In a recent development, the Supreme Court expressed strong dissatisfaction with the government’s lack of action in addressing the issue of “misleading and false” advertisements by Patanjali Ayurved, a company co-owned by yoga guru Ramdev. “The government is seemingly turning a blind eye,” remarked the Supreme Court.

Conveying concern that the entire nation is being misled by such advertising, the court emphasized the need for immediate government intervention. “This is highly unfortunate, and the government must take prompt action,” stated the bench.

As a response to the situation, the bench instructed the company to halt all electronic and print advertisements containing “misleading” information about its medicines with immediate effect.

In a prior warning issued in November of the preceding year, the Supreme Court had advised Patanjali Ayurved against disseminating “false” and “misleading” claims in its medicine-related advertisements.

The court recalled the remarks made by the bench, which was led by the then Chief Justice NV Ramana, expressing respect for Swami Ramdev Baba for popularizing yoga. However, it cautioned against criticizing the allopathic system and highlighted the accusatory nature of the advertisements, labeling all doctors as potential threats. The retired Chief Justice questioned the advertisements’ content, emphasizing the need for a solution to the problem of misleading medical advertisements.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) brought attention to various advertisements projecting allopathy and doctors negatively. The IMA asserted that companies involved in ayurvedic medicine production were making disparaging statements to mislead the public. The advertisements reportedly suggested that even medical practitioners themselves were facing fatal consequences despite resorting to modern medicines, as mentioned by the IMA’s legal representative.
