The war of words between the Indian Medical Association an Yoga Guru Ramdev has escalated. After the calls for booking him under the epidemic diseases act, IMA Yesterday also wrote to PM Modi complaining about Ramdev’s recent statements against vaccines and Allopathy. In a statement against Doctors, Ramdev had termed allopathy as stupid science. In another video that was circulated on social media yesterday, Ramdev was seen slamming doctors. He said that even after second dose of vaccines as many as 10000 doctors have died in the country. IMA has not only challenged the veracity of Ramdev’s statement but also termed the statement as Deceitful.
It has also pointed out how his statement could lead to Vaccine Hesitancy among people when, time and again, several experts and Prime Minister Himself has stressed on importance of Vaccination.
The IMA also called for booking Ramdev under Sedition for is statements against Frontline warriors. In another notice to Ramdev, it has asked for written apology. In case he fails to do so, the medical body has sought compensation of 1000 Crore rupees against the Defamation.
However, despite the severe backlash from medical fraternity, Ramdev remains defiant. While he has tendered oral apology, he also posed 25 questions to IMA. Now, another video of Ramdev has gone viral where he is seen talking to reporters about the calls for arresting him. In the video he is seen saying, “Not even their father can arrest Swami Ramdev. They keep on trending hashtags on social media. But we are now used to it.”
