Leading gastroenterologist and liver surgeon Dr Saad Khalid Niaz has returned the medal.
Medal of Distinction is being returned to the Government of Pakistan by Dr. Saad Khalid Niaz in protest.
Dr. Saad Khalid Niaz has written a letter to President Arif Alvi to return the Medal of Distinction, in which he says that he is deeply disappointed that the services of the medical staff have not been officially appreciated this year.
Dr. Saad Khalid Niaz wrote in his letter that I had only requested the recognition of the services of the medical staff, the services of the Corona Heroes.
Dr. Saad Khalid Niaz further said in his letter that only two doctors from Sindh have been given civil awards this year. The 124 recipients of civil awards did not belong to the medical department in any way.
“I return the Medal of Distinction in 2013 for not acknowledging the services of the medical staff,” he said.
Dr. Saad Khalid Niaz’s letter to the President of Pakistan has been asked that I am returning the award on behalf of thousands of medical personnel of the country, tell me how to send you the Medal of Distinction.
