IMA demands legal action against Ramdev for allopathy is stupid remark

The topmost association of Indian doctors sent him a legal notice demanding apology and withdrawal of his statement, calling it baseless and unscrupulous claims made for cheap publicity.

The Indian Medical Association asked Yoga Guru Ramdev to apologise for his comments on modern medical treatments in which he said more people died of allopathy during the Covid-19 pandemic than the virus itself.

The topmost association of Indian doctors sent him a legal notice demanding apology and withdrawal of his statement, calling it baseless and unscrupulous claims made for cheap publicity. The IMA said Ramdev had damaged the reputation of practitioners of allopathy and modern medicine when they are striving to save lives during the pandemic.

In a video that was widely shared on social media, Ramdev is heard saying at a recent event, lakhs of people have died because of allopathic medicines, far more than those who died because they did not get treatment or oxygen. He also purportedly called allopathy a stupid and bankrupt science.

However, facing a backlash over the remarks, Ramdev’s Patanjali group said the video had been edited and the statement taken out of context. Baba Ramdev had no ill-will against modern science and good practitioners of modern medicine, it said.

The Ayurvedic products group also mentioned that the event was a private event and Ramdev was reading out a forwarded WhatsApp message received by him and various other members who were participating in the event and what is being attributed against him is false and nugatory, it said.

Patanjali, based in Uttarakhand’s Haridwar, added Ramdev believes that allopathy is a progressive science; and a combination of allopathy, Ayurveda and yoga will be beneficial to everyone during such difficult times.

Besides that, Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Saturday lashed out at Yoga guru Ramdev for his remarks and demanded the Union health minister Harsh Vardhan to prosecute him under Epidemic Diseases Act 1897 or accept his accusations and dissolve the modern medical facility.

It also claimed that Ramdev had called doctors murderers in front of the Health Minister – a doctor himself – during the release of his wonder drugs.
