The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to stop the “misinformation campaign on vaccination by Ramdev”. The IMA has also urged the prime minister to take “appropriate action (against Ramdev) under the sedition” law.
In the letter addressed to PM Modi, IMA said it would like to “painfully” bring to your notice a “video claiming 10,000 doctors have died in spite of taking both the dose of (Covid-19) vaccine and lakhs of people have died due to allopathic medicine”.
It said these allegations were made by Ramdev, and that the video has gone viral on social media.
“Indian Medical Association is proactively spearheading your commitment to enforcing vaccination to all above 18 years, as the tool to overcome the corona pandemic. When you initiated the vaccine rollout, IMA leaders across the country stood first to get the vaccine and by this dispelled the vaccine hesitancy,” IMA said in its letter
It added that members of the modern medicine professionals follow the guidelines and protocols issued by the Union health ministry through ICMR or the national task force in the treatment offered to millions of people.
“If someone is claiming that the allopathic medicine has killed the people, it is an attempt to challenge the Ministry who has issued the protocol for treatment to us,” the letter said.
