Supreme Court Fumes “Why is Baba Ramdev accusing allopathy doctors?”

New Delhi : A Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice N V Ramannacriticized yoga guru Baba Ramdev for his disparaging remarks on modern medicine systems like allopathy. Chief Justice N V Ramana  asked “Why is Baba Ramdev accusing Allopathy Doctors? He popularised yoga. Good. But he should not criticize other systems. What is the guarantee that what he follows will cure everything?”.

The Supreme Court made these observations while hearing a petition by Indian Medical Association (IMA), alleging smear campaigns against allopathic medicines, their doctors and Covid-19 vaccination. The bench also issued a notice to the centre seeking its reply on IMA’s plea. The topmost association of Indian doctors said Ramdev had damaged the reputation of practitioners of allopathy and modern medicine when they are striving to save lives during the pandemic.

Last week, the Delhi High Court had asked Baba Ramdev to refrain from making misleading comments on Ayurveda.
