KARACHI: A 10-month-old girl died on Wednesday when her family was unable to enter Civil hospital due to security measures in place for the arrival of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and other leaders.

Bisma, a resident of Gabol Park in Lyari, was suffering from measles and had a high fever when her father, Faisal, brought her to the hospital. He arrived at the trauma centre entrance, which was manned by security officials for the arrival of Bilawal, Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah and others.

Faisal said the security officers deployed on the road stopped him from using the gate even after he argued for some time. By the time he walked around the premises to arrive at the second entrance to the emergency ward, Bisma’s condition had deteriorated.

The doctors told him that she was dead and that her life could have been saved had she been brought in on time. “The doctors believed that she could have survived if I had reached at least 15 minutes earlier,” Faisal sobbed in front of television cameras as he held her lifeless body. VIP protocol took away her life, he said.

Karachi show: Rulers must learn from history, says Bilawal

According to Civil hospital management, the door that Faisal was trying to enter from was for the trauma centre. “All other doors were open,” said the medical superintendent, Dr Saeed Ahmed Qureshi. The main emergency gate and the Baba-e-Urdu Road gate were open for public, he added.

Dr Qureshi clarified that the security officers deployed at the gates were not theirs. The hospital management does not close doors on patients at any time, he said.

Later, neighbours and family members reached Faisal’s house in Lyari to offer condolences. The victim was laid to rest in the evening. When CM’s adviser Nadia Gabol visited the family to apologise on behalf of her party’s leadership, she was met with hostility. Angry residents shouted slogans of ‘Go Nadia, Go’ and ‘Go PPP leadership, Go’.

Backlash against PPP

If the PPP leadership had planned to redeem themselves by inaugurating the trauma centre on Wednesday, their plans quickly went out the window as the party faced severe backlash from other politicians and the media.

I will not abandon ZAB’s struggle, says Bilawal

What made matters worse was senior minister Nisar Khuhro claiming that Bilawal’s security was more important to them. The security measures were taken given the threats to the PPP chairperson who has already lost his mother and senior leaders to terrorist attacks, he said. “The chief minister always has protocol but Bilawal’s security is more important to us,” he said.

Bilawal House also issued a statement clarifying that Bilawal’s visit did not cause any traffic jams and that his visit merely lasted 20 minutes.

Bilawal did, however, order an impartial inquiry into the death and asked for the findings to be made public. His father and PPP co-chairperson, Asif Ali Zardari, also issued a statement asking the government to probe the matter. “The lives of people living in Sindh and other parts of Pakistan are precious,” he said. “We are very saddened on the death of the baby girl.”

The chief minister also ordered commissioner Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui to start an impartial inquiry. Shah also met Bisma’s father on Wednesday evening and a CM House spokesperson said he will announce compensation for the family.

On the other hand, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement announced that it will move a resolution in the Sindh Assembly. “We have always opposed the VIP culture in the name of security and will raise this issue in next session of the assembly,” said opposition leader in Sindh Assembly, Khawaja Izharul Hasan.

Emergency services: Bilawal, CM inaugurate trauma centre

Pakistan Peoples Party chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah inaugurated Shaheed Mohtaram Benazir Bhutto Trauma Centre at Civil hospital on Wednesday.

Only Bhuttos are saviours of Sindh, says Bilawal

The fully integrated, 500-bed facility considered level one trauma centre was under construction since 2009. “The centre will be functional by mid-February next year,” said Civil hospital medical superintendent Dr Saeed Ahmed Qureshi, adding that the 16-storey centre needs human resources. There are three floors for parking and five floors will be used for clinical purposes. “We’ll make it functional soon.”

The trauma centre will be funded by grants allocated by the Sindh government and will provide free treatment similar to Civil hospital. “The concept of establishing trauma centres is new in Pakistan,” said Dr Qureshi. “At least, we made it possible and we’ll provide the best facility to our patients.”

Sindh health minister Jam Mehtab Hussain Dahar told The Express Tribune facility will be capable of dealing with all kinds of emergencies, such as natural disasters and bomb blasts, he said, adding that special doctors will be available to deal with trauma patients.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leaders Imran Ismail and Faisal Vawda also visited the victim’s family in Lyari to offer condolences.

