A case has been filed with the Ministry of Home Affairs against the National President of the Indian Medical Association, Dr John Rose Austin Jayalal, seeking action against him for abusing his power and possition to spread Christianity during the pandemic.

Complaint filed against IMA President for abusing his position to spread Christianity

The complaint says, “Indian Medical Association (IMA) is a registered society bearing registration no. 35 dated 17-05-1934 having its headquarters at IMA House, Indra Prastha Marg, New Delhi – 110002. The said organization is widely regarded as Guild of Indian Medical Practitioners in India is represented by its President Dr John Rose Austin Jayalal, National President and Chief Functionary of the society.

Legal Right Protection Forum, a legal-activism group, has written a detailed letter to the centre demanding strict action against Johnrose Austin Jayalal, accusing him of using the Covid-19 pandemic to convert patients to Christianity.

In its complaint, the LRPF sought revocation of Medical Practitioner’s License of IMA President John Jayalal, alleging that the controversial doctor has openly declared his intention of splitting human beings into Christians and non-Christians and converting the latter to Christianity using every available opportunity.

The legal-activist group asked the government to stop all funds to IMA until John Jayalal is removed from his position as President. Dr Johnrose Austin Jayalal was appointed as the national president of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) for the year 2020-2021 at its 95th annual national conference held in December 2020.

The LRPF has pointed out two interviews given by Jayalal where he had expressed strong views about proselytizing Hindus. The complaint mentions Jaylal’s interview with Haggai International, where he says that the “Hindu Nationalist government” wants to destroy modern medicine.

In another interview to Christianity Today, Jayalal had said that it was the Church that took care of the poor people, implying that the government did not do anything.

In the complaint LRPO lists out the following controversial comment made by Dr Jayalal which shows his intention to use his position for evangelical activities:

  1. Hindu Nationalist government wants to destroy modern medicine.
  2. Government has not come forward to support COVID victims/lockdown difficulties but Church has taken care of that.
  3. They want to make it one nation, one system of medicine. Next, they will want to make it one religion. This is also based on the Sanskrit language, which is always traditionally based on the Hindu principles. This is an indirect way for the government to introduce the language of Sanskrit and the language of Hindutva into the minds of the people.
  4. Organised hunger strike, fasting protest and fighting in Supreme Court against non-allopathic systems of medicine.
  5. Christian doctors should be physical healing as well as spiritual healing.
  6. We need more Christian doctors to work more in secular institutions, mission institutions, and medical colleges.
  7. I am working as a professor of surgery in a medical college, so it is also a good opportunity for me to carry on the principles of Christian healing there. I also have the privilege of mentoring graduates and the interns
  8. Hindus are softcore, practice polytheisim and hence easy to make them accept Jesus.
  9. The opportunity in front of every Christian is splendid. It is not solely the responsibility of the pastor.
