Dr Shafi – Victim Of Professional Jealousy & Racism Of Medical Professionals

By Latheef Farook

Latheef Farook

Dr Mohamed Shafi of Kurunegala Teaching Hospital who was taken to custody in the wake of the Easter Sunday massacre and was detained for 47 days for questioning before he was released says “he was a victim of professional jealousy and shameful racism among medical professionals”.

Speaking to me about his sufferings he said “the first five days in the custody were extremely difficult. He was confused and did not know what was going on, but later the condition began to improve as the CID started to realize the charges against him were false and there was no evidence against him “.

“The main purpose of this conspiracy is to destroy me and demonize my community as the shameful media did as planned in advance, as part of the conspiracy against Muslim community”, said Dr Shafi.

According to him the country needs to know the truth and the true face of evil forces destroying communal harmony for personal benefits. Therefore, he plans to organize a press conference shortly to expose all those involved and the damage caused to him, his family and the community as a whole. He considers “all those involved in this conspiracy as threat to communal harmony and need to be exposed in the larger interest of the country”.

Born into a middle-class family which firmly believes in education and serve people, Dr Shafi, passed out from Jayewardenepura University in 2003 and joined Kurunegala Teaching Hospital in 2004. In keeping with his family and religious values he chose medicine with the intention of serving people.

Dr. Shafi

His elder sister and brother in law are doctors. His brother is doing management accountant. He married a junior in the medical profession, Imara Nazeer, who worked in the same hospital.

Hand in hand he was involved in social service to help the education of poor in and around the area. This included Rs 100,000 scholarships and most benefitted were relatives of his Sinhalese employees.

As part of this he joined Athugalpura Science Development Academy project and produced more than 30 medical students per annum. As patron of many social service organization he used to advise and help them a great deal.

He did everything with his income. He loved his profession as a noble one and in his work at gynecological and obstetrics department he tried help as many poor people as possible.

All these activities won the hearts and minds of especially Sinhalese who loved him as he helped all alike without racial, religious or any other prejudice.

This caused jealousy among his colleagues in the medical profession. This was the reason why some doctors conspired against him. In this regard he vehemently accused and condemned the role of Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) which he described as a racist mafia spearheaded the campaign against him.

According to him the GMOA reported to have spent around Rs 750,000 to cover up and protect a non-Muslim doctor who was involved in the incident of giving an injection following which a child died. However, GMOA never came forward to help him only because he was a Muslim. Instead GMOA openly played a prominent role in the campaign to destroy his image with lies and deception.

He accused Professor Channa Jayasumana, Director Wirabandra, Deputy Director Chandana Kaendangamuwa, GMOA Kurunegala branch secretary, of openly working against him. They even held a media conference and asked people to complain against him.

He accused GMOA of even pressuring doctors not to support him in any way. One lady doctor was almost threatened by GMOA not to support him.

False allegations against him were a very well-planned conspiracy to harm him. In this regard he also accused Parliamentarians Wimal Weerawansa and Udaya Gammanpila of playing a lead role in this conspiracy only because he was a Muslims and liked by all alike.

As part of this conspiracy even before he was arrested plotters started spreading the rumor that he was about to be arrested. As stated, two policemen came and took him for questioning though there was no complain at all from anyone.

He was kept under police custody and wanted to send him to Kegalle prison. When he asked why, he was told that he was under detention order for three months. However, there was no specific allegation.

They told him not to ask any question and also didn’t allow anyone to visit him. On May 25th he was brought to CID fourth floor Gang Robbery Branch in Colombo where he was subjected to intensive investigation.

It was very tough at the beginning and the CID insisted on me telling the truth assuring that they would protect me if someone tries to create problem. All allegations were later disproved.

He said CID officials were good and once they begin to realize that all allegations against him were false they were lenient. He spent 47 days in custody and slept on a rubber mat without a pillow. He could not sleep without pillow. So filled a water bottle and kept it as pillow to sleep .He found the situation extremely difficult besides mental torture.

