Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Saturday lashed out at Yoga guru Ramdev for his remarks on allopathy and demanded the Union health minister Harsh Vardhan to prosecute him under Epidemic Diseases Act 1897 or accept his accusations and dissolve the modern medical facility.
“Enough is enough,” IMA said slamming Ramdev for what it called “repeatedly taking advantage of the situation and creating fear among the public to sell his illegal drugs.”
“When such idolised personal are making vitriolic comments, questioning the authority and integrity of the whole architecture of health ministry, the health minister, who himself is a practicing modern medicine allopathic postgraduate and the head of this ministry, should either accept the challenge and accusation of this gentleman and dissolve the modern medicine facility or boldly face and prosecute the person for his words of arson on the sovereignty of the country and book him under the Epidemic Diseases Act to save millions of people from such unscientific utterances,” IMA wrote to the health minister.
The apex medical body hits out at Ramdev over a video circulating in social media, in which he said, ‘Allopathy ek aisi stupid aur diwaliya science hai’. The IMA also said that he has called modern medical doctors “murderers” in the presence of the health minister while releasing his medicines.
