Kurunegala Hospital Sterilization Fiasco – Rajitha Confident Investigations Will Reveal The Truth, GMOA Contradicts!

Situation surrounding allegations of ‘sterilization’ procedures performed by Dr. Seigu Shiyabdeen Mohammed Shafi of Kurunegala Teaching Hospital turned murkier as hospital authorities said over 51 complaints have been lodged so far , by patients who believe they were subjected to a sterilization procedure by the doctor in question, without consultation or consent, while Health Minister cast doubts over the allegations, noting as per his knowledge, a sterilization procedure cannot be performed without many other staffers witnessing the procedure.

Rajah Senaratne – Minister of Health

Truth seemed far from the surface, as Health Minister Rajitha and the Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) also locked horns over the issue.

Although Health Minister Rajitha Senarathne expressed confidence on truth coming to light through the investigation launched into the allegations by the Criminal Investigation Department and his Ministry, GMOA says they have no confidence in the MoH investigation as they believe political interferences will be made into the matter.

“The GMOA branch of the Kurunegala teaching hospital convened and unanimously decided that they can’t do not have any confidence in an investigation led by Health Ministry. Therefore we decided not to accept the results of the Ministry inquiry,” GMOA Secretary Dr. Naveen De Soysa said.

Meanwhile Minister Senarathne seemed visibly upset as the media grilled him over allegations levelled against Dr. Shiyabdeen as he retorted at media saying, “You all would not have these concerns if this doctor was a Sinhalese! Since the doctor is a Muslim you have an issue…” he told the journalists at the presser yesterday.

Meanwhile, TV news also featured comments by patients who had visited the Kurunegala Teaching hospital to lodge complaints against the Dr. Shiyabdeen. Interestingly, most patients said their baby was delivered by Dr. Shiyabdeen and since then, although they tried to conceive they have faced issues and that is why they now believe Dr. Shiyabdeen may have performed sterilization procedures on them without consent.

Although confirming these fears are up to medical professionals and experts, it also appears the media hype over the issue has now trickled into a potential situation of mass hysteria in the area.

Dr. Shiyabdeen was arrested last week, to be questioned over a complaint received regarding his wealth and assets earned via dubious means. However, it was around the same time that ultra nationalist daily, Divaina ran a lead story regarding a doctor who sterilizes Sinhalese mothers without their consent.

      Not just Rajitha S but anyone with sanity would not buy the blatant lie – the aforementioned surgeon to have made over 8000 of patients infertile following the cesaerian OPs. The fact s say that surgeon is not the only person to be in thiat OP theatre. carrying out the OPs. It is a team work. And just a CT scan prove if those hand-picked patients were subjected to arbitory mistreatements by muslim surgeon.
      :
      I fully agree with Minister, that the panel of investigators will find that the alleged doctor is innocient in that allegations.
      :
      I would also like to request to investigate all the surgeons that perform such OPs within the country and see, if there is an effect of the procedure that damage those patients not allowing them be conceived again.
      :
      Most ridiculous thing is, NOT lay people but some special monks, being ETERNALLY loyal to Rajaakshe camp make every effort to talk the FACTs about the OPs and allegedly infertile tactics of the surgeon.
      .
      All these news are HEADLINE capturing for the GRASS EATERS dominated SRILANKA but entire word point the finger at us, we should really be ASHAMED to be SINHALAYAS

      What a stupid question and stupid Thambi attempt to glorify it!
      /
      Why would a Sinhalese doctor do such an animalistic thing? Thambi schemes are very very sinister.

    Raajitha is bullshitting. He was asking Muslims help to go to elections. I do not know whether the media asked RAajitha, how come he knew that Zaharan brother who broke fingers after testing some bombs lost his fingers and was hospitalized in a private hospital and a muslims doctor looked after him. Raajitha was informed but he kept quiet. Certain Press talks Rajitha do certainly says Raajitha is scared to Rishad Bathiuddin and his Handler. Rajitha also had gone to boston and had said, he would nto mind if he were told that that he was called Raajitha Mohommad. It is in media, I think a video. Even Sarath Fonseka is preying to Rishad Bathiuddin and sing songs for Rishad. Ashu Marasinghe is watching Sarath Fonseka. Daya Gamage is very close to the President. He did not like when champika Ranawaka crossed to UNP. He was fighting.

    We are beginning to look like village idiots in this country. These rumors spread by mean people for their own evil agenda’s is dangerous, and can hard the reputation of good people forever. Intelligent people should ask, how can thousands of women be “sterilized” with no other members of the nursing staff knowing, complaining, or reporting to the authorities. This particular doctor is supposedly running for public office, and it could be a political foe, or an envious rat, who started these accusations.
    IF THE INVESTIGATIONS REVEAL THAT HE IS INNOCENT OF THESE CHARGES, THE CID MUST FIND OUT WHO STARTED THESE FALSE ACCUSATIONS, AND CHARGE THEM. We have to stop these false accusations by punishing those who start the false rumors and accusation, or else this will go on. It is the only way.

