A Delhi Court slammed the Indian Medical Association (IMA) President, Dr. Johnrose Jayalal not to misuse the IMA platform for propagation of Christianity and cautioned him that loose comments is not warranted from a person chairing a responsible post.

The Additional District Judge, Ajay Goel passed the order in a suit filed against him for defaming Hinduism ‘by propagating Christianity in the garb of proving superiority of Allopathic medicines over Ayurveda in treatment of Covid-19 patients’.

Complainant Rohit Jha had averred in his petition that, Johnrose Jayalal is misusing his position as IMA chief and misleading the people of India to convert Hindus to Christianity. Jha had sought injunction from the court to restrain Jayalal from writing, speaking in the media or publishing any content that is defamatory to Hindu religion or Ayurveda. The complainant had cited various interviews given by Jayalal to Christian organisations which clearly evinced his hatred for Hinduism and Ayurveda as also recorded his statements on how to use the Covid pandemic to convert patients to Christianity in hospitals.

The Court said in an order on June 3rd, “He shall not use the platform of IMA for propagating any religion and rather shall concentrate for welfare of the medical fraternity and progress in the medical field”.

The Court also schooled the IMA chief by stating, “Mazhab nahi sikhata aapas main bair rakhn; hindi hai hum watan hai Hindustan humara”. The Court further asked him to not to indulge in any activity contrary to the principles enshrined in the Constitution of India and maintain the dignity of his position.

Thus, the Court asked him to concentrate on his primary duties as a doctor and not unfairly misuse medical profession for conversion activities and spreading hatred against any religion.
