tradition states that she should not be seen by anyone else than her husband. However,
because of the lack of knowledge the doctor may have about this he goes on to
examine her by lifting up her veil from the face, noticing this her husband
gets angry and start to shout at the doctor and stop him from examining the
patient. Due to this the professional will not be able to give the right treatment
