Red Cross doctor in Austria rejects blood donations from Muslims
A doctor working for the Red Cross in the Austrian city of Linz has caused outrage by criticizing a blood donation campaign by an Islamic charity, claiming that Muslims who come from Muslim countries have bad blood.
The IRG foundation has been campaigning for Muslims to donate blood, but the Red Cross doctor's claim that Muslims all at very least have Hepititus B left charity worker Aysun Ozdemir shocked.
Ozdemir personally spoke with the doctor over the phone on February 5, criticizing the comments and informing the doctor that illnesses have got nothing to do with one's ethnic or religious background.
