Srinagar, May 31, KDC: Doctors Association Kashmir shall hold statewide black day protest while bearing black bandages on June 1st 2021 “without hampering the patient care to voice their protest against statements of Baba Ramdev against corona warriors and modern medicine.
President of Doctors Association Kashmir Dr M Y Tak said that recent comments by Baba Ramdev wherein he says thousand doctors have died even after getting the double dose of vaccines. What kind of doctors are they, if they could not save themselves? has hurt the entire medical fraternity of this country .The statement of Baba Ramdev at a time when frontline Health care workers are waging a war against an invisible enemy, to utter such irresponsible & callous statements is highly condemnable.
Ever since WHO declared Covid-19 a global pandemic, it was the frontline HCWs who took up the challenge of meeting this killer invisible enemy head on, without caring for their own safety or of their family. But issuing such vitriolic & hateful statements against frontline Health workers mocks them & their sacrifice. Thousands of frontline HCWs have perished in this pandemic, instead of showing gratitude towards them, Ramdev was seen mocking them in the most shallow perverse manner.
General Secretary DAK Dr Owais H Dar said the battle against SARS CoV2 pandemic has been led by none other than our PM, it was he who celebrated the efforts & sacrifice of frontline Health care workers by asking Indians to clap & light diyas last year. The guidelines for Covid-19 treatment have been issued from time to time by MoHFW & ICMR. By challenging the treatment guidelines, Ramdev has raised a question mark on this Govt led by PM Modi ji & other government bodies itself.
Dr Mir Md Ashraf Sr Vice President DAK said that such irresponsible behavior has a negative impact on the covid management programs of the state. It is the job of Govt, MoHFW & ICMR to take him on & make him face the full force of law, said Dr Arshad H Trag vice president of DAK.
DAK appeals to Lieutenant Governor of UT of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha to instruct our government functionaries to take necessary action against Baba Ram Dev. He should face the consequences of his irresponsible & despicable public statements. (KDC)
