Rawalpindi:The female students of Rawalpindi Medical College (RMC) took out a protest rally here on Wednesday in favour of their recently-ousted principal and in-charge allied hospitals Professor Dr. Mohammad Mussadiq Khan.
The students, nearly 300 in number, carried placards urging the Punjab government to reinstate Dr. Mussadiq.
They marched from the Rawalpindi Medical College to Liaquat Bagh and staged a demonstration on Benazir Bhutto Road. They raised slogans in favour of the ousted principal who had also been serving as professor of surgery at the RMC.
Dr. Mussadiq has been removed from his post after a secretary-level inquiry conducted into a number of corruption cases came to light at the RMC and allied hospitals during last few months. The protesters blocked traffic on Benazir Bhutto Road for about one hour.
Talking to ‘The News,’ the protesters said that the Punjab government should take its decision back and restore Dr. Mohammad Mussadiq Khan, as he was not involved in any corruption.
“It is only a propaganda against him. Dr. Mussadiq was performing his duty responsibly,” the protesters said and added that no one could prove these allegations against him.
On the occasion, the protesters announced complete boycott of their classes in till the restoration of Dr. Mussadiq. They said that they would stage protests daily outside the Rawalpindi Medical College till his reinstatement by the provincial government.The news
