New Delhi: Indian Medical Association (IMA) has threatened to move court if the Union Health Ministry does not take suo motu cognisance of “false and baseless” statements made by yoga guru Ramdev.
“Union Health Minister either accept accusation and dissolve modern medical facility or prosecute him and book him under Epidemic Diseases Act,” IMA said in a statement issued on Saturday.
IMA cited a recent video of Ramdev which is viral on social media. In the video, Ramdev is allegedly heard saying, “Allopathy ek aisi stupid and diwaliya science hai.”
The association also objected to Ramdev’s statement, “Lakho logo ki maut Allopathy ki dawai khane se hui hai” saying that it challenges the wisdom and integrity of the Drug Controller General of India and the Union Health Ministry.
