A statement by former Union Minister Maneka regarding ISKCON is viral on social media. In the video, Maneka can be heard saying, 'The biggest fraud in India right now is ISKCON."
He said that recently I had visited Anantapur Gaushala of ISKCON. There was not even a single dry cow there. Found all the dairy cows and not a single calf there. He said that means they were all sold out.
At the same time, ISKCON termed the allegations as baseless and false and said that ISKCON has more than 60 Gaushalas in India. ISKCON has been at the forefront in the protection and care of cows and bulls.
ISKCON was established in New York in 1965. It was started in India by Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada.
According to the organization, a large number of followers joined the mission between 1966 and 1968. This led Srila Prabhupada to establish temples in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Santa Fe, Montreal and New Mexico.
Between 1969 and 1973, several temples were inaugurated in Canada, Europe, Africa, South America, Mexico and India. Watch the video for more information.....
