ISKCON has sent a defamation notice of Rs 100 crore to Bharatiya Janata Party MP Maneka Gandhi. In fact, a few days ago, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Maneka Gandhi had made serious allegations against the International Society for Krishna Consciousness i.e. ISKCON.
What did Maneka Gandhi say?
A video of Maneka Gandhi was becoming increasingly viral on social media. In which he had seriously accused ISKCON of selling cows to butchers. Not only this, he had described ISKCON as the biggest fraudulent organization in the country. Maneka was seen saying in the video, “ISKCON sets up cow shelters and for this takes a huge piece of land from the government and also earns unlimited profits.” She had claimed that she had recently visited their (ISKCON) Anantapur Gaushala in (Andhra Pradesh) where not a single cow was in good condition. He had said, “There were no calves in the cowshed, which means all of them were sold.”
Maneka further said that ISKCON is selling all its cows to butchers. No one else does this kind of work more than him. These are the same people who roam the streets chanting ‘Hare Ram Hare Krishna’ and say that their entire life depends on milk.
ISKCON termed the allegations as false
ISKCON had termed Maneka Gandhi’s allegations as false and baseless. On behalf of the organization, it was said that they were surprised by the statements of the former Union Minister. ISKCON national spokesperson Yudhishthir Govinda Das has said that ISKCON has pioneered cow conservation in many parts of the world. Especially in such areas, where beef is the main diet of the people. He further said that “Most of the cows currently in ISKCON’s cow shelter have been brought after being abandoned or injured. There are some who were brought to us after being saved from murder.”
