Christian Patient Dies After Three Muslim Doctors Allegedly Refuse To Touch Him – “He Was ‘Napaak (Unclean)”!!

Irfan Masih, a Christian who lives in Pakistan, was cleaning a manhole when the toxic fumes proved overwhelming and he needed to go to a hospital.

But the doctors wouldn’t help him because he was unclean, they were Muslims, and it was Ramadan.

Read the full story as reported by CBN:

A Pakistani Christian sewage worker died after three Muslim doctors refused to touch him because they were fasting for Ramadan.

Irfan Masih fell unconscious after being exposed to toxic fumes while cleaning a manhole.

His brother rushed him to the hospital for treatment, but was shocked when three Muslim doctors reportedly refused to even touch him.

“The doctors refused to treat him because they were fasting and said my son was ‘napaak (unclean),'” Irshad Masih, his mother, told Pakistan’s Express Tribune.

Muslims around the world are fasting for the month of Ramadan and are abstaining from eating, drinking, or touching unclean things from sunrise to sunset. However, many Muslim medical professionals still uphold their Hippocratic Oath and treat ailing patients.

Pervez Masih, the victim’s brother, told the Tribune that he cleaned his brother’s body in hopes that the doctors would treat him. When he was finally clean the doctors gave him oxygen but it was too late.

Authorities got involved after the Masih family protested Irfan’s death.

“An inquiry team is being constituted to investigate the case. If the municipal officers or doctors are found to be involved … the government will take action,” an official told Pakistani media.

Conclusion

First of all, let’s admit these doctors are anomalies. I can’t imagine most Muslim doctors would let a patient die regardless of religious beliefs or what time of year it was.

But the whole situation (assuming we can believe the story) has the wrong framing. At CBN News, the headline was “Christian Man Dies After Three Muslim Doctors Refuse to Touch Him.” That seems backwards. It suggests the Christian was the victim.

He is, no doubt, but here’s a question for CBN and their followers: How come when Muslim doctors refuse to help a patient due to their religious beliefs, we’re supposed to condemn it… but when Christian doctors refuse to serve gay customers due to their religious beliefs, we’re supposed to respect (and celebrate?) their religious liberties?

Does religious freedom only matter when Christians are discriminating against other people?
