Pakistan Health Minister Caused Worst Outbreak of Hepatitis in US History, Blamed Islamophobia

Tahir-Ali-Javed-ONLINE-640x480

This is the problem with that whole “Pin a visa on every graduate student” school of thought. Sometimes that visa turns into a bomb. Other times it turns into a Hepatitis C epidemic.

Dr. Tahir Ali Javed is a politician with the Pakistan Muslim League and has been its local Minister of Health and Minister for Special Education, and a member for Protection of the Environment.

Back in America, he’s known as the man responsible for the largest Hepatitis C outbreak in US history.

Even as 99 people tested positive for hepatitis C and five people died, Javed faced no criminal charges. And even as old medical records, several of Javed’s nurses and several of his victims suggested that the oncologist had long known of the danger — that he had presided over a clinic whose employees repeatedly committed serious safety errors — Dr. Tahir Ali Javed got elected to a new post in Pakistan.

He became a public health minister.

By Pakistani standards, infecting 99 people with hepatitis makes Dr. Javed a leading specialist.

Investigators eventually determined that Evelyn and at least 98 other people had been infected after Javed’s nurses repeatedly didn’t change the syringe while flushing cancer patients’ ports using saline from a community saline bag. Patients told state investigators the saline bag would be clear in the morning, and swimming with pink particles in the afternoon.

Shoddy medical practices, including reused syringes, had earlier been present in Javed’s oncology clinic, known as the Fremont Cancer Center, according to an earlier audit done by the Missouri Valley Cancer Consortium. That investigation’s results were shared with Javed in 2001, and then became public during the civil litigation that followed the outbreak.

That’s standard practice in the Third World. And it’s what happens when you use Third World doctors. I’ve seen this more than once.

But that wasn’t all that Dr. Ali Death did.

The Attorney General’s Office also accused him of exploiting a patient to conduct a sexual relationship with her. The attorney general alleged that Javed, a cancer specialist, gave the woman a false diagnosis and told her not to seek treatment elsewhere because other providers would inform her insurance company and she wouldn’t be able to get insurance again.

Dr. Tahir Ali Javed did have a great defense. All the people infected with Hepatitis C were just Islamophobes.

In Pakistan, Javed became a public health official and reportedly blamed the situation in Nebraska on anti-Muslim sentiment.

It works for terrorism. It works for killing six people with sloppy medicine. They just hate you because you’re Muslim.

And then to top everything else off, Dr Tahri Al Javed tried reapplying for his medical license in New York.

Jean Schafersman of Hooper, Neb., whose son was fighting cancer when he was infected with hepatitis from treatment in Javed’s clinic, expressed astonishment over Javed’s New York application.

“How does that work?” she asked.

As for Javed’s apparent desire to practice again in the United States, she said: “Well, I am not too happy about it.”

Obviously another Islamophobe.

    this is a very serious issue. we need to be informed if this escalates.

      It is serious, laura r! Do we need to start worrying about our doctors, if they have Islamic or Semitic names…..and, there’s that “taqiyyah” thing where Muslims can bold-faced lie about being a Muslim, if telling the truth might interfere with their silent jihad. And, EVERYONE is scared into wriggling jelly about them. Why?! Because they act like rabid wolves at the drop of a word, a cartoon, a book, a movie, anything where they can find even a sliver of dissing the prophet, they immediately go on a riot and destroy, rape, kill, enslave, and burn out out anyone who does not believe in Islam, and/or won’t convert. And, if you convert to one of the less favored sects, you’re still in trouble. They do not value life, period!

      • laura r

        how are we supposed to know if its a christian or an islamist?

        • Michael Christian Knudsen

          The names “Mohammed,” “Sayyid,” “Qutb,” “Ali,” and “Achmed” are easy tells.

          As are their countries of origin.

          Our society loves to complicate things. This one is quite simple.

          • laura r

            there are hindu doctors who can be good. thank you for the advice.

      • Crazycatkid

        “Semitic” names? Huh? What on earth does THAT mean?
        I’ll bet if you were I’ll like Saudi princes do you’d seek a “Semitic” doctor real fast.

        • Sussex Girl

          Both Jews and Arabs trace their ancestry to Noah’s son Shem, making both groups Semites. So, yes, a Saudi prince actually would see a Semitic doctor, just an Arab one.

        • pen44

          Thank you, Sussex Girl!!

          Crazycatkid, Merriam-Webster defines “Semite” as a member of any of a number of peoples of ancient southwestern Asia, including Hebrews & Arabs.

          A descendant of such.

    No. Just no.

