Ramdev has “irreparably damaged the Indian government’s efforts to contain the pandemic,” the IMA said.
“People who create confusion during an epidemic regarding national treatment protocols and the national vaccination program are traitors and anti-nationals. They are anti-people and anti-humanity. They do not deserve mercy,” he said.
The IMA has extended its support to the black belt protest called by the Federation of Resident Medical Associations (FORDA) and other associations of doctors and resident doctors in the country against Ramdev.
IMA Likely To Drop Complaint Against Yoga Guru Ramdev
The IMA said modern medicine is on the front lines of the fight against the pandemic and 1,300 doctors have sacrificed their lives for the nation.
From medical students and resident physicians to emergency and intensive care physicians, each and every physician has been deployed in defense of the people, the letter said.
“Creating confusion in the minds of the people against the national Covid protocols and the national vaccination program is an anti-national act of heinous proportions. The IMA has demanded to regard it as sedition and to prosecute (Ramdev) under the Management Act of Disasters “. said the association.
“Calling modern medicine a stupid science is a totally different criminal act. Government inaction would seriously harm doctors fighting the pandemic,” the letter said.
The Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust on May 22 denied the IMA’s allegations that the yoga guru has misled people by making “unlearned” statements against allopathy and defaming modern scientific medicine.
Citing a video circulating on social media, the IMA had said that Ramdev is seen saying that “allopathy ek aisi stupid science aur diwalilya hai … (allopathy is such a stupid science)”.
Ramdev has “increased respect” for the doctors and support staff who have been working around the clock during such a challenging time in the pandemic, Haridwar-based Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust said in a statement.
“Swami jee has no ill will against modern science and good practitioners of modern medicine. What is attributed to him is false and void,” read the statement signed by the general secretary of Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust, Acharya Balakrishna.
Ramdev later withdrew his statement on allopathy after a strong letter from the Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan.
Claiming that Ramdev supporters have attempted “malicious attack diversionary tactics” against the IMA and its national president, the medical corps said nothing will divert it from its resolve to nail “this anti-national.” The IMA’s activities are within all four angles of the law, he said.
“The total number of COVID-19 patients in the country so far is 2.78 million rupees and 2.54 million rupees have been recovered. Our case fatality rate is still 1.16%. Even with the limitations From the official statistics, it can be seen that Indian doctors, nurses and health care workers have struggled tirelessly, “he said.
“Countless children and relatives of doctors have been infected. Trivializing these martyrs and warriors is sacrilege. IMA watches the nation to draw its own conclusions. History will record the services of its doctors. Posterity will also name the criminals. , “the IMA said in its letter.
