Photograph of a medical class, Lahore 1951

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

At this link you can view a photograph I recently found, which shows some students from the year 4 medical class at the Fatima Jinnah Medical College, Lahore, from the year 1951, along with some staff. Dr Allah Bakhsh, who later in 1965 became General Secretary of the AAIIL in his retirement, is 4th from the left in the seated row (wearing glasses).

In the mid-1950s he became Chief Chemical Examiner of the city of Karachi, from which post he retired in 1960. Serving in that post required a high degree of probity, honesty and integrity since he was responsible for the post-mortem reports in murder cases. Some of these crimes were carried out at the behest of wealthy, influential persons who were prepared to offer large bribes to get a report which cleared the murderer.

New spam protection

Friday, January 1st, 2010

I was unable to get the previous spam-protection script to work today, which required you to specify the current year when submitting a comment. When I switched the script off, two auto-spam comments appeared in the moderation queue within a few minutes!

I have now installed a different spam protection method which doesn’t require comment posters to type the answer to any question. This saves you the extra bother, as well as providing me with spam protection (if the claim is true!).
