New Delhi: In a massive uproar against Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev's comment on Allopathy, the doctors have called for a nationwide protest on June 1 and observe it as a 'black day' by wearing black bands on duty.
Various doctors' bodies and associations have come up in arms against Ramdev for publically mocking the allopathy branch by calling it 'stupid science'. The remarks were met with vociferous protests, following which Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan asked him to withdraw the "extremely unfortunate" statement.
Soon, Baba Ramdev was forced to withdraw his statements.
However, a day later, the yoga guru posed 25 questions to the Indian Medical Association (IMA) in an 'open letter' on his Twitter handle, asking if allopathy offered permanent relief for ailments.

Expressing dismay at no action being taken against Ramdev, allopathy doctors have now declared a pan India protest.
FORDA further claimed that their statements are causing vaccine hesitancy in normal people, hence, strict action must be taken against them.
Even after raising objections to statements by Mr. Ram Kishan Yadav (#RamdevBaba), no action has been taken yet. We are hereby declaring Nationwide #BlackDayProtest on 1st June,2021 at workplace, without hampering healthcare services @ANI @ians_india @MoHFW_INDIA @drharshvardhan pic.twitter.com/nyWlguxomL— FORDA INDIA (@FordaIndia) May 29, 2021
