‘Fine us for ₹1000 crore, also ready for death penalty if..’ Baba Ramdev after SC warns of misleading advertisements


After being reprimanded by the Supreme Court for advertisements, Patanjali Ayurved’s co-founder Yoga guru Swami Ramdev on Wednesday remained adamant on his company’s claims and said that they are not “liars”. 
He also claimed that a few doctors have come together to run a propaganda against him and his company, Patanjali, to defame it and the century-old practice of Yoga.

“Since yesterday, on different media sites, one news story has gone viral that the Supreme Court (SC) reprimanded Patanjali. SC said that if you do false propaganda, then you will be fined. We respect SC. But we are not doing any false propaganda,” said Yog Guru Ramdev during a media interaction on Wednesday. 

He also went ahead and said that if his company is spreading lies, then he is ready to face monetary and even death penalty. In case he manages to prove the claims made in Patanjali advertisements, then those spreading false propaganda must be punished, he added.

“If we are liars, then fine us 1000 crore, and we are also ready for the death penalty. But if we are not liars, then punish the ones who are really spreading the false propaganda,” said Ramdev on Wednesday.

He further stated that the ayurvedic products released by Patanjali have all the necessary required clinical evidence.

“In the last few days, there is propaganda going on to target Swami Ramdev and Patanjali. It is just to defame the practices of centuries-old yoga claiming that there is nothing in Ayurveda and your organs will be damaged such as kidney and liver. This is clear propaganda. We have research evidence, pre and post-clinical evidence. There is propaganda going on to defame Patanjali,” he said.
