Should ayurveda doctors be allowed to practise allopathy?


I shall be much obliged if you kindly publish this letter in your widely circulated paper.

    Ayurveda doctors are NOT allowed to practise allopathy?
    Why ? Answer is here –
    1. Their syllabus does not include Allopathic medicine (they only read it as an extra curricular activity)

    2. Judiciary had made it clearly evidenced it in may judgements
    See the slides 25 to 28. After which there is no suspicion.
    All previous notiifcation and orders before this were quashed
    3. CCIM has also accepted these facts (See slide 22)
    Aur kitne saboot chahiyee – puri presentation dekh kar suiside mat kar lena
