This Afghan Refugee Doctor is Winning Praise for Saving Lives in Pakistan

If the coronavirus pandemic has taught us one thing, its that the real heroes are the doctors and medical professionals alongside the law enforcement agencies, who are risking their own lives to save others.

The doctors and nurses are the frontline warriors in this battle, and the entire world is indebted to them for their selfless services. Dr. Saleema Rehman, an Afghan refugee in Pakistan, is another such hero who is pursuing this noble profession.

Saleema works at Holy Family Hospital in Rawalpindi where she is taking care of the coronavirus patients alongside her fellow doctors and paramedical staff. The total number of reported coronavirus cases have jumped above 4,000 in Pakistan with over 50 deaths.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UHNCR) Representation for EU Affairs posted a tribute to the brave doctor on Twitter, saying, “At Holy Family Hospital in Rawalpindi, Afghan refugee Dr. Saleema Rehman provides a lifeline to some of the poorest people in Pakistan”.

  • Ofcourse Afghans are heroes. They have ruled vast Punjab and Sindh in the past and Darbaris made stories about them as the best compared to locals. Same story is repeating now.

    Media always run a special campaign to portray people of certain origin as the best and then others as the worst. ProPakistani is always there to make the heroes out of the people with lastname as Khans or of certain ethnicty, but you will never see a positive story of any Punjabi or a Sindhi on this forum.