Did they spend their stolen millions on this center or the tax payers foot the bill. In Pakistan it is always the corrupt and self promoting politicians who think they are doing a great favor to the nation by spending their money on projects which are suppose to be done in the first place. It was the Chief Minister on whose orders the roads and the hospital gates were closed to the public. This VIP culture in Pakistan is a pathetic lot who should be taught a lesson by the people to dump them for decades to come, they think the people should serve them instead of them serving the people. This is the same Chief Minister and the same party which went to famine stricken area in interior Sindh and had a lavish lunch while the people were starving and dying outside. Their behavior borders on criminality. On the second thought the people of Sindh deserve these thugs because they send them to govern again and again. Shame on all of them.Recommend

    In Pakistan the VIP culture and corrupt ministers are not the only ones to blame. The janta (public) is equally to be blamed. Why are they just lying down and doing nothing about it? Why are they not on the streets complaining in front of the Bhutto house? Because who cares? Just like everything else this too shall be forgotten. If this goes on Pakistan will continue to remain like this. We Indians have started realizing the power of janta and have begun flexing our muscles. Just two days ago the Indian public fought against the release of the juvenile rapist. Although unfortunately he was released but the very next day a law was passed in the parliament reducing the juvenile age from 18 to 16 meaning any 16 year old who commits a crime will be tried as an adult, compared to 18 years which was earlier. Don’t just sit at homes commenting on newspaper websites. Get up and do something. Just like the French revolution let there be a Pakistani revolution against the tyrants.Recommend

    As PPP Chair(wo)man Bilawla Bhutto is ultimately responsible for this violation of human rights, and all internet-savvy Pakistanis should tweet about to to foreign governments asking them to #banbilawal from entering their countries.

    Let these elite know their actions have consequences, if not in Pakistan, then at their homes, as most of them prefer living abroad anyway.

    So I urge everyone to please use the hashtag #banbilawal and tweet about this unacceptable violation of human rights by PPP in Pakistan. Make them feel the people won’t take their nonsense anymore. Please help to spread this message to save other Bismas in future.

Also, the police mobiles were pushing cars of the road even on the wide boat basin road so I can only imagine what they did on the more congested roads leading to civil hospital. This is a clear murder of an innocent child. But as usual PPP will get away with it. Baby Zardari will run of to Dubai by morning and join his sistersin fake sloganeering through twitter.

    Very corrupt person’s security details got in way and cause another death. I would slap bhutto off his name if he tried to cut line in front of me and my kid was sick, but i live in civilized country. Recommend

    With instances like this, I don’t understand why anyone would ever vote for the PPP, PML or any other party that uses the Pakistani people and taxpayer funds as their personal piggie bank. Bilawal is an unqualified, unelected clown who doesn’t deserve an ounce of respect, let alone protocol that inconveniences the lives of Pakistani citizens. What has he ever done in his life other than being born with a famous last name? Recommend

    Had the lyari general hospital next door of the family was functioning, he did not need to rush to civil hospital, but PPP always claimed lyari to be their stronghold but does not seem to be serious to make lyari hospital properly functional. The condition of lyari hospital was shown in the media, it was in mess with only 1 doctor. But keep on voting for these blokes, guys & do not complain. Recommend

    The PPP (Permanent Plunderer Party) of Pakistan is now termite for Pakistan and especially Sindh Province. There is no need to invite Bilawal Bhutto for inauguration of any institution and hospital in the country If his life is precious he must sit in the Bilawal House no need to come in public places.

    Bilawal is advancing on foot prints of her grand father, mother and father. He never seen and visited the dirty places and worst conditions of main roads of Karachi. There is no any development and repair work is going on at Karachi. They are earning more than 65% share of the total revenue collections in Pakistan but not spending a single penny.Recommend

    VIP protocol is human rights violation of the majority, This is terrorism. It should be opposed and should end immediately.
    Can some one file a petition in the Supreme Court to end this culture.

    KPK has done a good job banning it. Imran was right when he said : If you are threatened and there is a risk to your life STAY HOME.
