AHMEDABAD: Growing terrorist unrest and a hostile attitude towards minorities in Pakistan forced over 20 doctors to migrate to Gujarat last year. This is the largest migration of medical professionals to the state – the highest so far being nine (1999) after the Kargil war and eight in 1970. The number could go up this year.
Over the past over four decades, 64 doctors have migrated to the safe haven of Gujarat from Pakistan, mostly from the Sindh province, and registered with the Gujarat Medical Council. Sources say the number of doctors who have migrated but not yet registered could be much higher.
Most of these doctors have completed their MBBS from the Sindh University. These doctors have left behind a thriving practice after they were haunted out by the terror organizations in Pakistan.
Dr Kailash Kumar Maheshwari, who was forced to give up his home in Pakistan, said, “I migrated with my family to Ahmedabad in 1998. I had completed my MBBS degree. The situation in Sindh is not conducive for minorities.”
Maheshwari said things have only become worse. “Many more doctors have come to Ahmedabad via Kutch. We feel secure here rather than in Sindh”.
