Delhi High Court Issues Summons to Ramdev over Coronil Statements

Ramdev summoned by Delhi high court

The Delhi High Court on Thursday issued summons to yoga guru Ramdev on a suit by Delhi Medical Association (DMA).

In its petition, the medical association, DMA stated that Ramdev’s company Patanjali is propagating false information about its Coronil kit that it is a cure for the Covid 19 disease.
The DMA, on behalf of its doctor members, stated that Ramdev’s statement in public is damaging the reputations of science and doctors.
“This is a suit for civil rights of doctors,” said advocate Rajiv Dutta, who represented the DMA.

The Delhi High Court has also asked Ramdev’s counsel orally to tell him not to make any provocative statement till the next date of hearing on July 13 and respond to the suit.
The founder of Patanjali Group, Ramdev, is in limelight over comments against the allopathic system of medicine, including Covid 19 vaccines.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) took strong objection to the comments made by Ramdev last month.
Citing a video circulating on social media, the IMA said Ramdev claimed that allopathy is a “stupid science”.
The medical body shot off a letter to the Centre, asking strong action should be taken against the yoga guru for denigrating the tireless services rendered by doctors during the Covid-19 pandemic in which many medical practitioners have also succumbed.

Union health minister Harsh Vardhan wrote a letter to Ramdev in which he called the comments “unfortunate”.
Though Ramdev withdrew his comments and in reply to Vardhan said he wants to put the matter to rest, the IMA has been putting pressure on the government to take action against him.
