'Give death penalty if we...': Yoga guru Ramdev on Supreme Court warning Patanjali

A day after the Supreme Court cautioned Patanjali Ayurveda against airing 'false' and 'misleading' advertisements, Baba Ramdev alleged a "gang of doctors" in modern medicine of running propaganda against the company.Addressing the media on Wednesday, Ramdev, the co-founder of Patanjali Ayurveda, said, "A group of doctors is propagating against yoga, Ayurveda, naturopathy, and our Sanatana values. The false propaganda claims that there is no solution in the synthetic world for diseases like blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, liver disease, kidney failure, etc."Baba Ramdev said his company has substantial real-world and scientific evidence of curing people through Patanjali’s medicines.
“In yoga, Ayurveda, and naturopathy, with integrated and evidence-based treatment systems, we cure diseases like type 1 diabetes, thyroid issues, high blood pressure, normalising sugar levels, obesity, and others. This is not false; this is true,” Ramdev claimed.
The entrepreneur-yoga guru said he respects the Supreme Court, the country's law, and the Constitution.“We are not engaging in false propaganda,” Ramdev said.
“If we are spreading false claims, impose core penalties. Give the death penalty; we are okay with it,” he added.
Ramdev also urged the authorities to take action against those who "propagate false propaganda".
