In the past days, there were many complaints made by the medical fraternity against the kind of violence they are facing. In the present time the medical fraternity is no-one less than the Almighty himself. They have been the ones saving the lives of many people while their own life is in danger. Every night after treating n number of patients they have to return to their family having the same scary thought that if they are infected by the Virus then they might risk the lives of the other family members as well.
Now, pelting stones or beating them is not justified in any way. They are doing nothing just saving the lives of the infected people. They are termed as warriors in some parts whereas they are being beaten in the other.
Following the complaints from the medical fraternity, the union cabinet has finally decided to make acts of violence against doctors and other medical staff as a cognizable and non-bailable offence. Union Minister Prakash Javadekar has informed that the cabinet has approved of the promulgation of Ordinance to amend the Epidemic Diseases Act, 19897. It carries imprisonment of 6 months to 7 years that too non-bailable.
This has to happen because if a murder takes place then he is guilty of killing a person but those who are being violent against the medical fraternity can be held responsible for the loss of lives of many people. We should keep in mind that a doctor can save hundreds of lives and is responsible for the same. By harming a doctor you people would be harming hundreds of lives!
