Doctor's racism claim alarming
THE CLAIMS of racism made by a Pakistani doctor in today's Herald are worrying. Syed Kamran Haider Bukhari, who works as a junior doctor in Drogheda, alleges he was racially abused, and kicked and punched as he socialised at a disco this week.
Worse still, when he complained to staff, he says he was laughed at.
Dr Bukhari says he is now considering leaving the country. Racism is unacceptable in our society and a full investigation must be held.
