Allopathy doctors up in arms against Baba Ramdev comments
Jalandhar: Alleging that Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev intentionally and deliberately violated the direction for the treatment of Covid-19 patients by indulging in propaganda suggesting people not to take treatment from the doctors and using defamatory language towards the medical practitioners, the National Vice President of Indian Medical Association (IMA), Dr Navjot Singh Dahiya has lodged an FIR against him.
Dahiya demanded a high-level inquiry and registration of a criminal case against him, and called him the most "insensitive and inhumane" for "mocking and blaming" Covid victims for not breathing properly and even blamed medical fertility for misguiding COVID patients.
"He gave advice to the Covid-19 patients against the directions issued by the Government of India for the treatment of Covid patients and in that way pushed the patients towards their deathbeds without any treatment from the hospitals. By doing so, he has clearly violated the directions issued by the government regarding the code of conduct and other orders passed by the authorities and in that way is liable to be punished under the provision of Disaster Management Act of 2005 and Epidemic Disease Act of 1897," IMA national VP said in his complaint.
Dr Dahiya said that Baba Ramdev deliberately tried to misguide the people and even blamed the hard-working doctors for excessively medicating the Covid patients leading to their deaths.
"In their propaganda and advertisements, he and Balkrishna claimed to treat the patients of Covid-19 without any authority, even without having any license or professional degree and in that way violated the law of the land and sold their illegal product of medicine by stating that it is useful for the treatment of Covid-19 and in that way committed cheating with the public and extortion the money from the public," Dahiya alleged in the complaint submitted to the police.
