Journal editorial

It may be the editorial policy of the medical journal, The Lancet, to comment on policy that harms people’s health (OpEd page, “Recognising fair criticism”, August 21). But the hope is that it should be consistent and fair. In this connection, one would like to know whether the journal made similar observations on the plight of Kashmiri Pandits who were evicted forcibly from Kashmir. Was their plight any less? They too must have been under severe stress.

The reach of high impact journals such as The Lancet cannot be disputed. It is puzzling how the medical fraternity in India completely missed the fact about the journal’s policy. The virus of intolerance is spreading in India. Unfortunately, medical practitioners have fallen victim this time.
