Job offers in store for Haneef

Bangalore, July 30, 2007 – A government job, a teaching position in his alma mater and two leading hospitals in the city willing to take him in… jobs lined up for Muhammad Haneef on Monday, a day after he arrived home from Australia to a warm but chaotic welcome after being cleared of terror link charges.

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy had taken the lead in announcing his intention to appoint the doctor in a government hospital after holding talks with him later on Monday.

The state government’s readiness to make the offer even when city police want to talk to Haneef later this week was expected to spur many private institutions in the health sector to follow suit, as per HT.

The management of Dr BR Ambedkar Medical College from where Haneef graduated in 2002 is considering offering him a teaching position, sources said.

Haneef, who was arrested in Brisbane on July 2 and cleared of charges that he supported the terror plot in Britain three days ago, would also be welcome to work at two leading hospitals here, local reports said.

His lawyer Peter Russo, who accompanied him to Bangalore on Sunday, has said the 27-year-old doctor has six years to sue the Australian government for damages.

He said his first priority was to continue the legal battle for restoration of Haneef’s visa that was cancelled by Australian Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews within hours of the doctor getting bail from a Brisbane court earlier this month.

For Haneef and his family it was a long night on Sunday as the doctor could meet his wife Firdous Arshiya and one-month-old daughter Hania only after 11.30 pm, two hours after landing in Bangalore from Brisbane via Bangkok.

His Thai airways flight landed at the airport at around 9.35 pm and immigration clearance formalities were completed within minutes.

But his departure from the airport to his wife’s house about 10 km away took a long time as the large media contingent and an unexpectedly big crowd at the airport mobbed him.

After chaotic scenes and a verbal duel between Haneef’s relatives and the media contingent, all the cameramen, photographers and reporters were let into the house where Haneef read out from a brief prepared statement.

Only after that could he meet Firdous, Hania, his mother Quratulain, sister Sumaiyya, brother Shoaib, and other members of the family.

After cuddling his baby and talking to wife and relatives it was time for prayers and the sumptuous feast the family had prepared to celebrate his return from the 25-day ordeal in Australia.

Haneef, working as registrar at Gold Coast Hospital in Queensland, was on way to the Brisbane airport on a one-way ticket to India when he was detained on suspicion of having links with the failed June end terror bid in Britain.

He was charged with being “reckless” in giving his mobile SIM card to his cousin Sabeel Ahmed, who was detained the same day in Liverpool by the British police following the failed June 30 attack on Glasgow airport.
