'Are his (Ramdev's) magic concoctions put on the three phases of test trials mandatory before being marketed so widely and claimed to be alternative (not complementary) to the allopathic medicines?' questioned IMA president-elect Ajay Kumar. He was felicitated by the Bihar Chambers, this Sunday. He also expressed his unhappiness over the yogic gurus criticism of medical practitioners and allopathic medicines.

He further urged doctors to act consciously to restrict people like Ramdev from injuring the noble image of the medical profession. In yoga camp conducted last month, he had criticized that doctors were conducting unnecessary tests to earn more profit. In response to Mr. Kumar's statement, Baba Ramdev referred to him as 'sirfira', for challenging his healing powers.

'Is it not shameful that when the national president-elect of the IMA is ridiculed, association members remain silent? Ramdev Baba seems to be a very good businessman who has marketed yoga, pranayam (a form of yoga) and his magic concoctions very successfully. Ramdev has turned this classical art into pop music. Unfortunately he has taken the science of rejuvenation a little too far. Ramdev's claim of treating serious disease like cancer through yoga is wrong because it is not scientifically proven yet,' he said in a statement. He however agreed upon the benefits of yoga for health.

The yoga guru faced a storm earlier this year when Mrs. Brinda Karat (Communist Party of India-Marxist leader) accused him of contaminating ayurvedic medicinal preparations with animal and human skulls.
