First Ramdev criticises modern medicine, now he wants to open MBBS college


New Delhi: After Ramdev created a controversy by allegedly referring to allopathy as a ‘stupid science’, he now says he plans to open an allopathy medical college, as per Zee News.

He said his company based in Haridwar, Patanjali Yogpeeth, will set it up very soon and create a fresh crop of doctors.

These MBBS graduates will be trained in allopathic medicine, he added.

Clarifying his controversial comments, Ramdev said it was not an official statement and really blown out of proportion.

“No prejudice against anybody” He maintains not having any prejudice against anybody.

The IMA was not happy with him. They filed a police complaint and also issued a Rs 1000 crore defamation suit.

Ramdev claimed 10,000 allopathic doctors had died despite being vaccinated.

IMA said India lost 753 doctors during the first wave and 513 so far during the second wave.

“None in the first wave could receive the vaccine and the majority who had died in the second wave also could not take their vaccine for various reasons,” said its official letter.

Black day on June 1 against Ramdev comments
Taking a stand against a series of unfounded and false claims made by Yoga guru Baba Ramdev against modern medicine and doctors, the medical fraternity across the country is marking a ‘black day’ on Tuesday.

Led by the members of the Federation of Resident Doctors Associations (FORDA) doctors, India observed a black day seeking an open apology from him or action against him.

As the controversy over his comments against allopathic medicines and doctors is drawing severe ire, yoga guru Ramdev said during a yoga session that he has a target of converting 1,000 allopathic doctors to Ayurveda in a year’s time.