The situation was unbearable and he could not believe that he was passing through this ordeal for no fault of him. In fact even nurses were very angry and upset about his plight. Seventy Sinhalese nurses gave strong evidence in sport of him to CID.

All allegations, including allegation of possessing wealth, proved lies and he was confident that truth will triumph. While he was in custody his wife passed through her worst period in life as she could not even go on shopping. Everyone looked at her with suspicion.

Meanwhile he paid tribute to Senior DIG Director Shane Abeyratne and ASP Tesserae for being impartial and doing an excellent job.  

Judging from his experience he conclude that there is future for this country as average Sinhalese wanted to live in peace and with the racists who are dividing communities to the detriment of all and destroying the country. They were causing all the unrest in the country.

While accusing GMOA of being totally corrupt, he said that it is time steps are taken to restore the dignity of the noble medical profession.

    Dr. shafi Mohommad is very unhappy because of his ordeal for 47 days. Those Kochchikade Catholics have all forgotten that they lost their families and left them sad for their entire life. Some people lost their parents, husbands, mothers. That should be Allah’s wish for Infidels. YOur’s should be allah’s wish for believers. what a way to bemoaned. Good report card for islamic – empathy, compassion and kindness.

      JD, how can you justify falsely accusing and harassing a person because he happened to be moslem???? So Moslems don’t have rights because some bigots killed themselves with hundreds of innocents?

    Moslems fanatics and Jihadi ISIS inspired maniacs are funding medical professional like this man to carry out their will. Jihad can be fought in battle later when the Moslem population reaches the critical mass of around 40% in 2030. But for now it is important to wring the necks of the unborn Kaffir babies or better still make the Kaffir women barren.

    Investigate how he receive so much money to build a business empire and you will find the Jihadi maniacs hiding in the shadows. These monsters must be brought to justice. This man and others who violated the Hippocratic oath must be barred from practicing medicine for life and they should be put in permanent incarcerations for life. All Western embassies must be sent a folder with details of these barbarians so that they are aware of the evil that they have perpetrated on the Kaffir masses. The writer is trying to whitewash the monster, who put Dr. Mengele of Auschwitz to shame, and who has been responsible for multiple thousands of stillbirths, unwanted abortions, cajoling and hoodwinking Kaffir women to undergo medical monstrosities such as permanent barrenness brought about by surgery, etc. etc. Its a crying shame that Lankan leaders shirk from exercising the most stringent justice for crimes against humanity practiced by this Devil Doctor of Kurunegala. I heard some Lankans are taking the case to The Hague and I wish them the best of luck.

      Colombo Telegraph!
      How can you give publicity to such hate-filled and slanderous mouthings? This sick writer is not only persisting in accusing Dr Shafi of crimes which have been exposed as diabolical lies, but even calling for the murder of babies!
      J Chambers is a totally sick and uncivilized “human being”.
      Let him vent his spleen and stir up hatred and violence in some other country but please stop encouraging him to do this here — we dont need his kind adding fuel to the fire we have already on our hands. Surely his behaviour — incitement to violence — should be regarded as criminal and handled accordingly.

        That creature you mention is a paid troll. He/she has been trained to make these anti Muslim comments, to spread the hate and add to the anger against Muslims. No decent human being will write that way.
        You find these Hasbara trolls all over the world where Muslims are the minority. The same trolls that spread the hate in Myanmar on social media. After all certain countries benefit wherever there is violence against the Muslims, and are able to sell their weapons to those who want to use violence against the minority.

        He must be feeling inadequate at times hence he throws racist/childish tantrums in this forum.
        On the other hand he is being honest about his state of mind.

    This was a horror story, and there is enough of blame to go around. Firstly, the blame goes to these insecure, vicious colleagues, who unable to achieve the popularity of Dr. Shafi, and obviously racists deep down, plotted against this man, destroyed his life, family, and reputation. It must have hurt them to see this Muslim man work hard and do well, making them feel inadequate.
    How any educated human being can stoop to such low down gutter tactics is hard to understand.
    We should also blame those who arrested him, for rushing to judgement, with NO obvious evidence. When will they learn to stop believing the fake news being spread, about thousands of women being sterilized in a large hospital without their knowledge, charmed sweets, and gullies? Lastly lets not forget Divaina the publication that pushed the fake news to spread the hysteria, and cast a bad light on Muslims. They are not newspapers, they are stinking gossip rags that are poison to this country, as they lie and their racist agenda. They are taking advantage of the uneducated, naive, and ignorant people in this country, knowing they are ready to believe the BS they dish out.

