Omar Butt, a Muslim dentist who worked at the Unsworth smile clinic like Muslim women to be modestly dressed when they turned up to have their teeth done. We dont know if Omar was ever a member of the boy scouts but he was certainly prepared for secular Muslim women who turned up niquabless and said, Ayup, I fergot me effin veil, ferget me ead if it werent screwed on, me. (Thats how Muslim women in Bury talk.) Omar you see kept a box of spare veils in his surgery and would ask unveiled Muslim women to one on.
Mr Butt has also been accused of asking patients if they prayed three times a day and performed their ritual ablutions diligently before deciding what treatment he would ofer people. We have not heard of any instances where he has pulled out all somebody’s teeth because they fell short on their religious obligations. Nor has there been any suggestion that he removed the teeth of infidels with rusty pliers.
Omar also had signs in his surgery reminding Muslims that sharia law still applies even when they are having teeth pulled. He says he is not an extremist but wanted people to know he is a Muslim. Well thats very nice but what about women patients who didnt want people to know they are Muslims.
As a result of his bizarre behaviour Omar, having already served one suspension after being found guilty of serious professional misconduct in 2007 is facing another disciplinary hearing. If he is judged guilty on the current charges he will lose his job.
We would like to know how can you work on somebodys teeth when they are wearing a veil? Would a surgeon try to do a hear transplant without taking the patients shirt off?