    Medical jihad, the new reality in the united states of 0bamastan.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      In this case it’s a partial rejection of modern science.

      So we actually need to worry about both in medicine.

      • defcon 4

        I don’t think the spreading of hepatitis at this clinic was accidental or the result of an oversight.

        • jakespoon

          A community saline bag? They may as well have spit in one another’s mouths.Must have been Pakistani nurses, too.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          Of course you might be right, but you might also be surprised to see just how poor hygiene can be when you think microbiology is just another Jewish conspiracy.

  • Veracious_one

    Pakistan is the land where they kill healthcare workers…

  • objectivefactsmatter

    I can’t even begin to tell how many Muslims I know that reject everything Pasteur proved. He must be considered part of the vast Jewish conspiracy to defeat Islam by coercing Muslims to use non-sharia hygienic practices.

    • jakespoon

      Look in the kitchens of any deli in a convenience store owned by immigrants from the M.E. A petri dish,basically.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        We’re on the same page.

  • UCSPanther

    The name for a doctor or other health care provider who willfully kills/harms their patients, through either direct action or gross negligence is “Angel of Death”.

    Dr. Javed definitely qualifies…

  • herb benty

    C’mon, cut the crap, this guy/assistants knew what the dangers were, that was at least manslaughter. And his ridiculous statements suggest jihad. Wake up America.

  • dougjmiller

    Why hasn’t the DOJ under Holder filed for extradition. This psychopath needs to stand trial here for murder.

    • glpage

      Because the guy is a person of color; Holder won’t go after anyone unless they’re white.

    • john spielman

      he can’t be held responsible because its racist to insist that people from third world countrIes working in the US have to elevate their standards of health care to ours!! (SARC)

  • Max

    It is known as the “jihad of the scalpel.” In the UK, the preferred method is to give the all-clear to cancer patients when the actual prognosis is bad-to-terminal. And since the NHS has become little more than an immigration racket, your chances of getting a second opinion from a human doctor are vanishing small.

  • oldtimer

    keep your eyes open, he just may reapply in NY now that deblasio is mayor

  • S1999

    But isn’t there a silver lining to this story? He’s in Pakistan, and in charge of THEIR health!

    • john spielman

      it probably doesn’t matter because most people in third world counties have chronic hepatitis (though it is usually B not C)

      • objectivefactsmatter

        Guess why.

      • Jake-a-runi

        Almost a half century ago, when I was serving in Korea (I spent the Vietnam War years ’68 and ’69 in Korea, lucky me) a KATUSA, a ROK Army soldier with some English attached to the US Army, a practice instituted during the Korean War, opted to take a “Tine test”, to detect exposure to tuberculosis. The test was accomplished by inflicting three small punctures in the forearm, which may or may not show a reaction of reddening and swelling.

        He had been living in a tuberculosis-rich environment for all his twenty years and, without exaggeration, the reaction almost cost him his arm.

  • rbla

    We have a trifecta here – mass third world immigration and
    the proposed immigration “reform”, Obamacare and its inevitable increase in
    third world practitioners under affirmative action and last but not least
    Islam.

    • Jake-a-runi

      Some parties claim we can thank the AMA for restricting the capacity of our medical schools, explaining why, for the past several decades, a full third of America’s physicians are the product of foreign schooling.

      A quarter century ago, when my kids were children, we used to see a family practitioner who’d graduated from Universidad de las Americas in Mexico, where many of the students are US citizens who could not matriculate here. His Spanish was, of course, perfect and U de A has a reputation of running a very demanding program. When I started seeing him, he didn’t even have furniture. Five years later, his financial situation in ballistic overdrive, he praised the AMA for the contrived shortage.

    A Muslim stubs his toe on a remote, deserted island in the Indonesian Archipelago and who’s to blame? The Islamophibes of course!

  • jakespoon

    Why was the clinic never inspected? Let me guess…

  • Jake-a-runi

    Is anyone familiar with the incidence of physicians of the Muhammadan persuasion within the VA?

  • Hard Little Machine

    This from a culture that believes polio vaccines are a Zionist plot bent on global Muslim impotence? Color me amazed.

  • Pray Hard

    The stench of death and disease and the worship and lust for such is woven into every Muslim’s life. Death is their football, baseball and apple pie (in America). Knowing that, let’s get past the awfulizing and start doing whatever we can to rid our country of such. Let’s bring America back! Our elites (government, corporate, church, etc.) have only their personal interests at heart, so screw them. We have to do it. I don’t know how either, but we’ll eventually figure it out and we will prevail.
