“Allopathy is a stupid, lame science. First, hydroxychloroquine failed. Then, Remdesivir, Ivermectin and plasma therapy failed. Other antibiotics including Fabiflu and steroids too failed,” – in yet another controversial statement, Baba Ramdev blamed Allopathy medicine for the deaths of people.
The Indian Medical Association and other medical communities strongly condemned Ramdev’s ‘unscientific’ statement and even said that they will move to court if the Center doesn’t take any action.
Take a look at the video-

The doctors’ body said in a statement, Ramdev should be prosecuted under the Epidemic Diseases Act as “untutored” statements are “a threat to the literate society of the country as well as to the poor people falling prey to him”

The IMA said, “Ramdev deserves to be prosecuted for disobeying and causing danger to the life of many by making them believe to not to take the advice of allopathy doctors.”
“The IMA demands and resolves if the minister (Harsh Vardhan) is not taking suo moto action we will be forced to resort to democratic means of struggle to propagate the truth to the common man and knock the doors of the judiciary to get due to justice,” it said.
It alleged that Ramdev is trying to take advantage of the situation and create a sense of fear and frustration among the people at large.
Earlier, in a video that was widely shared on social media platforms, from a Yoga session he led, Baba Ramdev had said: “God has given Oxygen for free, take it. The whole universe is filled with oxygen.”
