The sick and reprehensible irony of radical Islam, killing a doctor who was trying to save others … Doctor loses his live trying to save others.
Mehdi Ali Qamar, an American doctor was killed when two gunmen on motorcycles shot him dead as he was visiting a graveyard in Pakistan. Dr. Mehdi Ali Qamar was a cardiologist and resident of Fairfield, Ohio. The murdered doctor had arrived in the Punjab province of Pakistan just three days ago to provide free medical cardiac care to heart patients. News travels fast in radical Muslim circles. It is reported that Dr. Mehdi Ali Qamar was shot at least ten times at close range. He was killed in front of his wife and son, who thankfully were not harmed.

Doctor Mehdi Ali Qamar
A volunteer American cardiologist of Pakistani origin was shot dead in a remote Pakistani town on Monday, in the latest attack which underscored growing religious hatred across the south Asian country.
Doctor Mehdi Ali Qamar, who a Pakistani official said lived in Columbus, Ohio, and was visiting a family graveyard in the town of Chenab Nagar in Pakistan’s Punjab province early morning on Monday, was shot by two gunmen riding a motorcycle.
He belonged to the Ahmadi sect of Muslims whose members were officially declared to be heretics under Pakistan’s law in the mid-1970s. Qamar was a naturalized U.S. citizen who moved there about 15 years ago but visited Pakistan occasionally for volunteer work, said a senior police official in Pakistan’s city of Lahore, which is the local capital of the Punjab.
So why the senseless killing of a volunteer doctor who was just looking to help others? Does radical Islam really need an excuse to kill?
“The assassination of Dr. Qamar took place apparently because he belonged to the Ahmadi sect,” said the police official adding that the doctor was in Pakistan to perform medical procedures as a volunteer.
The Ahmadi movement is regarded by orthodox Muslims as heretical because it does not believe that Mohammed was the final prophet sent to guide mankind.
The U.S. Embassy in Islamabad confirmed the attack and the identity of the victim. Meghan Gregonis, a U.S. Embassy spokeswoman, said in a statement: “We express our deepest condolences to his family and friends. The U.S. Embassy is providing consular assistance. Out of respect for Dr. Qamar’s family during this difficult time, we have no further information to share.”
