Addressing a press conference at the hunger strikers’ camp at the Civil Hospital, he threatened that doctors serving in various hospitals would resign en masse if protection was not provided to them.
He said that so far 26 doctors, including cardiologist Dr Munaf Tareen, had been kidnapped and 18 others died in targeted attacks.
“We are unsafe and the government is least concerned in providing us protection or freeing Dr Tareen who was kidnapped on September 17. Keeping in view the lukewarm attitude of the administration and police, we have decided to form a private force for security,” he added.
Dr Haqdad said that today (Monday) Dr Luqman Hakim, Dr Asmatullah Kakar, Prof Luqman Butt, Dr Behram Khan Achakzai, Dr Kaleemullah Kakar, Prof Nusrat Riaz and Prof Shafiur Rehman had observed token hunger strike from morning till afternoon in protest against the continued incidents of kidnapping of doctors and attacks on them.
Slamming the law-enforcement agencies for allegedly advising doctors to make a deal with abductors for the release of their kidnapped colleagues, Dr Haqdad said the government knew who the culprits were yet it was helpless to take action against them. “Hence it has no right to govern,” he added.
