Dr​.​Suresh Babu Vallumkonda started this petition to Editor-in-chief of BMJ and Editor-in-chief of LANCET

Articles, ‘Fear and uncertainty around Kashmir's future' published in LANCET and “Concern regarding access to health care in Jammu and Kashmir, India” published in BMJ are really shocking and dividing the doctors of entire world. Is it justifiable to publish such provocative socio-political matters in medical journals? 

              By principle, articles in medical journals should disseminate scientific knowledge to all medical professionals and improve their skills to manage the patient in best possible way. But the articles mentioned above, published in famous international journals are neither knowledgeful nor professional, instead they are provocative.

              There are so many socio-political issues all around the world. Are medical journals going to publish articles on all of these issues? If that is so, what is the sanctity of these medical journals and what is credibility of Hippocrates oath?

               The medical journals should not entertain publishing of these type of socio-political articles and must concentrate on evidence based scientific medical issues as per the aspiration of medical professionals. Publishing non-medical and provocative articles may divide our medical community dangerously and over a period of time the aim of publishing medical journals become meaningless.

Before spreading this POLITICAL VIRUS to other journals, I request Editor-in-chief of BMJ and Editor-in-chief of LANCET to take strong preventive action.

Prevention is better than cure.

 Join me and sign this petition to make our medical community united for ever.
