IMA said that Ramdev, in a widely circulated video, has also raised a question on vaccination drive saying that 10000 doctors in the country died after getting 2nd dose of vaccine.
Indian Medical Association (IMA) Uttarakhand has filed a defamation case of Rs 1000 crore on Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev on Wednesday. The association has made the case on the basis of a video of Baba Ramdev going viral on social media, in which he is seen calling allopathy rubbish and bankrupt science.
At the same time, the National Unit of the IMA has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on this issue. It says that Ramdev in a widely circulated video has also raised a question on vaccination drive saying that 10000 doctors in the country died after getting 2nd dose of vaccine. Calling the claim “deceitful” IMA has demanded Ramdev be charged under sedition.
Ramdev’s Written Apology
Recently, Ramdev’s statement against medical professionals and Allopathy went viral. The yoga guru later retracted his statement. The association has however said that if Ramdev does not release the video in the next 15 days and do not apologize in writing, the medical body will seek compensation of Rs 1000 crore.
IMA Sends Notice
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Saturday accused Baba Ramdev of spreading lies against allopathy treatment. IMA sent a legal notice to Ramdev. The doctors’ body had also demanded the prosecution of Ramdev. However, Ramdev’s organization Patanjali had issued a statement denouncing the allegations as false.
IMA wrote, “Baba Ramdev has claimed that millions of people died due to drugs other than Remedesvir, Fabiflu, etc. He has challenged the credibility of the Drugs Controller General of India (DGCI) and the Health Minister. The use of Remadesivir in the treatment of Coronavirus patients was approved by the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO), a central body in June-July 2020. Baba Ramdev should be prosecuted for spreading these illusions and endangering the lives of millions of people. Ramdev had described Favipiravir as a medicine for fever. This shows how little knowledge he has about medical science.”
