Supreme Court of India's final order on 3rd Feb. 2000 in the matter of Civil Apeal No. 5682 0f 1999
2. 30 (Thirty) beds
in the proposed Saifee Hospital shall be reserved for the treatment of members of the Dawoodi Bohra Community free of charge
. Such beds and treatment to be provided to economically needy Dawoodi Bohras regardless of whether they have the Oath of Alligiance (Misaq) or not and regardless of whther they have been excommunicated (Baraat) or not.
The criterion of ecomonic need shall be as determined by the Maharastra Government for other charitable hospitals.
So for as Saifee Hospital being a charitable hospital
and Supreme Court of India’s order to it to provide free of cost beds and treatment to poor and needy Dawoodi Bohras regardless of Misaq and Baraat is concerned, that order is quite clear.
Now question is whether the Supreme Court’s order is followed by the hospital or not?
I personally know one recent case which throws some light on the honesty of Saifee Hospital.
One Bohra lady, Nafeesa Zainul Lokhandwala arrived in Mumbai for attending Sayedna Saheb’s vaiz in Marol on 16th Dec. 2010. She came to Mumbai with her two kids by train and got down at Bandra Railway Terminus. From there she went to Bandra local train station to take a train to reach Marol. When train arrived she hurriedly climbed on the train but realized that her two kids could not make it due to normal rush. She quickly got down from the train. But she fell down on the platform as her legs got entangled in the Rida that she was wearing. She fell down and had serious head injury.
She was rushed to Saifee Hospital at Charni Road. She was treated in that hospital for three days and thereafter her husband, Nasir Lokhandwala was given a bill by doctors of Saifee Hospital, which he found beyond his reach. So he took his wife back to Godhara and admitted her in Neo-life Hospital where she died after struggling for few days.
The doctors in Saifee Hospital had also said there was no chance of her survival.
