The Journal, Editor, and Editorial Board wish to conform to the current policies of ethical biomedical publishing. We take every effort to ensure the proper recommended procedures. In spite of our best efforts, errors/omissions might creep in. Furthermore, we believe that science is self-correcting, and errors in scientific communication need to be corrected.
Our intention of publishing the critical review  and this letter to editor is to inform our readers about the potential, variable scientific opinions about the content of the said article. At the same instance, we believe that correspondence between unacquainted professionals shall dwell primarily upon scientific facts/merits and shall not transcend to personal attacks/abilities.
In this regard, we place on record the difference of opinion laid down by Prof. Stefan Ihde and colleagues as well as reply that of the authors.
We request the readers to take on informed decision about this concerned manuscript, views, and counterviews seriously before utilizing the knowledge that is associated with the manuscript.
