Munir Khan is a self-proclaimed “scientist” who promises cures nearly every disease including cancer, HIV, diabetes, heart ailments, tumours, paralysis and reversal of premature ageing with a single medicine which he sells for approx. Rs. 30,000 for a bottle of 100ml concoction.
Khan predominantly operates via his fraudulent clinic in Mumbai and promote himself via dodgy TV advertisements.
Badscience investigations revealed that Khan has no medical or science related qualifications and is nothing but a conman who gained the trust of the gullible people portraying himself as a credible person having acceptable qualifications. Khan was arrested by the police on multiple occasions but he managed to secure bail every time.
Claims of qualifications
He claims to have the following double honorary doctorates. However, our investigations found that both of the qualifications are diploma mill certificates that anyone can buy online for money.
Honorary PhD in Ayurveda awarded by KEISIE International University, South Korea: We have searched University and Colleges in the Korean Government run website StudyinKorea where this university is not listed. Various sources confirmed that KEISIE is an online diploma mill.
Honorary Doctor awarded by Confederation of International Accreditation Commission (CIAC): Another diploma mill organisation faking with a fancy name tag. CIAC is registered in Delaware, USA as a private company, however, solely operates out of India and has no functional presence in the USA as it claims. Their Registered Office Address noted on the company’s website is of the address of thier company registration Agent. Therefore, evident that it is another fake degree accreditation agencies misleading public and regulators in India portraying it as an International organisation.
