Baba Ramdev, who is caught in a firestorm over his controversial remarks allegedly defaming allopathy and scientific medicines, has now said that no one can arrest him. A new video of the yoga guru surfaced recently in which he can be seen saying that no one has the courage to arrest him after Indian Medical Association called for his arrest on sedition charges for his remarks that “allopathy is a stupid science.”

One such video was shared by Congress leader Gaurav Pandhi on Twitter in which he tagged PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah wondering if any action will be taken against him.

The Indian Medical Association on May 22 sent a legal notice to yoga guru Baba Ramdev over his alleged statements against allopathy and "defaming" scientific medicine. In a video that was widely shared on social media, Ramdev is heard saying at a recent event that “allopathy ek stupid aur diwalilya science hai” (allopathy is such a stupid science)”. Besides, he also claimed that more people died due to modern medical treatments during the COVID-19 crisis than the coronavirus itself

However, the Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust has denied allegations by the IMA that Ramdev has misled people by making "unlearned" statements against allopathy and defamed scientific medicine. According to a Haridwar-based Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust statement, Yog Guru Ramdev was reading out a WhatsApp forwarded message in the video that has gone viral on social media.
