Netizens have started trending #ArrestRamdev on social media after he gave controversial remarks against allopathic medicine for the treatment of Covid-19 cases.
The matter became viral when the Indian Medical Association (IMA) Uttarakhand branch slapped a defamation notice of Rs 1,000 crore on yoga guru Ramdev over his remarks.
Responding to #ArrestRamdev, the yoga guru said, “Khair, arrest to unka baap bhi nahi kar sakta Ramdev ko” (Anyway, even their father can’t arrest Swami Ramdev).
Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on May 23 called yoga guru Ramdev’s statement on allopathic medicines “extremely unfortunate” and asked him to withdraw the remark, saying it disrespects ‘corona warriors’ and can break the morale of healthcare workers.
He also said that “through your statement you not only disrespected corona warriors but also deeply hurt the sentiments of countrymen”.
“Your statement on allopathy can break the morale of healthcare workers and weaken our fight against COVID-19,” Vardhan said and added that doctors are fighting day and night to save people’s lives.
On May 26, the Indian Medical Association appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take appropriate action under sedition and other charges against Baba Ramdev for allegedly “spearheading a misinformation campaign on COVID-19 vaccination”.
Ramdev falsely claimed that 10,000 doctors died despite taking two doses of vaccination, IMA mentioned.
‘Ramdev should be booked under sedition charges’, now the netizens are demanding and #arrestRamdev is all over the social media.
