PIMA stands with medical students of Balochistan

The Pakistan Islamic Medical Association (PIMA) has strongly condemned the discriminatory policy of the Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) for three new medical colleges of Balochistan.

Central President PIMA Dr. Khubaib Shahid, former Central President Dr. Ata-ur-Rehman and PIMA Balochistan President Dr. Sarwar Badini said in a statement on Tuesday, that according to the normal procedures of the PMC, any medical college is recognized by inspecting and looking at the quality of faculty with all its batches. But by amending the laws, the burden of additional examination has been imposed on the students of Balochistan which is incomprehensible. It is not included in the rules and regulations of the commission to deseat the students who have failed in additional examination resulting the loss of three or four precious years of students.

They said that this policy could lead to the promotion of extremism among students. They are right to ask why this discriminatory policy is being implemented for them. It is unfortunate that students from Balochistan have been protesting on the roads instead of going to their colleges for several days, and the authorities have not listened to them.

PIMA announced full support for the demands of these students and urges the government, the Supreme Court and all political parties to take notice of this discriminatory policy.
