“Didn’t Give False Ads, Ready For Death Sentence If Guilty”: Patanjali

Patanjali Ayurved, under the leadership of yoga teacher Ramdev, responded to the Supreme Court’s recent caution against false advertising, asserting that it does not partake in misleading claims. The company went further to state that it would willingly accept any penalty imposed by the Supreme Court, including a severe one like a “death sentence,” if found guilty of disseminating false information about its products. Patanjali emphasized its commitment to transparency and cited a substantial database with real-world evidence, preclinical and clinical support for its claims.

The Supreme Court’s caution came after a plea from the Indian Medical Association (IMA), accusing Patanjali of a smear campaign against the vaccination drive and modern medicines. The court had issued notices to the Union health ministry, the Ministry of Ayush, and Patanjali Ayurved Ltd. Patanjali, in response, reiterated its respect for the Supreme Court and its willingness to abide by any penalties if found guilty of false advertising.

Patanjali Ayurved defended its products, claiming to have successfully treated thousands of individuals with various ailments, including BP, sugar, thyroid issues, asthma, arthritis, obesity, liver and kidney failure, and cancer. The company maintained that its therapies, rooted in Yoga, Ayurveda, Naturopathy, Panchakarma, Shatkarma, fasting, and integrated treatment systems, have contributed to these positive outcomes.

The company also highlighted its research efforts, citing the Patanjali Research Foundation as the world’s best research center on Ayurveda. It claimed that renowned scientists conduct research using over 3,000 protocols, resulting in close to 500 research papers published in prestigious journals worldwide. Patanjali accused some doctors in the medical sector of being stubborn and frustrated, opposing alternative therapies like Yoga, Ayurveda, and Naturopathy.

Patanjali Ayurved concluded by asserting that while synthetic medicines may control diseases, they cannot cure them, contrasting this with the approach of Yoga-Ayurveda. The company criticized certain practices within the medical field, alleging crimes committed by some practitioners, including the installation of fake pacemakers, kidney theft, unnecessary medication, and indiscriminate testing. Patanjali claimed to have actively fought against such practices, positioning itself against what it referred to as the medical and drug mafia.
