Demand for Resignation of IMA Chief Dr. Austin Johnrose Jayalal, Who is Accused of Misusing Office for Proselytisation, Grows Louder

The demand for the resignation of IMA chief Dr. Austin Johnrose Jayalal, who is accused of misusing his office for proselytisation, grows louder. Dr. Jitendra Nagar, an IMA member and Gujarat based diabetologist, said charges against Dr. Jayalal were very serious in nature and he should be removed from the office till all the charges are probed thoroughly. In a letter written to the IMA, Dr. Nagar said, “How a person sitting on the highest post of IMA can pursue his vitriolic agenda of conversion?” He also asked the IMA national office bearers to form a committee to probe the allegations against him. Dr. Johnrose had earlier said “When leprosy, cholera, and other pandemics devastated the world, it was Christian doctors and churches who stood against it, showing Christian compassion.” He had added, “And the urgent need of the proclamation of the Gospel to people who are suffering from the virus has allowed us to share the Gospel even in secular institutions.” Dr. Johnrose was elected the IMA president in October last year. The Indian Medical Association is the largest professional body of doctors in the country. It is secular and non-political in nature. In an interview with Haggai International, he has credited it “with revitalizing his spiritual life and infusing his medical work with Gospel urgency.” Haggai International claims “Our vision is to see every nation redeemed and transformed through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” He had also attended the Haggai Leader Experience in 2018. Dr. Johnrose had earlier expressed his hatred for Hinduism and ancient Indian civilisation. The IMA chief never liked the idea propagated by the AYUSH Ministry. In an interview he had said, “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 language of Hindutva into the minds of the people.” He further added, “Such allegations have turmoiled and tarnished the secular and sovereign image of IMA.”