    It is noted that Dr. Shafi’s family was involved in helping many people, including many Sinhalese people, like many other Muslims, who are never appreciated when anti Muslim problems arise. It would be interesting to know how much Professor Channa Jayasumana, Director Wirabandra, Deputy Director Chandana Kaendangamuwa,, and those who wasted their time plotting against Dr. Shafi helped their own people.
    They should be behind bars for lying and destroying a man this way. Shame on them.

    I agree with you 100%. He should claim billions from the news paper which hatched this plot. Dr. Shafi and his family deserves this for the mental trauma they underwent for no reason, and no-fault on the young doctor. It will be a good lesson for others not to get involved in such gutter and despicable work.

    CT, as a person without any communal, religious or social bias against Shafi, I submit the following purely in the interest of balance, without passing judgement on Shafi’s alleged racially based offences..
    /
    We need to remember that thoughthe noise on the case against Shafi is lessened, he has not been cleared of the charges. Analysis of the case against Shafi is continuing and there is a court order for evidence to be submitted in due course.
    /
    This is an outrageously, one-sided and untrue description of events relating to Shafi. Latheef’s representation on behalf of Shafi itself creates suspicions about the ‘communal’ basis of his alleged operations (pardon the pun!).
    /
    Would Lathief care to give CT readers a breakdown of Muslim-Sinhala ratio of “more than 30 medical students per annum” whom he claims Athugalpura Science Development Academy project produced.
    /
    It is well known that there is large scale dissatisfaction about the role the CID (Shani A and Tissera) played in harassing witnesses and Lathief’s praise of the CID suggests that the allegations have a basis.
    /
    The problem is, that a Sinhalese or a Tamil is unlikely to ‘stand up’ like this on behalf of another member of their ‘community’ on religious or ethnic basis . Why do Muslims always think differently to other minorities? this is the sort of discussion we need to have if we are serious about reconciliation, without continuing activities on ‘tribal’ basis..

      “Why do Muslims always think differently to other minorities? “
      Nipun Jayasekera:-
      This is because Muslims are allowed to do their Studies in the English Medium and are exposed to New Developments in the Rest of the World!
      Sinhalese and Tamils are disadvantaged because their Education is Restricted to what they are Taught, by Swabhasha Educated Teachers!!

    What is clear to a keen observer is that most of these incidents have political overtones and MR &Co, with their wealth and appointments during their mis-rule have managed to maintain control of the Polity. Unfortunately MS had his own agenda in all these matters., Therefore, the Government was ineffective in certain areas.

    I say nothing about the GMOA as their goals and intentions are crystal clear.

    If this Doctor is an aggrieved party, he should consider taking legal action against the offenders. But that may not be an easy task.

    Shafi stood for UNP and the opposing GMOA mafia were promoting the seat for Rajas. Mafia magnum repeated the same when Sajith’s helicopter was to land for election rally a few days ago into this so called “Halo Seat” of ‘ 7 galas’ where electricity failed in that region. May the lights go out in the evil GMOA so that real light of healing will return to their warped head, flowing into the body. Election monitors rightly stopped GMOA participation, but these lunatics are lawless and need hanging to protect society.

    All those started after Easter bomb blast. More than 300 killed and so many injured . Whether Shafi is innocent or not, what happened him was nothing. Still there is no proper investigation for Easter bomb blast. No investigations for Baudeen, Isabulla and others. Talk about that first.

