Following the attack on the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) in Lahore, lawyers in Karachi issued threats to doctors on Saturday.
In a video that was circulated in the media, lawyers can be seen hurling threats at doctors in Karachi.
“We support what the lawyers did in Lahore, we will do the same,” the lawyers can be heard saying in the video.
“Lawyers across the country are united, this country was built by lawyers not doctors,” they said.
Singling out the doctors of Jinnah Hospital, Karachi, the lawyers said that they would not spare them and teach them a lesson if they chose to act against them.
It is worth mentioning here that on Wednesday, at least three patients lost their lives and several others were injured after a mob of disgruntled lawyers stormed the Punjab Institute of Cardiology, ransacked the hospital wards and operation theatres and tortured the staff and visitors
