A Muslim doctor is facing serious charges after he decided to sterilize non-Muslim women on his operating table.
His female patients were not asked or notified about his permanently life-altering procedures.
The news and opinion website Caldronpool reported more than 50 women have made complaints against Dr. Siyabdeen Mohammed Safi.
The 42-year-old worked at Kurunegala Hospital in Sri Lanka.
“Some of the women have accused the doctor of sterilizing them during a standard Caesarean procedure,” the site reported.
Also, there were reports that thousands of women also may have “unknowingly undergone the procedure known as tubal ligation,” which involves sealing the fallopian tubes to prevent fertilized eggs from reaching the uterus for implantation.
Sri Lankan authorities arrested the surgeon. Large amounts of cash were found on his person. Police suspect his wealth came from terrorist groups.
