On September 21, Russian Dermatologist Vladimir Zhernokleev was attacked and beaten at a private medical clinic in Nizhnevartovsk by a Muslim man after examining his sharia-adherent wife. The 29-year-old Islamic husband was enraged that parts of his wife’s body were exposed to another man.
The day began as usual for Dr. Zhernokleev, who was examining patients. In the afternoon, a Muslim girl came to him for a medical examination. At first, the hijab-wearing woman did not want to be examined by a male doctor. Dr. Zhernokleev advised her to speak to management and request a female doctor. However, the Muslim woman wanted to proceed with Dr. Nizhnevartovsk.
During the woman’s exam, the Doctor looked over the woman’s hands, legs, and abdomen. Fifteen minutes later, the woman’s husband burst into the Doctor’s office and started beating the Doctor. Watch the following video of the violent attack:
Russian police arrived five minutes after the attack. The doctor was already severely beaten. An ambulance was called to take care of Zhirnokleev’s injuries. The doctor suffered a head injury and a broken nose.
Dr. Zhirnokleev is shocked by what happened, mainly since he had previously dealt with patients in hijabs. However, according to the Doctor, this was the first time he ever experienced such a reaction from an Islamic husband.
Police have opened a criminal case against the Muslim attacker. He faces up to five years in prison.
Sharia-adherent Muslims Can Not Integrate
Like many who are unfamiliar with Islam and Sharia, the doctor does not realize that Muslim women are prohibited from exposing body parts to male doctors, especially during childbirth.
Under Islamic law, women are not even permitted to visit doctors without their male guardians. Male guardians can only be the next of kin in Islam; sons, grandsons, husbands, brothers, fathers, or uncles.
In hospitals throughout Europe, Muslims have been increasingly asking to be treated by Muslim doctors only and refusing to let male doctors treat their wives. In America, a government medical agency issued strict instructions for Doctors treating Muslim women:
…minimize eye and physical contact between a healthcare worker and a patient of the opposite gender when possible. Furthermore, male doctors may have to communicate through a spouse if the patient is female. For example, if a male healthcare professional is talking to or asking questions of a female patient while her partner is in the room, but the patient does not respond, the healthcare professional should ask the patient if she would prefer he talk to the partner. This may clear up any confusion and is usually not offensive.
Doctors who treat Muslim patients are putting their lives at risk. If medical professionals violate Sharia, the consequence could be deadly. It increasingly appears that non-Muslims, like the Russian Doctor, will have to integrate into Islamic culture and laws to be safe.
The west is told to embrace multiculturalism & respect each other’s beliefs, ideals & values. However, Islam does not reciprocate. Multiculturalism simply means that the most tolerant culture must submit to the least tolerant culture.
