A surgeon of Syrian descent claims he's not a racist because he only has problems with Indians.
Ragheb Nouman, 52, declared physicians from India would cause the downfall of Britain's healthcare system, the Natonial Healthcare Service.
India is traditionally a Hindu nation while Syrians tend to embrace Islam. The two religions are incompatible.
News reports claim Nouman said Indian doctors 'should clean toilets and not practise medicine'.
The row provides more evidence that multiculturalism is rife with strife and that diversity is more often a weakness than a strength.

A Syrian surgeon claimed Indian doctors should 'clean toilets and not practise medicine' during a series of racist rants, a tribunal heard today.
Ragheb Nouman, 52, said they would be the 'downfall of the NHS' and would 'take us all over' during conversations with hospital colleagues, it was alleged.
When a complaint was made about him to bosses, Nouman accused Indian doctors of being 'untrustworthy, rude and cheeky,' and said they 'should be gardeners', the tribunal heard.
Later, in emails sent to medical watchdogs, the father of three denied being being racist but condemned what he called 'bloody Indians,' it was claimed.
Nouman, who was working as a locum at University Hospital of Hartlepool at the time, said: 'I will never accept to be insulted by cheeky Indian doctors, whereas I do respect polite Indian doctors.
'Therefore you must understand that I am not racist but I hate cheeky people and the complaint was false and fabricated by that liar Indian so you can throw it in a rubbish bin as it is completely NIL'.
The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service was told incidents occurred in July 2012 just weeks after Nouman started working in orthopaedics at North Tees and Hartlepools Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust that May.
They began when he was overheard arguing with colleagues on a ward, telling one: 'I don't understand you Indian b*******' before a female staff member called him into her office to diffuse the situation.
But Nouman told the woman: 'The only reason that I have been brought in for this discussion is because of the Indian doctors that have reported me.
'I am not racist, I have no problem with Arabs or Jews, only with Indians and the Indian population.
