Patanjali Research Foundation Trust on February 24, 2021, attacked Indian Medical Association (IMA) and said its remarks were not invited.
This comes hours after the Indian Medical Association slammed Union Health Minister, Dr. Harsh Vardhan, for endorsing Divya Coronil table manufactured by the Patanjali against the COVID-19 pandemic.
When Patanjali founder Baba Ramdev claimed that his Coronil is a part of treatment against COVID-19 and that the Coronil has got approval from the World Health Organization. His claims prompted WHO to dismiss them.
“Our honourable health minister never undermined modern medicine. Rather his presence in the event showed his sincere efforts as a health minister to provide acceptability to other forms of medicinal systems,” Patanjali said.
“We have shared all our research data with the Ministry of Ayush, Government of India. The ministry has approved and categorically agreed for Coronil as medicine for Covid-19 management,” Patanjali said.
“Coronil is an evidence-based medicine with integration of scientifically validated research evidences under pre-clinical and clinical expertise. The composition of this medicine has been disclosed to public at large, and had been thoroughly reviewed and scrutinised by the competent licensing authorities,” it said.
