In the video, Ramdev called the Allopathy branch of science as “stupid and diwaliya” and earlier he had accused modern medical practitioners as ‘murderers’. In May, Ramdev also mocked Covid-19 patients who were in desperate need of oxygen support and said that patients “just don’t know how to breathe properly” and are “spreading negativity” by complaining of a shortage of oxygen.
Following which the Indian Medical Association (IMA) vice president Dr Navjot Singh Dahiya lodged a complaint against the yoga guru at the Jalandhar police station and sought strict action against him. In his complaint, Dahiya accused Ramdev of using ‘defamatory and insulting language towards doctors’.
