The plight of Pak workers in Bahrain protests

Following is an eye witness account received from a staffer in Salmaniya Medical Complex, Bahrain where he was witness to the brutality exerted on poor Pakistani workers at the hands of the protesters which had laid siege to this complex for well over 3 weeks and in the last three days had stormed inside the hospital, set up their own media unit and were beating Pakistani’s right under the doctors noses in this hospital. Currently this hospital has been taken over by the army and all the protesters have been routed out.

I am a Bahraini medical staff member in Salmaniya please i want my story of what happened in Salmaniya to be told to people.

Being a human being it is my duty to let the people know the reality of what happened in Salmaniya on Saturday night and early part of Sunday 13th March 2011 in Salmaniya emergency.

I was present there in emergency, I am narrating to you the incident about the Pakistani labor workers who came to emergency, the arrival of Pakistanis beaten to death was hailed as a moral victory for narrow minded medical staff of SMC including some doctors and nurses which were chanting victory slogans as they had achieved a victory and against our king these poor labor guys were taken out of ambulances as animals with hands coughed and with oozing blood from their body were kicked and verbally abused as they had come to a prison not a hospital where patients are slaughtered.

The poor labor guys whom I talked to were innocent laborers who had been sleeping in their rooms in manama when armed people attacked them in about 30-40 with knives, swords and sticks, these guys got fractures, wound lacerations, and were then set on fire by inhuman terrorists, after a delayed of initial treatment some of doctors and nurses refuse to treat them saying that these are loyal people of government and should not get treatment, one of critically injured was left to die as they thought there was no purpose saving his life and allowed some cameramen and video makers of some fundamental channels to take picture even before they started treatment, they treated them like animals, the patients were shifted to another room where I saw them being threatened to say what the false media and hospital staff people wanted them to say, they wanted to portray that these guys were in ministry or army and the poor labor guys were asked that how much money has government given you to kill protestors, with a stand on camera in place like shooting in some television studio and people threatening patients to confess to the most stupidity I have ever heard to say that police had harmed them, they were beating the patients and telling them to confess or they will kill all of them, these already beaten to death were crying and pleading for their lives this was happening in the presence of some terrorist doctors, nurses and security staff, watching all this I felt like crying, after seeing the inhuman behavior of staff of SMC, they are not worth calling humans, I felt really disgusted, I wanted to do something but was helpless there was no security in hospital to which I could go and complain, I said to Allah in my heart , Ya Allah you are watching this and you only decide what should be done with those who are a shame to humanity, I rest this case on Allah!!!

People in SMC are mercenaries, but now as army has taken over the hospital I am hopeful good changes will come and I welcome this move by the government, these in human staff had made this hospital into a terror camp I sometimes feel like I am working in Iran not Bahrain where people are forced to practice unethical things, I want the Bahraini government to kick out these racist doctors belonging to political sect, these senior doctors are brainwashing the new generation of doctors to be with a political sect and gives negative vibes against our king, always portraying that the government has done something wrong while on contrary these people try to give a negative image of our government to world and false media, all this is against the hypocrite oath of doctors as well as ethics, I also would like this so cold negative media to be banned from viewing in hospital, these reporters don’t respect the confidentiality of patients at the time of pain which is against all medical ethics and human rights please I request the higher authorities and human right activist to take action against these medical doctors and nurses and these false media reporters and kick theses people out of SMC!

I am hiding my identity, and I am not going to work in SMC until security is assured to people of Bahrain, and I love Bahrain, I love my king, I love people of Bahrain weather they are Sunni or Shia, all are my brothers and sisters, thanking you from a Bahraini who loves his country!!!!!!! May this country become more peaceful and heaven on earth.
