NEW DELHI: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev on Tuesday once again issued an apology to the Supreme Court in connection with the Patanjali misleading advertisement case, assuring the court that such incidents will not occur in the future.
During the proceedings, Ramdev and Patanjali Ayurved Ltd MD Balkrishna acknowledged their guilt in violating the court order. They requested the court to allow them to make amends by voluntarily taking certain measures, including issuing a public apology for their actions.
The Supreme Court, however, strongly criticized Patanjali, stating, “You are doing good work but you can’t degrade allopathy.You are not so innocent that you didn’t know what we said in earlier order.”
The apex court granted Ramdev, Balkrishna, and Patanjali a one-week period to issue a public statement regarding the advertisements case. The matter is scheduled for the next hearing on April 23. The Supreme Court informed Ramdev’s counsel, “We are not saying at this stage we are letting them off the hook.”
Last week, the Supreme Court had rejected an affidavit submitted by Patanjali, which offered an ‘unconditional apology’ in the misleading advertisement case.
The Supreme Court emphasized that its primary concern is the health of common people who fall victim to deceptive advertisements and are enticed by companies to buy their products. The court clarified that its intention was not to single out anyone but to convey the message that violations of the law will not be tolerated.
