A recent report in a local newspaper asserts that some 70,000 fake doctors with bogus degrees are operating throughout Pakistan. Kamran Brohi points out to a facility in the Pakistan Medical And Dental Council Website with which one can check the registration status of a doctor from an online database.

    It is symptomatic of general
    corruption from the lowest to the highest levels of Pakistan society.Pakistan has been focused on terror export for the last 60 years and now they have no qualified doctors. So, these fake doctors are filling the gap left by rotton government policies.It is no news it has been reality for the past 60 years.
