Ramdev Moves SC Seeking Stay On Nationwide FIRs Against Him For Allopathy Remarks

“Lakhs of people have died because of allopathic medicines, far more than those who died because they did not get treatment or oxygen,” Ramdev was heard saying in a viral video.

After stirring up a controversy where he questioned the efficacy of allopathy drugs against COVID-19 and criticized doctors, yoga guru Ramdev on Wednesday moved to the Supreme Court seeking a stay of the proceedings in multiple FIRs lodged against him in various states.

He has also sought that the FIRs across the country be clubbed together and transferred to Delhi.

“Lakhs of people have died because of allopathic medicines, far more than those who died because they did not get treatment or oxygen,” Ramdev was heard saying in a viral video.

He even called allopathic medicine ‘stupid’, infuriating doctors across the country who protested against him.
