FIRs against allopathy comment: Ramdev moves SC seeking suspension of procedures | India News


NEW DELHI: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev moved the Supreme Court on Wednesday and requested a stay of proceedings in multiple FIRs filed against him for calling allopathy ‘ineffective’ against Covid-19.
In his petition, the yoga proponent requested a suspension of the proceedings in the FIRs filed by the Patna and Raipur branches of the Indian Medical Association (IMA).
Furthermore, he sought a transfer of these complaints to Delhi.

In a controversial video, Ramdev was allegedly overheard saying that “allopathy is stupid science” and drugs like Remdesivir, Fabiflu and other drugs approved by the Comptroller General of Drugs of India have failed to treat Covid-19 patients. ”.
In May, doctors upset by his comments watched a black day in protest and sought an open apology or action against him.
His comments caused massive outrage, and the IMA sent him a legal notice.
IMA also said that the Union’s health minister should step forward and take action against his “unlearned” statements.
It was after a nudge from the Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan that he officially made an apology and also withdrew his controversial comments on modern medicinal methods.
Ramdev’s firm, Patanjali, was quick to defend him and claimed that the statement attributed to him by the IMA was false.
Ramdev has “great respect” for the doctors and support staff who have been working around the clock during such a challenging time in the pandemic, “said a statement issued by the Haridwar-based Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust.
