LAHORE: Principal Ameer Uddin Medical College Prof. Dr. Sardar Mohammad Al-freed Zafar has said that honorable retirement after completion of tenure is not less than a great honor for any employee and everyone going through this process should bestow before Allah Almighty. He added that the Government has to spend a lot of money from national exchequer on education and training of a doctor so it is needed that women doctors must join the medical field after MBBS and complete their tenure. He said that unfortunately the majority of female doctors have to leave the medical field after getting married which is not as per requirement.

They said that she treated the singing patients in a very good manner and modern way during her tenure and also she guided his juniors in the best way so her services to the organization will never be forgotten, and his successors will also follow her footprints.
