Ahmedabad: With Hindus feeling insecure in Pakistan due to fundamentalist upsurge, over 20 Hindu doctors have so far migrated from Sindh province to Gujarat since last year.
This is the largest migration of medical professionals to Gujarat.
During the past four decades, 64 doctors have migrated to the safe haven of Gujarat from Pakistan, mostly from the Sindh province, and registered with the Gujarat Medical Council.
Sources say the number of doctors who have migrated but not yet registered could be much higher.
Most of these doctors have completed their MBBS from the Sindh University.
These doctors have left behind a thriving practice after they were haunted out by the terror organizations in Pakistan.
Says Dr Kailash Kumar Maheshwari, who was forced to give up his home in Pakistan: "I migrated with my family to Ahmedabad in 1998. I had completed my MBBS degree. The situation in Sindh is not conducive for Hindus"
