SC Raps Ramdev and Balkrishna in Patanjali Misleading Ads Case

SC Raps Ramdev and Balkrishna in Patanjali Misleading Ads Case: During the hearing of the misleading ads case against Patanjali Ayurveda on Tuesday, the Supreme Court stressed the importance of protecting all consumer groups, including children, babies, and women. During the hearing, the bench asked whether the apology was the same size as the advertisements.

Also, the court noted that the ‘Union Government must wake up’ and take strong action.

This came ahead of the Supreme Court’s hearing over the misleading ads case against Patanjali Ayurveda on Tuesday.

The Court has asked Baba Ramdev and Patanjali MD Acharya Balkrishna to appear personally on Tuesday.

Justices Hima Kohli and Ahsanuddin Amanullah are currently hearing the matter.

The lawyers for Ramdev and Patanjali MD Acharya Balkrishna told the apex court on Tuesday that an unqualified apology would be issued in an additional ad.

During the hearing, Justice Kohli stated, “I want to see the actual size of the advertisement.” He then asked if the apology was of the same size as its advertisements.

“Now we are looking at everything… we are looking at children, babies, women, and no one can be taken for a ride and the Union government must wake up to this,” the bench said on Tuesday.

Patanjali has stated in an ad published in a national daily that it respects the Supreme Court’s statue. The ad read, “We tender our heartfelt apology for the mistakes committed in publishing advertisements and holding press conferences despite assurances from our lawyers. We commit not to repeat this mistake.”

In an April 2 ruling, the court strongly criticised Ramdev and Balkrishna, dismissing their apology as a “lip service”.

However, the SC refused to accept the affidavits offering unconditional apologies and asserted that it was “not blind” and “didn’t want to be generous”.

In two separate affidavits filed with the apex court, Ramdev and Balkrishna apologized unqualifiedly for the “breach of the statement” recorded in the November 21 last year order.
