A private hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut had recently put out an advertisement in a Hindi newspaper, asking Muslims to visit the hospital only if they have got a Covid-19 test done and their results turned out negative.

The advertisement issued by Valentis Cancer Hospital asked Muslim patients and their attendants to produce their Covid-19 negative certificates and only then can they avail medical facilities at the hospital.

The Uttar Pradesh Police has filed an FIR against the owner of Valentis Hospital over the matter.

Further, the advertisement said that the hospital will send the sample of the patient and attendant for Covid-19 in case of an emergency and they will be charged Rs 4,500 for each test.
