And yes, i wasn't clear but a timeframe of say 2 weeks would be better than the next tournament. It's not perfect but it sounds reasonable. A player retiring with injury shouldn't be able to play in the following week because of the injury.

Remember too that these are professionals players. Give the chance, they would like to win as many titles, ranking points and prize monies that go with them if possible and not try to fake injury on purpose.
But if they are forced to play even when injured, their livelihood may end prematurely as the injury may become worse.

Is there an obligation for anyone/player/country to revolve around BWF?

Your words: "Yeah right. Withdrawing from Korea PSS and putting them in intensive training camp.
They have a higher chance of injury during the training."
How do you know what kind of "intensive" training camp they would be in?

Badminton may lose its place in Olympics, says Taufik
Excerpt from article:-
"Taufik said the slew of retirements and withdrawals at last week’s US$1mil Korean Open, the richest badminton tournament in the world, further damaged the sport’s image."
“The situation has worsened since I started playing badminton at the age of 15. The constant retirements of players do not augur well for the game. There is talk that badminton may not make it as a sport in the 2020 Olympics. We must bear in mind that other sports are strongly lobbying to be included.
“I have just started my own centre. It caters for eight or nine-year-olds. Now, I am not sure whether they will get a chance to play in the Olympics,” added Taufik.
What irked Taufik most was that the withdrawals and retirements still occurred despite the Badminton World Federation (BWF) taking a strong stance, especially during last year’s London Olympic Games. Four women’s doubles pairs were banned for “not using one’s best efforts to win a match”. The BWF also warned their affiliates over the constant walkovers on the tour.

I have a feeling some will comment on who said all those things instead of what he said. Let's see.
