My name is Charanjeet Singh, an Indian national.
March 2013, I received employment in a law firm in D.I.F.C. [Dubai International Financial Centre], when I appeared for medical test at al Muhaisna medical centre [A part of D.H.A i.e. [Dubai Health Authority], suspected that i have old T.B scar and I was deported immediately without given, a right to appeal.
Neither I, while working and staying in my home country or Dubai, nor my parents had any kind of T.B infection in their lifetime.
A.I.I.M.S [All India Institute of Medical Sciences] hospital at New Delhi and done all my checkups i.e. Skin test [Mantoux] twice, Chest x-ray, Blood test, 3 times Sputum test and a Chest C.T Scan too on special advise by senior doctor to have a close look at the scar.
Based on my test reports, A.I.I.M.S issued me the Certificate stating that I do not have any active T.B. Senior doctors [A.I.I.M.S] asked me why did they deported you when there is no sign of T.B in our body??
December 2013 at Asia’s well known Tuberculosis Hospital in New Delhi i.e.[L R S - T.B Hospital] have checked my all reports and done my chest x-ray and culture test thrice at their hospital. All reports are negative as on date.
15th January 2014, Latest report from All India Institute of Medical Sciences [AIIMS] hospital, New Delhi has given me fitness certificate stating NO HISTORY OF TUBERCULOSIS IN MY BODY & NO HISTORY OF TUBERCULOSIS IN MY FAMILY.
20th January 2014 and 22nd January 2014, most recent test reports conducted from two different Pathological labs for the same test on different dates i.e. QUANTIFERON TB GOLD TEST (specially designed for detecting latent or old tuberculosis) are also Negative.
Therefore, it has been crystal clear; there is no evidence of either Active or Latent Tuberculosis in my body at all.
Mantoux test (wikipaedia) clearly mentions, its test results can be false positive(50-50). Doctors are instructed not to disclose this to any victim and they deport him/her on the basis of Mantoux test only. Ironically after my petition, online posts and local awareness , D.H.A doctors are admitting that this scar can be due to other reasons as well. In 2013, they used to judge it as just Old TB scar.
Now, Quantiferon Gold test seems accurate in results, but this test also shows false positive results, many links posted by doctors that proves it false as well, myself tested the same 2nd time and it shows false positive.
Big fluctuations in test reports for both (Mantoux test and Quantiferon Gold test) done in January 2014 and October 2014 for myself.This time both are showing near to false positive. Wikipedia is correct but doctors in Gulf countries are doing wrong by hiding this information.
Every time you do these test it will show a huge difference in your test reports.
Even if a person without scar or never had old or active TB in his life , his test reports will show positive results. Try Mantoux and Quantiferon 2-3 times you will know the secret facts.
For your confirmation, as on date no test has been developed to declare old tuberculosis in the body. That is why international organisations do not recognize these tests to confirm some one's medical illness in the past. It is just a rumor to harass someone. That't it.
Last but not the least, there are more than 40 reasons for lung scarring. You can read my blogs online for the same. Hence proved. Only Gulf countries are scared from scars.
http://www.thenational.ae/news/uae-news/health/deportation-laws-reform-lies-dormant clearly mentioned by Dr. Mario Raviglione [Director at W.H.O), this is absolute discrimination.
Making this post viral on social media is the only solution to abolish this law.
