Whilst speaking about his Back To Godhead magazine, which he established as ISKCON's official magazine, Srila Prabhupada wrote:

"On the whole, I wish to present Back To Godhead purely in the line of Krishna Consciousness throughout and criticism of too much materialism, as you have written many articles already. That is very nice."
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, 15/2/69, emphasis added)

"So go on exposing them, that is the purpose of the Back to Godhead paper, to expose their materialistic ideas as all nonsense and present the real philosophy that Lord Krsna gives. This is the real knowledge."
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, 26/9/75, emphasis added)

Thus, Srila Prabhupada taught that "criticism" is essential. Because criticism of that which is the wrong path is necessary in order to get a person to give it up and instead take up the right path.
