The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) has sent Rs. 100 crore defamation notice to BJP MP Maneka Gandhi for alleging that the religious organisation sells cows to butchers for slaughter.
The ISKCON has refuted minister’s allegations and said devotees were ‘deeply pained’ by the remarks.’
“Today we have sent a Rs 100 crore defamation notice to Mrs. Maneka Gandhi @Manekagandhibjp for levelling completely unfounded allegations against ISKCON. The worldwide community of ISKCON devotees, supporters, and well-wishers are deeply pained by these defamatory, slanderous, and malicious accusations. We will not leave any stone unturned in our pursuit of justice against the fallacious propaganda against ISKCON,” wrote Radharamn Das, Vice-President and Spokesperson, ISKCON.
Earlier, Maneka Gandhi accused ISKCON of selling cows to butchers and termed the religious org as ‘cheaters.’
She also accused ISKCON of earning ‘unlimited benefits’ from the government in the form of vast lands.
