NEW DELHI: The Resident Doctors Association of the Maulana Azad Medical College issued an apology and clarification after a video went viral in which students of the medical college are allegedly seen mocking Sudama and Lord Krishna by portraying Sudama as a drunkard during a cultural fest conducted on September 27. The medical association informed that the group which performed the act has been banned.

“This is in response to a video doing rounds on social media, the contents of which are of a disrespectful nature to religious sentiments. We wish to clarify that the said incident happened on the evening of September 27, 2022, during a satirical comedy event as part of the annual college fest. The college festival- Synapse was a 4-day event organised by the Residents Doctors Association and Azad Medicos Association as a joint venture. Given the competitive nature of the event, the script for the same was undisclosed. And was against the rules and regulations of the organising committee,” RDA MAMC said in a statement.

“Whereas the act depicted in the video was demeaning and unethical, the cultural society performing it (called Mahaul Makers) was unconditionally banned and disqualified from any future activities on the campus, the very next day, i.e. September 28. A written apology was also requisitioned and furnished,” it added.

The association went on to say that MAMC and Lok Nayak Hospital have a national record of treating the maximum number of COVID patients in the recent pandemic, leading from the front since the pandemic began. Since the 62 years that this college has served the country with excellence in medical care, secularism has been at the core of many values that it imparts. Anything deviating from this is viewed very strictly and discouraged with utmost vehemence.

“We also wish to emphasize that we will ensure no such acts are repeated in future, and what only emanates is the supreme quality of medical care for which this institution stands,” RDA further said.
