delhi high court on baba ramdev: Delhi High Court issues summons to Baba Ramdev in allopathy case
- Ramdev’s trouble increased in the case of wrong information against allopathy
- Delhi High Court gives Ramdev four weeks to file his reply
- The judge said, any kind of relief will be considered later
Baba Ramdev’s troubles may increase. The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued summons to a yoga guru for allegedly spreading false information against allopathy. Justice C Harishankar has given Ramdev four weeks to file his reply on the suit. He made it clear that he was not expressing any opinion on the merits of the allegations in the suit against Ramdev and any relief would be considered at a later stage.
Justice Harishankar told Ramdev’s counsel Rajeev Nair, “I have seen the video clip (of Ramdev). Seeing the video clip, it seems that your client is ridiculing the allopathy treatment protocol. He has ridiculed people for prescribing steroids and even going to the hospital. Seeing the clip, it is definitely a case of filing a suit.
Senior advocate Nair said he had no objection to the summons being issued in the case, but he opposed the allegations. Nair requested the court, “There are three parts to the suit. Coronil, Defamation and Confusion Against Vaccination. The court can issue notice only in case of defamation.
The judge said, ‘I am not passing any order. Please file your written statement. Say no case is made out. Apart from Ramdev, Acharya Balkrishna and Patanjali Ayurved have also been asked to respond by issuing summons in the matter. The court also issued notices to social media platforms Google, Facebook and Twitter.
Know the whole matter
Three Resident Doctors Association of All India Institute of Medical Sciences at Rishikesh, Patna and Bhubaneswar as well as Resident Doctors Association of Chandigarh Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Resident Doctors Association of Punjab; The Resident Doctors Association of Lala Lajpat Rai Memorial Medical College, Meerut and Telangana Junior Doctors Association had filed the petition in the High Court earlier this year.
He alleged that Ramdev was misleading the public and falsely projecting that allopathy was responsible for the deaths of many people infected with Kovid-19. He had reportedly said that allopathic doctors were causing death of patients. Senior advocate Akhil Sibal, appearing for these organisations, submitted that amid a pandemic, the yoga guru had made baseless claims of a cure for COVID-19 from Coronil, while it was licensed only as an ‘immunity boosting drug’ .
