He said, "My illness was actually perpetrated by people who hate me. They did what they did to me. Later, I was taken to the hospital. The doctors are prophets. So, they went into my system, and they told me what was wrong and what they were going to do. I said, 'Whatever you are going to do, please do it; let me live because if I die like this, the enemies will laugh'. And then the doctors said, 'Okay, there's no problem'.
