Muslim dentist 'told patient to wear a headscarf or go elsewhere'

Muslim dentist 'told patient to wear a headscarf or go elsewhere'

A muslim dentist made a woman wear Islamic dress as the price of accepting her as an NHS patient, it is alleged.

Omer Butt is said to have told the patient that unless she wore a headscarf she would have to find another practice.

Later this month, Mr Butt will appear before a General Dental Council professional misconduct hearing, which has the power to strike him off.

It is claimed that the 31-year-old dentist asked to speak to the woman in private after she turned up for an appointment at his clinic in Bury.

According to the charges, he questioned her on whether she was a Muslim and told her that if he was to treat her she would have to wear Islamic dress.

He is also said to have read out a number of religious rules to her.

He then told his nurse to give the patient her own headscarf to wear, the accusation says.

It is not known whether the woman was a Muslim.

The charges to be heard by the General Dental Council say that Mr Butt undermined public confidence in his profession by discriminating against a patient and failed to act in her best interests.

Mr Butt is the older brother of former Islamic extremist Hassan Butt, who once declared he had 'no problem' with terror attacks on Britain and who said that September 11 "served the pleasure of Allah".

He has since recanted and now calls for all Muslims to abandon violence.

The dentist also featured in immigration hearings involving an asylum seeker suspected of providing a safe house for Kamel Bourgass, an Algerian terrorist jailed for life for stabbing PC Stephen Oake to death in Manchester in 2003.

Mr Butt, the immigration hearing was told, was introduced by his brother to the asylum seeker, who at various points claimed three different identities.

The tribunal was told that Mr Butt was "a respectable and responsible person who wishes to help devout and practising Muslims in difficulty".

He "did not regard the use of false names as unusual for asylum seekers".

The headscarf incident is alleged to have happened in 2005, at a time when between 4,000 and 8,000 people in Bury were unable to find an NHS dentist.

According to the charges, Mr Butt "asked to speak to Patient A in private.

"In the course of conversation with Patient A you: (a) asked whether she was Muslim; (b) told her words to the effect that, in order to receive treatment from you, she needed to wear appropriate Islamic dress; (c) quoted to her parts of the Ahadith."

The Ahadith is a series of instructions on behaviour attributed to Prophet Mohammed but not written as part of the Koran.

The charge continues: "You told Patient A that, if she did not wear a headscarf, she would need to register with another dentist. You instructed your dental nurse to give Patient A her headscarf.

"The dental nurse took Patient A to another room where she was given the nurse's headscarf to wear.

"In seeking to impose an Islamic dress code on Patient A in order for treatment to be provided you undermined public confidence in the profession by discriminating against Patient A."

If the charges are upheld, the Porsche- driving dentist will be found guilty of serious professional misconduct.

Penalties can range from a public warning to suspension and being struck off.

Tory MP Sir Paul Beresford, a former minister and a dentist, said: "When a patient comes to see me I have no concern with their religion. I do not ask Muslim patients to read the Bible.

"My practice tries to respect religious belief. For example, during Ramadan we try to help Muslim patients by making sure they do not have to swallow water when they are fasting. We do not ask patients to become Christians."

Women staff at Mr Butt's Bury practice do not routinely wear headscarves while at work.

One female patient said: "I think it is a pretty outrageous thing to ask but I have never felt as if I am being discriminated against at this practice as a Western woman.

"If I was then I would certainly make a full complaint. If it is true then it shows a reverse prejudice bordering on racism."

Mr Butt was involved in another controversial incident earlier this year when police stopped his Porsche 911 and said they could not read its customised number plate.

The dentist recorded the subsequent search of the car on his mobile phone and passed the video to the BBC, which broadcast it on a local news bulletin. It shows Mr Butt asking an officer: "Are you a racist?"

The dentist was then arrested for racially aggravated behaviour. There were no charges, and a complaint against the police by Mr Butt is still being considered.

Mr Butt was unavailable for comment yesterday. Staff at his practice said he was on holiday.

A doorknob and a string would be preferable treatment. A Mooslime with drills and sharp objects is a frightening thought.

This guy could get struck off. So - easily panicked FReepers notwithstanding - Britain ISN'T a Muslim state. It's not like he was, you know, wandering around with an Assault rifle looking for infidels to kill. That would be a clear sign that something was wrong with a country, don't you think?

Britain 3% Muslim.

America 3% Muslim.

It might depend on how long you had to wait for the appointment under Britain’s NHS and how bad the tooth ache is.

This muslim is being prosecuted in Britain. In America you have muslim taxi drivers refusing to carry alcohol or guide dogs and what do you do to them? You build them foot baths at airports. And you reckon we are finished. Good night America, you used to be a great country.

LOL, America has more african-american converts to islam than we have total muslims. We prosecute muslims like this who get out of line, you build them footbaths at airports! One of us is in denial over islam and I think it’s the US which has let more muslim immigrants in since 1995 than Britain has since 1950. . . . .

‘Britain 3% Muslim.

You’re being very generous with that figure Agere! America has 2.1m african-american converts to islam, plus the huge number of legal muslim immigrants plus the vast numbers that wander over their open unguarded borders everyday. You could happily double it and no-one could argue against it with any degree of certainty as they have no borders.

We do have borders, they just arent enforced. And I don’t see your government taking any big strides to stop immigration from Muslim countries.

Both our houses are glass so we should stop throwing stones at each other. lets throw them at the muslims seeking to overthrow our beautiful countries.

you are so right! WE (USA and Britain are on a slippery slope. WE both need to stop the concessions to these radical idiots. NO religious group should be able to insist on religious based rules, that do not pertain to others, in a service business. If Muslim cab drivers want to take only people with no alchohol or seeing eye dogs they should put a sign on their cabs indicating "MUSLIMS ONLY ALLOWED" then maybe the ACLU will get involved calling THEM racist, putting them out of business. As for the footbaths, well, if they want those concessions they should not leave home or their Mosques. WE do not put nor should we put HOLY WATER FOUNTAINS for catholics in public colleges, airports, etc.

This is just getting out of hand on both sides of the pond.

No defense needed as it wasn’t directed at you.

Our enemy is barbaric but not stupid. They have the best education oil money can buy. In some cases they have the best education a lib at Yale can give away.

They have studied and fought us for 1000 years. Their intentions are quite clear. We only need to wake up and stop letting them divide us.