    If Sterilization by Muslim doctor in Kurunegala and Peradeniya is true it violated the medical ethics. SLFP is responsible for it as Badurdeen Mohamed introduced standardization policy to help mulsim students who got poor grades to enter medical college. The intelligent student did not get the opportunity to get onto medical college. Many Tamil and some Singhalese excellent doctors migrated. What was left are the students who entered medical college through the backdoor. What ethics do you expect from them? The government is paying for sins. The strategy of ISIs is to reduce Singhal population less than 70% and increase the muslim population by having a maximum of 4 wifes

      PON!
      Medical ethics has not only violated by Dr. Shiabdeen. Every other specialist and consultants violates Medical Ethics in one way or the other. Unnecessary Medical tests, exorbitant charges from patients in addition to their salaries, repeated examination of of the patience, without real necessity or due to their inefficiency ,admission of patience in private hospitals to earn money for( hospitals as well as for doctors) are also devoid of medical ethics.
      It is said that DR.Shiabdeen wealth centres around 400 million rupees. Why don’t the government check the earnings of the other doctors and ascertain their wealth as well along with other MP’s and ministers (present/former) particularly of Rishad, Hisbulla,and Sambanthan and Rajitha. Last but not least the former/present
      presidents. This would penetrate the ‘abortive’ attempts made to hide their earnings. .

      Pon, if you think 1971 Badiurdeen’s ‘standardisation’ was bad, you have to read about the current Z score devised by a Man called Thattil./
      /
      You go to any university in Sri Lanka and you will find 60-70% Muslim s compared to 1-2 % in the seventies. Medicine and Law which were never their favourites (as opposed to gem trading and other middle man jobs), today they are significantly ruling these professions./

      All these things have happened while the country was asleep after celebrating the 30 year war,it looks like.

    How many surgeries of sterilisation can a Gynecologist perform in a week? Even if a surgeon does one a day, 5 days a week, he can do a maximum of 260 surgeries in a year. To perform 8000 surgeries as alleged, it would take more than 30 years!

    The accused surgeon is Only 42 years old which means, he should have started when he was 12 years old!

    It also means that he carried out ONLY sterilisation surgeries and that too Exclusively on Sinhala women!!

    How to call this Allegation against the Doctor? Those who make such Allegation and those who take it seriously, NEED Treatment at Angoda.Urgently.

    Ha..ha…another issue for Retard and Blind Eagle. These women must go and try with Muslims and then watch whether they get pregnant or not. Their swamiyas are not doing the job properly or drunk in alcohol and not interested in sex. First let GMOA and Gnanasara to treat the swamiyas for their impotence and alcohol and drug addiction before blaming the Muslim doctor. Even these women can go to their near by Pansalas and I can assure them that they will become pregnant in no time.

    Minister is perfect in his stand. It is very professional and rational. Who cares about the dirty Divaina pathara that caters to fools. GMOA is another curse for SL and in fact worse than some of the racist organisations. They dont believe any one. So whom will they believe? Will they believe Gnanasra? Or bring foreign experts? Minister must stand firmly on this non sense. All we need is the truth. If the doctor found innocent he must be adequately compensated by the government. If he is innocent then it will be one of the most heinous crimes against humanity. Also find out the others responsible. We all know that doctors are mostly sharks and blood sucking bats and they belong to all races and religions. I have seen dirty doctors among sinhalese, tamils, Muslims, buddhists, Hindus, Christians. I remember about a very “Pious Buddhist” Surgeon in Kurnegala and one he visited a well known buddhist Priest and the guy got chased out by the priest because he was a rouge and a bribe taker. So many in this field are greedy pigs and heartless souls who survive on unfortunate humans who fall sick. It is a shame that the so-called noble profession had fallen into the hands of the evils. As mentioned already, the so-called standardisation (media wise and regional)led to guys entering from backgrounds without any moral or valued background and they suffered partly from identity crisis and greed for money to quickly change their identity. Contrary to what was believed, many who came from “poor background” did not care for the poor but instead wanted to change their identity. GMOA even blocked the NCMC that was catering to capable students with merit who were deprived by standardisation. many of them became very good doctors and sadly many left the country. Badurdeen and Sirima had to get the blame for their racism and cheap political gain by sacrificing the profession. Now we the end result.

    This incident should be investigated and the Dr should be punished if he found guilty. There are no other opinions in that. Yet why there is no legal action against Divaina editor who wrote this news without any fact and made a threat to communal harmony? If he can write 4000 victims are there, then he should be able to give the list of the victim rather requesting them to come forward to complain.

    Sri Lanka is a country with gossip mongers and can create any blatant lies to get political or any other advantage. These GMOA guys seems to be lost their credibility due to lack if professionalism, Integrity and inclination to some political parties. At least they should stand by their professional till this guy is guilty of said wrongful act. GMOA is a disgrace to whole profession and seems GOMA than GMOA.

