ISKCON Unit to File Rs 100 Crore Defamation Case Against Maneka Gandhi!!
In a startling turn of events, the Kolkata unit of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) has taken strong exception to the alleged remarks made by Bharatiya Janata Party leader Maneka Gandhi.

Unfortunate Remarks Spark Legal Action
“The comments of Maneka Gandhi were very unfortunate. Our devotees across the world are very hurt. We are taking legal action for defamation of Rs 100 crores against her. We have sent her a notice today,” expressed Vice-President of ISKCON Kolkata, Radharamn Das, while speaking to media.

Gandhi’s Accusations in a Viral Video
This controversy ignited following the circulation of a viral video in which Maneka Gandhi, the founder of People for Animals, could be heard alleging that ISKCON is the “biggest cheat in the country which sells cows from its gaushalas to butchers.”
Responding vehemently to these accusations, Radharamn Das raised a valid point, stating, “How can an MP, once a Union Minister, make such a damaging claim against such a significant society without any evidence? She is asserting (in the purported video) that she visited our Anantpur Gaushala, but our bhakts (ISKCON members) there do not remember her visit.”
