Bengaluru: A government hospital doctor has been booked after he forced a woman, belonging to Muslim community, to chant “Krishna Krishna”.

The incident happened on Tuesday at government hospital in Chintamani where tubectomy surgery camp was held.

The victim named Naseema Banu in her complaint to the police alleged that the accused doctor performing the surgery asked the women to chant Krishna’s name before the minor surgery.

Naseema, a Bengaluru resident already has two daughters and therefore decided to go for the birth control surgery. She enrolled her name in the monthly programme of female sterilisation in the Chintamani Government Hospital.

In the complaint, Naseema had stated, “I was asked to come for the surgery at 1 pm. The doctors operating on women were asking the patients to chant Krishna Krishna while being operated. As I was a Muslim, I started saying, Allah Allah, to which the doctors objected. I tried to convince them saying I am a Muslim and I cannot chant Krishna’s name, but the doctors refused to accept my explanation,” reported Deccan Chronicle.

He even threatened that he would not perform the tubectomy surgery if she refused to do so and was forced to chant Krishna, against her religious beliefs, she added.

After the surgery, Naseema lodged a complaint at Chintamani city police station against the accused the doctor Ramakrishna of “hurting” her religious sentiments.
