Kafeel Khan’s Note of Gratitude

Dr. Kafeel Khan, who was involved in the 2017 Gorakhpur hospital tragedy, expressed his gratitude towards the makers of the movie “Jawan” for depicting a similar incident in the film. Although he hasn’t watched the movie yet, he has received numerous messages and wishes about it since its release.

Kafeel Khan took to X (formerly Twitter) and wrote in Hindi, “I haven’t seen Jawan but people have been messaging me saying they missed you. There is a lot of difference between the film world and real life. The culprits in the army, health minister, etc. get punished. But here I and those 81 families are still wandering for justice. Thank you @iamsrk sir and @Atlee_dir sir for raising the social issue.”

About Kafeel Khan

Dr. Kafeel Khan is a doctor and former lecturer at Baba Raghav Das (BRD) Medical College in Gorakhpur. He came into the spotlight when he discovered that the oxygen supply at the government hospital had been cut off due to non-payment of dues. Despite his efforts to bring attention to the issue, 63 children died of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome. Instead of addressing the lack of oxygen supply, the Uttar Pradesh government accused Dr. Kafeel of dereliction of duty and had him arrested.

In 2021, Dr. Kafeel Khan released a book titled “The Gorakhpur Hospital Tragedy: A Doctor’s Memory of a Deadly Medical Crisis,” which detailed the incidents of the 2017 event.
