Supreme Court warns Ramdev’s Patanjali of Rs 1 crore fine for each false claim in its advertisements

“The Supreme Court told Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali products to stop advertising false cures. They warned that if any product claims to cure a disease but can’t, they’ll have to pay ₹1 crore for each wrong claim.

The Court wants Patanjali to stop misleading ads that fool people about medical treatments. They’re serious about this and want to find a solution without arguing between different types of medicine.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) said Patanjali spread lies about COVID-19 vaccines and made fun of people looking for oxygen during COVID-19. Ramdev even said cancer cases increased after COVID, which got him in trouble. He asked the Court for protection.

The Court will talk about this again in 2024 after the government suggests ways to fix the problem of false medical ads.”

Following the Supreme Court’s caution to Patanjali Ayurveda regarding misleading ads, Baba Ramdev responded by accusing a section of modern medicine practitioners of orchestrating a campaign against his company.

Speaking to the media, Ramdev emphasized, “There’s a group of doctors spreading misinformation against yoga, Ayurveda, naturopathy, and our traditional values. They falsely claim that synthetic medicine has no solution for conditions like blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, liver disease, kidney failure, and more.” He asserted that Patanjali possesses substantial real-world evidence and scientific backing for its medicines.

Ramdev claimed, “Through yoga, Ayurveda, and naturopathy, we’ve effectively treated type 1 diabetes, thyroid issues, high blood pressure, balanced sugar levels, tackled obesity, and more. This isn’t false; it’s factual.”

Expressing respect for the Supreme Court, the law, and the Constitution, Ramdev maintained, “We aren’t promoting false information. If found otherwise, impose severe penalties, even the death penalty; we accept it.”

He urged authorities to take action against those spreading misinformation. “For five years, there’s been a smear campaign against yoga, naturopathy, Ayurveda, and our age-old medicinal traditions,” he alleged.

Ramdev’s response underscores the ongoing debate between traditional and modern medical practices in India, raising questions about the promotion and validation of various healthcare systems.
