This is story about a honest Neurologist. One poor boy was getting treated in hospital where he was working. The mother wanted to abort his treatment due to lack of funds. The Medical industry was not helping the boy and planning to discharge the patient half way through his treatment.. This Doctor sahib deposits all his haj expenses for the boy's treatment. Later he witnesses Allah's nusrath. One rich person was going for haj and he had demanded from the hospital that one neurologist must accompany him. He shall pay the fee for that and also sponsor haj for him.

Any takers for Allah's nusrath.

Followers of all religions are looking for real humans (Insaan) who serve the humanity with selflessness. In present Pandemic, people are searching for human doctors among beasts.

Who can supply these human doctors? Muslims can; they have this heritage. They do it to get returns from Allah SWT, the barakah, aafiyah etc, they live with contentment.

A doctor's selfless service to a family when they are in dire situation is better than an year of tahajjud.

There are 2 ways of getting these type of doctors,
1. pious families must get their children, the best medical education and expertise. Instruct their children, you will inherit from us millions of rupees/pounds/dollars, don't accumulate wealth through your career; serve the humanity.

2. Bring piety and the character described above in Muslim doctors. Whichever group, tanzeem, jamaath, organisation etc. does this, a million salutes to them.

Many times in hospitals and clinics, the junior staff working there guided innocent patients to leave their hospital and move to another honest hospital. They advised "you are trapped here in this hospital, your hard earned money need not be spent here. Immediately take your patient to some other hospital".

In one case, a greedy doctor suggested two separate visits to hospital for surgery of tonsillitis and growth in nose for a child. A honest Hindu doctor, after surgery for tonsillitis told the parents, "there was a growth in child's nose , I have cleared that, it is not on records, you need not pay for that". Think of earlier doctor; two separate visits, two times anesthesia, pain and agony for both the small child and parents. But doctor wants money.

Many such incidents.
