It’s not bad enough that they bring their 7th century superstitions and behaviors to local UK neighborhoods but now they want to overturn hundreds of years of medical knowledge to please their so-called prophet.

The Islamic Medical Association – no AMA by a long shot – has injected itself into the heat debate in Britain. It seems that medical hygiene in room must give way to dogma. Muslim medical students are refusing to obey hygiene rules brought in to stop the spread of deadly superbugs, because they say it is against their religion.

Muslim women working at U.K. medical facilities are increasingly refusing to comply with the basic hygiene standard of rolling up their sleeves when their washing hands, it was reported.

According to the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph, female workers are ignoring Britain’s Department of Health rules requiring medics to be “bare below the elbow” because they consider showing any skin — outside the hands and face — immodest.

The guidelines were put into place to stave off the spread of infectious killer bugs like MRSA and Clostridium difficile, which have been implicated in the deaths of hundreds of hospital patients, according to the paper.

Hygiene experts said the standard should hold for all workers— even if it goes against their religion.

Duh!! You think?

The Islamic Medical Association, for one, has issued a statement that “no practicing Muslim woman — doctor, medical student, nurse or patient — should be forced to bare her arms below the elbow,” according to paper.

Some comments from medical professionals in the field.

Dr Mark Enright, professor of microbiology at Imperial College London, said:

To wash your hands properly, and reduce the risks of MRSA and C.difficile, you have to be able to wash the whole area around the wrist. I don’t think it would be right to make an exemption for people on any grounds. The policy of bare below the elbows has to be applied universally.


Dr Charles Tannock, a Conservative MEP and former hospital consultant, added:

These students are being trained using taxpayers’ money and they have a duty of care to their patients not to put their health at risk. Perhaps these women should not be choosing medicine as a career if they feel unable to abide by the guidelines that everyone else has to follow.


So what’s next? Refusing to handle surgery instruments because they were sterilized in alcohol?

But this comment was the best.

What are the chances of the team of doctors having sex because they saw each others arms while scrubbing?