      Why do you think these were false allegations? Who made that decision? Was the investigation completed satisfactorily? There is enough in this case to merit the intervention of a UN task force to look into carefully planned and perpetrated genocide on the Lankan Kaffir (non-Moslem) women. In my visits I have noticed that head to toe covered Moslem women are always accompanied by many kids, sometimes as much as two dozen, while obvious non-Moslem Kaffir women (Sinhalese, Tamil, and others) are usually with one or two kids. Does this happen voluntarily or are there physicians, who are bribed by Moslem Jihadis to limit by surgical means the number of kids they have.

      What needs to be tried in court is the Easter Sunday horror and how is was perpetrated as well as the methodical genocide and feticide practiced in Lanka against Kaffir kids.

      Pygmalion, Kurunegala seat belonged to Banda before he crossed over and formed SLFP. After that Kurunegala and SLFP were one. When Shafi on the ground or Sajith from a helicopter wants to set foot, the murderers will defend it for Jara. Hang the power thirsty GMOA head and send the money thirsty family to the bottomless pit, before they start amassing wealth for the appearing baby generation cycle.

    It is “well known secret” that, as in politics, “cut-throat” business second to none among academics. Therefore, jealousy against a rising competitor is nothing unusual. With the rising racism and the politically motivated highly corrupt GMOA’s determination for tight control over the profession, Dr Shafi was at a right place & right time to be a perfect victim. As soon as the story broke out, I predicted the likely hood of GMOA hand behind the story. But the news of involvement of the IGP was a shock. However, once the information came out showing that the IGP’s wife is also part of the same social group of hospital director, the sociology of bureaucracy and the related political links became very obvious.

    I believe that this incident is only one howl among many howling predatory wolves UNP Gvt had to work with. It is ironic that MY 3 who became the president with the help from ant-MaRa votes also became a member of the same predators. Wijedasa R was pulling the carpet underneath Ranil own feet while Ravi Waidyalankara, the head of the FCID, the institution formed specially to investigate financial crimes, was passing information secretly to the criminals. And, on top all these, president himself knowingly allowed the Easter bombing to take place creating an Islamaphobia as well as a sense of public insecurity, two factors standing in favor of the opposition.

    It is good if Dr Shafi is planning media conference to reveal his side of the story but at the same time, he must be very careful not to avoid any missteps b’cos, I’m certain that the “other side” is already planning their attack. Even if the planned media go as planned, it itself wouldn’t be sufficient unless he can get some backing from the Sinhalese community.

      ….continued.
      However, in the contest of racial hatred prevailing among extremists against minorities, I believe that Muslim political leaders must do more to encourage Muslim communities to develop a much more closer bonds with their neighbors so that they can have a sort of safety cushion against organized criminals from outside. Whole must be be proud to see the economic & political achievements in recent years by the Muslims. This is a real testament for vibrancy of SL democracy. This is a very good model to eradicate rural poverty of all ethnic background. Turning “left” as some so-called Muslim intellectuals are suggesting is not the correct answer.

    He can then be rewarded with at least the Statee Health Miniter job as compensation , along with the mega Bux Dr Shafi is entitled for wrongful custody..

    After reading this , he will be a perfect fit as the assistant to the best Health Minister in the World Dr Dentist Rajitha..

    This certainly looks to be a coverup to clean the shame game. There was even a leading Sinhala Media giving a fron page daily. Even a politico showed publicity and stopped a Sri Lankan person / body giving free meals to patients who come for treatment in few leading general hospitals and made a stop to it. Thare was also a Kottu Roti drama as well creation unreast and go scotfree. This is the state of these thugs who create communal problems. Its a shame that the former Minister of Justice openly now says that he was the person who stopped or delayed important vital cases. Certain;y the person who appointed him should be answerable and should retire and give room to another. The Bank Robery is one but you also should remember the Mig deal, Lasantha who got involved to, Go through Fredricas youtube clips how she was harresed, under what circumstances she was called by US Ambersadors advice for her to leave her own country which she did not know where she was heading to.

