Yoga prodigy Ramdev baba on Monday asked the Indian Medical Association (IMA) around 25 questions, after his statement has been forced to be withdrawn, in which he was questioning about the efficacy of allopathic medicines.
On his Twitter handle, Ramdev posed 25 questions to IMA, which had been related to his video clip running down allopathy treatment for COVID-19. He asked IMA if allopathy medicines offered permanent relief from hypertension (BP) and type-1 and type- 2 diabetes.
Ramdev further asks if allopathy had medicines for fatty liver and liver cirrhosis. Adding it as a statement he said that-
“Like you found a cure for TB and chicken pox, look for treatments for liver ailments. After All, allopathy is now 200 years old.”
Furthermore, he added in his questionnaire that the does pharmacy industry have permanent treatment for thyroid, arthritis, colitis and asthma. He further asked what non-surgical remedy the pharma industry has for heart blockage. And also asks if there is a treatment for cholesterol or not.
The yoga guru then starts to list on to modern day ailments such as Parkinson’s disease and asked if allopathy had any painless cure to treat infertility as well as to reverse ageing and increase hemoglobin or blood related cells. Or did allopathy have such rejuvenating capacities for even the elderly.
Pointing out the severe problem of migraine he asked that if allopathy had any cure for migraine, or did they have any treatment for constipation or that of bloating amnesia that too without any side effects! Later on, he made a statement by saying that-
“Doctors should not fall ill at all if allopathy is all powerful and ‘sarvagun sampanna’ (which translates to having all good qualities.)”

Exactly what happened was that on Monday, Ramdev was asked to withdraw a statement made in a viral video clip in which he is heard phrasing that “lakhs and lakhs of people have died from taking allopathic medicines for COVID-19 and the allopathy even has many major and fatal side effects too.” In the video he also points at some of the most prominent medicines used in the current COVID-19 treatment.
The remarks which were made by Ramdev Baba stirred tremendous protests from the doctors’ association. Keeping that in consideration, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan asked him to withdraw the “extremely unfortunate” statement so that the protest in doctor’s association can stop.
