Baba Ramdev Controversy: All you need to know

When people is facing shortage of oxygen face in India. Baba Ramdev mock the people “God has given us free oxygen, why don’t we breathe that? How can there be a shortage when God has filled the atmosphere with oxygen? Fools are looking for oxygen cylinders our two lungs is a oxygen cylinder. Just breathe the free oxygen. Why are you complaining about shortage of oxygen and beds and crematoriums?” he said.

Union Minister Dr.Harsh Vardhan on Sunday 23 may 2021 has written a letter to Baba Ramdev to take back his statements on allopathic medicines and called it “unfortunate and inappropriate”

After that Baba Ramdev took to his Twitter account and issued an apology.

In his tweet, Baba Ramdev wrote, “माननीय श्री @drharshvardhan जी आपका पत्र प्राप्त हुआ, उसके संदर्भ में चिकित्सा पद्दतियों के संघर्ष के इस पूरे विवाद को खेदपूर्वक विराम देते हुए मैं अपना वक्तव्य वापिस लेता हूँ और यह पत्र आपको संप्रेषित कर रहा हूं (Honorable mr @drharshvardhan. Yes, I received your letter, With respect to this, I withdraw my statement regretting this entire controversy of the struggle of medical practices and I am sending this letter to you).”

Even after apology Baba Ramdev recently said that tens of thousands died of Covid after taking modern medicines and mocked patients for trying to get oxygen cylinders.

Agitated doctors and health care authorities across the country are now calling for his head, with the Indian Medical Association (IMA) even serving him with a six-page defamation notice and demanding an apology within 15 days. Baba Ramdev, who has a major fan following with millions of supporters idolizing him, must now comply or risk paying Rs 1,000 crores as compensation unless he has a trick up his sleeve.

Now doctors put black bands on their arm to show protest against Baba Ramdev statement. Doctors are played the vital role in this Covid-19 pandemic. Homeopathic, Allopathic and Ayurvedic has its own important none is superior or inferior to each others.
