It is understandable that in a function organised by the Ayurveda Practitioners, the Minister in charge of Ayush would praise the virtues of Ayurveda.
But it is not comprehensible when the Minister’s pitch reaches insaneness.
While inaugurating an Ayurveda research centre at Kolhapur, AYUSH minister, Shri Shripad Naik said: “Ayurveda is one of the oldest medical systems in the world and we should be proud of it as it has been practised since ancient times. How can anyone oppose it when the whole world is showing interest in ayurveda and trying to find remedies of diseases that even modern medical science cannot discover?”
Absolutely no issues.
Now the minister goes on to say: “ “We will ensure that the medium of education for ayurveda students is Sanskrit. All literature related to ayurveda are in Sanskrit.”
I do not know whether the minister himself know Sanskrit.
He goes on to say what should not be said: “Some ayurveda practitioners have told me that doctors prescribing allopathy medicines often advise patients not to opt for ayurveda. Such doctors are anti-nationals.”
I would like to know when the Minister and his family members fall sick, do they not take allopathc treatment? If they do….then they are all anti nationals.
Minister Saheb….talk sensible things. The higher the post, greater is the responsibility.
