Bahrain Mirror: Royal Bahrain Hospital published a press statement on Instagram announcing terminating services of Indian doctor Sunil Rao after posting statements offensive to Muslims and Palestine on social media outlets.

"It has come to our attention that Dr. Sunil Rao who is working as a Specialist in Internal Medicine has posted tweets on social media platforms that are offensive to our society. We would like to confirm that his tweets and ideology are personal and do not reflect the opinion and values of the Hospital. This is a violation of our code of conduct and we have taken the necessary legal actions and his services have been terminated with immediate effect," the hospital said in a statement.

Tweets for Indian doctor Sunil Rao were circulated on the "X" platform in which he said that "Islam is a barbaric religion" and "Muslims are attacking Israel and Palestinian must be destroyed."

Four days ago, Rao tweeted saying "Israel fights back will do a scorched earth attack, plenty will be killed, displaced, Hamas will be destroyed (rightly so), the what? If I may ask? Occupy under military force?"

His second tweet was two days ago in which he said "What would be the appropriate reasonable response to the massacre on Oct. 7?" He also retweeted a video published by Loay Alshareef showing Palestinian journalist Wafa Al-Udaini from Gaza trying to answer the same question.
