President of ‘The Islamic Medical Association’ faces discipline hearing following attack on gays

Filed under: Uncategorized — moderator @ 9:46 am

A GP has been suspended by a Midland healthcare trust amid allegations he labelled gay and transsexual patients “twisted”.

Ol' Doc SiddiqDr Muhammad Siddiq, president of The (UK) Islamic Medical Association, is being investigated by Walsall Primary Care Trust over a letter sent to doctors’ magazine Pulse.

The letter, which he is alleged to have written, was responding to an article which claimed the profession was ‘homophobic’.

The communication, only part-published by Pulse, apparently mocked the fate of a transsexual patient referred to Dr Siddiq by The Samaritans.

It read: “Changing male to female, then reverse change and vice versa. They play with their bodies and waste NHS funds.

The letter, which he is alleged to have written, was responding to an article which claimed the profession was ‘homophobic’.

“The gays are worse than the ordinary careless citizens of this country.

“They are causing spread of illness by their irresponsible behaviour. They are the root cause of many sexually transmitted diseases. They neither need sympathy nor help. What they need is a stick of law to put them on the right path, mend their ways and behaviour and to protect society from their ravages.”

Walsall Primary Care Trust bosses spotted a follow-up article carried by Pulse and have now launched a full investigation.

Moderator’s note: One wonders if the Islamic MD’s from the UK, allegedly responsible for the recent attacks on Glasgow Airport were also ‘fellows’ of Dr. Siddiq’s (UK) Islamic Medical Association.