    Latheef Farook, This incident is was so pathetic, sad and hurtful, as a colleague of this doctor in medical profession. When this story was published here in CT I was was vociferous and did my best in explaining , this concocted , fake story with hidden racial and political agenda behind its origin. In my opinion though not much talked in social media GMOA, SLMC are few of the most virulent, anti national, racist mafia currently existing in Lanka. They are backed by corrupt politicians for their own political gains. The current bunch is fully backed and supported by the Rajapaksas for whom they are doing the bidding, like arranging strikes, protest shut down, SAITAM —-etc . In return they get favors, perks,influence and immunity from “low and odor”. The whole saga was fake , concocted and staged with the help of GMOA who maintained silence through out.A individual jealousy and hatred of a colleague was manipulated by sitting Kurunegala, MP none other than “mother of all crooks” MR for his brother to get elected. Easter helped to fodder and create the rumor which was in no time spread by their followers and rest is history. A innocent individual and his whole family (with small kids) life was in topsy- turvy within 24 hours and still struggling to pick the pieces , hoping to put back together one day. Their only mistake was to serve the poor and under served, when the so called GMOA mafia was swindling money in big cities from innocent patients and by licking the backs of crooked politicians.These SLPP animals, are the ones claiming to lead the nation to FUTURE ?? What it may be or look like is beyond imagination. Why should any educated minority stay and serve when the nation itself has failed them ????

    The Muslim community should take a careful decision in this coming presidential elections. There are some elements within the Muslim community become the pray of Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalism (majority of Sinhalese are not Fundamentalists). This fundamentalist group is very powerful and able to throw billions to buy some Muslim and Tamil thugs, criminals and some opportunistic politicians.Who was behind the arrest of Dr. Shafari? Who campaigned for the arrest of Muslim MPs Richard Badiudeen, and FormerEastern Provincial governor Hisbullah and Dr Shafari? It is BBS Ganarasa Thero, Rathna Thero and SLPP Weerawansa, Gammanpila and the GMOA President etc. Who are they working for? They are working for Presidential candidate Gotabaya. We all know who was behind the attack on Muslim’s mosque in Dambulla, who is behind the Muslim Hotel mixing of power to reduce Sinhala women pregnancy and other violences?
    Muslims should stand together to expose the Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalism and save the country fall into the hands of Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalism and save the Sinhalese people who wants to live peacefully.

    While it is true that Sinhalese have jealousy of minorities and dont want them to thrive. This does not mean muslims on the island are an innocent people. It is now clear for all to see that they want to turn Sri Lanka into an arab state.
    Sterilization tactics were first developed and used by western intelligence like the CIA but some arabs got hold of these tools. Now they are giving them to muslims in various ‘infidel’ nations to reduce the population growth of ‘infidels’ so muslims can take over faster.
    The sinhalese didnt figure this out for themselves. Some foreign intelligence observing the behaviour of arabs/muslims world wide have informed the sinhalese ruling classes. They then passed on the info to the BBS who then went around in public making noise about it. I cant say for certain if Shafi is innocent or not. But i am more than willing to bet that some muslims on the island have been sterilizing other communities.

Dude, there is no medical or scientific reasoning behind this stupid accusation. GOT IT. If not please refrain from voting, because of lacking mental capacity to make informed consent. If you did not understand the last sentence, please get someone to explain. If Latheef wrote you say he is biased(Muslim). What about Grusha ANDREWS (to me sounds non Muslim) and others who wrote on this matter. Looks like after seeing the name Latheef Farook, your brain froze and refused to read any further. God Save Lanka.

    This is a plea is to the whole Muslim Community. This whole saga should be good enough for each every one of you to ponder in good faith, before exercising your votes. The Shaffi family, we are discussing here is well educated and fairly influential. If they are put in such helpless, hopeless and worthless situation, then trust me none of you are immune from facing it. I personally know few Tamils in Colombo,during riots , who kept saying ” I am so and so” or “I know so many influential people” and did not heed to their common sense, later paid heavily for their blind sense of security. Leave what your political crooks may say (even they are not safe anymore , we saw how the mobs were baying for their blood) , leave what others say (including threats and intimidation by Rajapaksa mouth piece), just think for your self and do the right thing. Every vote you cast does not decide your fate but the fate of whole community. Until now like most of us, you were guided by your own crooks, but now is he time for “YOUR OWN CALLING” and if you fail , its not just you but failing your family, friends and your community.

