Why India’s top doctors have a problem with ‘white people’
On the day after the Narendra Modi government announced a ban on “white people” from working in government-run hospitals, some of the nation’s top medical leaders expressed concern about the potential health effects of the ban.
The country’s top health leaders have repeatedly warned against the health risks of a blanket ban on all people of color, even though they said it would be beneficial to the country’s health.
On Thursday, the country also held its first-ever national debate on the issue.
“We do not want to say that the government is going to take away our right to live, but we do think it will be beneficial for us to be educated,” said Dr. Udaya Chakraborty, president of the Indian Medical Association.
“There is no reason why we should not be educated about this.
The health system, the doctors and the medical profession have to work together to ensure the health of our people,” Chakraberty said.
Doctors in India are among the world’s most underrepresented minority, and have a disproportionately low number of minorities in their ranks.
India has an estimated 4.6 million doctors, but only about 7% of the country is made up of minority ethnic groups.
“It is important that we are aware of the problem, because the health system in India is already in crisis,” said Anuj Thakur, the president of Indian Medical Students Association.
India’s largest medical union, the Medical Council of India, recently called for a “national discussion” on the health effects and effects of “white-only” hospitals.
On Monday, the union released a statement on its website that urged doctors to “work towards a dialogue” on health concerns, and that the “whiteness of our profession is not an excuse.”
In response, Chakrabrety said that he believed the “biggest challenge” faced by the medical industry in India was not the lack of doctors, it was the lack, or lack of awareness about, issues affecting minorities.
“The majority of us are black or Indian or Pakistani, and we do not know about the health problems of those people.
We need to work on that,” he said.
“That is the biggest challenge that we have in the Indian medical system.”
In a speech on Wednesday, Dr. Anupam Goyal, the chairman of the Board of Medical Councils, urged doctors “to be aware of this issue and work towards it.”
“This is a serious issue that we need to take into account,” Goyal said.
A panel on Wednesday also recommended that the country “open its doors wide” to all ethnicities, in the name of “health, economic, social and cultural integration.”
In December, India’s Supreme Court ruled that the ban on people of a specific race and gender was unconstitutional, saying that the constitution protects the right of people to “free speech and freedom of religion.”
The court did not rule on whether or not the government had the right to ban people on a particular basis.
India is one of the most populous countries in the world, and the country has a population of about one billion.
