Supreme Court warns Patanjali Ayurveda regarding misleading advertisements – Bollywood Keeda

New Delhi: The case related to the misleading advertisement of Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurveda was heard again in the Supreme Court today. The case was heard by the division bench of Justice Ahsanuddin Amanullah and Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra. The Supreme Court has taken a tough stance against Patanjali Ayurveda. During the hearing in the court on Tuesday, he said that publishing advertisements despite orders is not right at all. Justice Ahsanuddin Amanullah himself came to the court with the newspaper.

According to Bar and Bench, Justice Ahsanuddin said, “Despite our order, you have the courage to bring this advertisement. Are you wooing the court?” Justice Ahsanuddin Amanullah further said, “I have brought the printout and annexures. We are going to pass very strict orders today. Look at this advertisement. How can you say that you will do everything right? Despite our warnings, you are issuing advertisements saying that our products are better than chemical based medicines?”

The court further said that the central government should also take action on this. Let us tell you that on 29 November 2023, the Supreme Court had shown strictness on the petition of the Indian Medical Association objecting to the advertisements of Patanjali Ayurveda and the statements of its owner Baba Ramdev. Hearing the Indian Medical Association’s petition against Baba Ramdev’s statements and advertisements regarding allopathy and its medicines and vaccinations, a bench of Justice Ahsanuddin Amanullah and Justice Prashant Kumar Mishra held Patanjali guilty of publishing misleading claims and advertisements about allopathy. Patanjali was reprimanded.

The bench has warned of imposing heavy fine on Patanjali for such advertisements and statements in future. Justice Amanullah said that if this is done in future, a fine of Rs 1 crore per product advertisement will be imposed. The court has asked Patanjali not to make any misleading advertisements or false claims against allopathic medicines and vaccinations. The court cautioned that neither any such advertisement should be published nor any statement should be made in the media.

Let us tell you that the Indian Medical Association had filed a petition against the misleading advertisements of Patanjali Ayurveda. The petition demands action against Baba Ramdev and Patanjali Ayurved for defaming evidence-based medicine. In the last hearing, the court had ordered Patanjali not to publish such advertisements. The court had warned that for doing so, a fine of Rs 1 crore could be imposed.

It is alleged that Baba Ramdev’s company Patanjali Ayurveda had published misleading advertisements in newspapers against the evidence-based modern medical system and claimed to cure patients with its medicine. Last year too, on the petition of the Indian Medical Association, the court had issued a notice and reprimanded Baba Ramdev for giving statements against modern medical systems like allopathy. The court had then said that it cannot allow this to become a battle of allopathy versus Ayurveda.
