Chief Justice Islamabad High Court Justice Athar Minallah said that the Ministry of Health is playing with the court and the general public.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has heard a case regarding non-issuance of pending orders of doctors due to corona virus.
Counsel for the petitioner said that the section officer in the Ministry of Health is at the top, he handles all matters.
Chief Justice Islamabad High Court Justice Athar Minallah expressed anger over the non-issuance of the order and directed the Health Secretary to appear before the court on June 12.
Justice Athar Minallah remarked that doctors are risking their lives at the moment, why are you disturbing doctors in Corona’s situation?
He said that the Ministry of Health was playing games with the court and the general public, adding that the attitude of the Ministry of Health was unserious even in the case of corona virus and in exceptional circumstances.
The Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court remarked that doctors are front line soldiers fighting Corona, the whole world is saluting their doctors, here the Ministry of Health is forcing doctors to go round the courts.
The representative of PIMS Hospital said that I should also be given an opportunity to say something, to which Justice Athar Minallah said that it is not your fault, it is the fault of the Ministry of Health.
The Chief Justice said that the court refrained from ruling in the cases of doctors so that they would not be disturbed.