    What is amazing to me is this.

    This story of this doctor performing illegal sterilization procedures suddenly surfaces NOW, when all eyes are on anything Muslim: namely, Muslims women’s attire, Muslim politicians, Muslim businessman, businesses owned by Muslims, Muslim dietary laws, Muslim schools – religious as well as elementary and secondary, etc.

    This seems like, Paranoia.

    A cesarean is performed in the operating theater with anesthesiologists, nurses, nurses aides, and a whole host of people around besides the surgeon performing the surgery.

    This story has taken a life of its own, as if the surgeon allegedly performed non-consensual procedures secretly with the ulterior motive of making Sinhala women sterile.

    And Sinhala women are lining up adding their names to a list of women claiming they were victims.

    What a cock and bull story it is!

    The brainless are swallowing this story – hook, line and sinker!
    Welcome to the Paradise of Modayas!!

    As long as there are blind morons to believe there will be such trash news papers, politicians, clergy and rumour mongers. The newspaper ought to be sued for damages after the inquiry. But in a land like any other will that happen being the victim a minority? Just see where the so called natives have ended up. By their own phobia and paranoia they are not believing their own kinds investigating this doctor. The GMOA fools out of all wants Gamarala the universal liar to investigate, what a joke. Can anyone salvage our pathetic country?

    Naive liar Rajitha is expecting the world to believe his Sinhala Jury only investigation’s results. What a comedy! New King accepted that Health Ministry is the worst ministry in the country from his time. Nations ’sick patients’ hospitals have been converted to Hotel Hospital to grant impunity to the worst criminals in the land. Kilinochchi Hospital was a famous center for forceful womb removal after Rapist Army raping in large scale. Doctors refused to talk about that. When Tamil girls were forcefully recruited by the Rapist army for serve Sinhala men, many were tortured inside the camps and kept forcefully in Kilinochchi and Trinco hospitals preventing parents and lawyers access. Tamilini many rebels were suspected have been poison fed and falsely treated to kill them. Nirmalaruban was tortured to death inside the Anuradhapura hospital. The worst violent union in the land is GMOA, Rajitha did nothing to that. Rajitha’s son is accused for long time doing his private business on hospital supplies. It was Lankawe’s Doctor kept Thajudeen’ body parts, after government defense service tortured and murdered. With name of free health service, the health ministry is the world’s largest racketeering cartel organization. After all, MPs and ministers go to Singapore hospitals to take aspirin for their head.
    Now all these criminals are comparing injustice they did to LTTE to get impunity to save the terrorists who are in the parliament and senior offices. But still none of these dogs are ready to utter a word to ask the New King comedian to release all the falsely accused and arrested Tamils.
    If somebody find a way to fix health ministry, that day Lankawe Rapist Army Police violence will be stopped.
    Please somebody tell the sweet liar to “Go to hell”.

    As per medical experts & University dons That sterilization can be performed with 80% success without knowledge of the nurses present in the operation theater by concern doctor.Just touching hard for few second Mother’s Fallopian tubes. As such no escape for this fanatic doctor. As per some mothers even if natural delivery was possible by force this lunatic Muslim doctor taken mothers to operation theater for cesarean delivery. That means This Muslim Doctor conspired to do sterilization on mothers after first or second delivery. That is a plot to massacre of Sinhalese future generations & curtailment of Sinhalese population growth. It is reported that this process started by Muslim doctors way back in 1996 in peradeniya teaching hospital. One lady doctor involved still missing & another doctor escaped to Australia. These traitor’s ancestors given shelter by our kotte kingdom. Otherwise might have drown in north Sumathra sea due to Tsunami waves.Now enough is enough These lot should be chased out. First have to start boycotting their businesses.Money earn as profits out of Sinhalese Hard earned money utilized to destroy Sinhalese as a nation.Their Koran says it very clearly.

    Ranjith the rumor monger. Who are those medical experts and university dons, give names or take a hike. Didnt you burn down a outlet store within few days after spreading sterile sweets story. Didnt you demolish a eatery within hours after spreading sterile pills story. You for one has been spreading this for some time expecting to create more hatred, disharmony ,persecution and violence. And you expect us to believe thousand of moms who were deceived of having a child , did not raise even a murmur for years. Didnt you also create Black July to murder hundreds of innocent Tamils.?????

    Moda Ranjith why don’t you comment on something you know of instead of just barking randomly. Talk on facts man. We are not discussing about Mahavamsa but about some medical facts. This is not a gossip column. Who told you that touching the Fallopian tube will make the woman infertile? Is itGnanasara or Weeramonkey? Be sensible man and let them investigate. Don’t jump like a monkey. The issue is whether there are unbiased doctors to conduct this investigation. Only option is to invite foreign experts. Even judges and AG department officials are censured because of naked racism. So what is next. Rathana. Wants that and you want this and where do we end up.
