Doctors demand action against Ramdev for insensible remarks on modern medicine

Ahmedabad: The Indian Medical Association Gujarat Unit and Ahmedabad Medical Association on Monday submitted separate memorandums to Ahmedabad city police demanding an FIR against Yoga guru Baba Ramdev for his comments on allopathy and vaccines.

They called for an FIR against the Patanjali co-founder owner under the Epidemic Diseases Act and Disaster Management Act. Furthermore, AMA president Kirit Gadhavi sought sedition charges against Ramdev for downplaying the COVID vaccine's importance.

"We have accepted the memorandums given by the IMA and the AMA. However, the issue they have raised is beyond our jurisdiction," said Deputy Commissioner of Police, Zone-1, Ravindra Patel, while adding that FIRs won't be lodged in the city.

"Ramdev talked rubbish about modern medicine. He even said people need not take a vaccine against coronavirus. If people do not take the vaccine, it will be difficult to stop the third (coronavirus) wave. We want the police to take action against Ramdev for his comments," said Dr Devendra Patel, President, IMA-Gujarat.

While IMA alleged that Ramdev was trying to incite people against doctors, Dr Mona Desai, past president of AMA, alleged that Ramdev is misguiding people. Ramdev had earlier claimed that several people died after taking allopathy medicine and that allopathy is a "stupid science", much to the wrath of the medical fraternity countrywide.
