The claim that Dr Mujahid Hussain, an Ayush Ministry doctor dismissed for trying to ban Patanjali's Coronil is fake

  • Share


Ayush Ministry has clarified that no doctor or Medical officer has been removed in recent times.

On June 23, Baba Ramdev's Patanjali Ayurveda launched a Corona kit with the medicines, "Coronil and Swasari", claiming 100 percent favorable results during trials. But soon after the launch, the government asked Patanjali to stop advertising the medicines until they were examined. The Ministry of Ayush also asked the firm to provide the details.

Amid all this, a claim became viral on social media platforms that Dr. Mujahid Hussai, an Ayush Ministry doctor, has been dismissed for trying to ban Patanjali's 'Coronil' medicine.

A Twitter user named Pushpendra Kulshreshtra tweeted "Finally, Ayush Ministry has dismissed Dr. Mujahid Hussain for banning Patanjali's Coronil medicine. People like Hussain are the ones who spread Jihad and defame Ayurveda while being in the system." (translated from Hind)

This tweet received over 4700 retweets. 

Another Twitter user wrote, "Dr. MUJAHID HUSSAIN has been dismissed from aayush mantralaya who was trying to stop CORONIL medicine in using corona treatment. now coronil can be used in corona treatment approved. jy hind jy bharat ayurveda is great."

A similar claim is doing rounds on Facebook as well. 

The truth behind the claim 

After this claim went viral, the Press Information Bureau's fact-checking arm dismissed the claim saying that in recent times, no doctor or medical officer has been removed from any duty or service.

PIB fact check wrote, Claim: In a Twitter message citing an incident recently, a doctor has been removed from the Ministry of AYUSH. #PIBFactCheck. According to the Ministry of AYUSH, in recent times, no doctor or medical officer has been removed from any duty or service. (translated from Hindi)

Also, no such media reports on the incident have mentioned the name of 'Dr. Mujahid Hussain or that he has been dismissed."

In conclusion, the claim that Dr. Mujahid Hussain, an Ayush Ministry doctor, has been dismissed for trying to ban Patanjali's 'Coronil' medicine is Fake.
