Share on:

Today (April 24, 2024), after Supreme Court’s rap, Patanjali Ayurved published a fresh ‘unconditional public apology,’ regarding a contempt case for publishing a misleading medical advertisement, in a leading newspaper ‘The Indian Express’. The apology published today was bigger than the one published earlier by Patanjali Ayurved in 67 newspapers. On April 23, 2024, the  Supreme Court (SC) of India asked Patanjali Ayurved, Baba Ramdev, and Managing Director Acharya Balkrishna, whether the apology published was of the same size as the advertisement. The apology published today states,

“In wake of on going matter before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India (Writ Petition C. No. 645/2022), we in our individual capacity as well as on behalf of the Company, unconditionally apologize for the non-compliance or disobedience of directions/orders of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.

We unconditionally extend the apology for holding meeting/press conference dates 22.11.2023. We earnestly apologize for the mistake made in publishing our advertisements and it is our whole-hearted commitment that such errors will not be repeated. We undertake to abide by directions and instructions of the Hon’ble Court with due care and utmost sincerity. We undertake to uphold the majesty of the court and comply with applicable laws and directions of the Hon’ble Court of law/relevant authorities.”
