The Indian Medical Association will not tolerate Ayurvedic and AYUSH doctors practicing allopathy, said state president of Indian Medical Association (IMA) Dr H L Krishne Gowda.
After being felicitated during his official visit to Bhadravati chapter of IMA here on Sunday, DrKrishne Gowda told reporters that Ayurveda practitioners were demanding legalisation of prescribing allopathic medicines which was against the medical ethics. Each segment of medicine has its own ethics and allopathic doctors never ventured to prescribe Ayurvedic medicines to their patients although they respected Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy departments which are in vogue since ancient times in India, he said.
The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and AYUSH must intervene and put an end to the unscientific demand, he said.
