Several Muslim organisations have urged the State government to sanction a government Unani medical college for Bidar in this year’s budget.
This is among the demands made to the government by the organisations to be included in the budget.
One of the factors supporting the demand is the acceptance of the medical system in Bidar and surrounding areas. The concentration of large number of Unani practitioners or Hakims and pharmacy in and around Bidar is another reason.
“Unani practice in Bidar has a rich history,” says Abdul Samad Bharati, writer and chronicler of the Deccan.
Among those who have appealed to the government for a Unani college are the Unani Medical Practitioners Association and the Bidar District Writers and Poets Association.