      ——–I personally know few Tamils in Colombo,during riots , who kept saying ” I am so and so” or “I know so many influential people”———————–

      I fully agree with this. People with lots of Money should especially be careful.

      ——Every vote you cast does not decide your fate but the fate of whole community.—–

      Disagreed. Shafi was arrested during this government. Not when a Rajapaksa was in power. So, I am thinking no matter who wins this will continue. And don’t ever forget. The UNP is pro-Israel while the Rajapaksas are renowned Palestine supporters. Don’t also forget, the last Pogrom occurred under a UNP government.

      So place your bets accordingly.

        “The UNP is pro-Israel while the Rajapaksas are renowned Palestine supporters.”
        I don’t agree with above statement. You may not know Israel helped Rajapakse government during this war. USA helped Srilanka during this war with supplying information about LTTE ships. The left movement in Srilanka always supported Palestines. I was an SLFP supporter but not now under Rajapakse family. SLFP was considered as a left wing but not now. Rajapakse got all the benefits from SLFP and now destroyed it. There is no difference between SLFP and UNP in terms of Tamils. Yes both UNP and SLFP played same tactics (Racism) and pogroms alternatively. However, UNP agreed by force to find a political solution and brought the 13th amendment but SLFP, particularly Rajapakse went against it. We should also do not forget that both SLFP and UNP massacred ordinary Sinhalese alternatively in mass scale. Buddhist Fundamentalism never bother whether it is Sinhala or Tamil or Muslims when it is necessary for them.

          ajith,

          USA and Israel helped the Rajapaksa govt. because the LTTE was becoming a nuisance to everybody. Like a typical Tamil prick misbehaving in public, the LTTE was misbehaving at the world stage and the world which had at first been sympathetic to their sob stories was now realizing what they really were.
          Also, govt to govt help is common.

          As for the JVP, I don’t blame the UNP govt. one bit for breaking the JVP. The JVPers were terrorists themselves. You don’t take arms against the govt. and expect to walk in peace Mister. The security forces are there to take care of that.

            When you say security forces are there to take care of terrorists do they function as slaves of Presidents and Prime Ministers and also based on their races? You agree that the government to government is common. Then it is common to UNP to support the Israel government against Palestine Terrorists. Is it wrong?

    Remember , Dr. Pandeniya ( what ever the shithead is called) , GMOA president who came up with a screening method to weed out anti Rajapaksa supporters. Then we have a religious shit head wanting “Gotha to rule like Hitler”, Ranjith the official lackey of Rajapaksa family who vehemently denied any kind of abuse, until last Easter (I hear Gotha recently took the liberty of writing a official letter on his behalf, but given this shit heads past anything is possible ) . Ali Sabrey, PC,Esq is intimidating and threatening his own community. These are some of “our leading lights towards brighter future”. What a true SHIT HOLE we are living in.

    At least Dr Shafi can get himself released from Prison and then start suing the Hospital, the govt., the Town of Kurunegala and every Sinhalese along his path.

    But unfortunately the victims of April 21st bombings cannot do the same. They are already dead and have no second chance. They are already buried and forgotten. Plants have grown on the soil they were buried on.

    The word on the street is that police has bungled up the case due to pressure from Muslim politicians. His victims are trying to rebuild their lives and move on, but no compensation. If he goes ahead with press conference, the ‘old wounds’ of thousand plus victims will reopen.

      What ridiculous NONSENSE you persist in, John! Thank goodness voices of sanity seem to be in the majority here, in response to the article. If only they were representative of the wider opinion in the country. Alas, I am too pessimistic to believe in that.

    Doctors with respect in fairness to this noble profession should dissociate from from this stinking disgraceful organization with racial links. Already general public does not show the respect for the doctors in away it was a few decades back. Otherwise they should get together to throw away the political clowns.

    Out of Thousands of abortions how many were muslims ?. That is the important point. But, because of Politics, Dr Shafi will not be prosecuted. It is not because of the muslim public but because of the muslim politicians who are waiting to exploit Muslims.
