Puranjana Supports Defamation of
Srila Prabhupada


Having seen how PADA is happy to help STOP a court case that is DEFENDING Srila Prabhupada, he is however at the same time more than happy to SUPPORT a court case that ATTACKS Srila Prabhupada. The recent Windle Turley Gurukuli lawsuit contains the following horrendous and most disgusting claim:

"35. The founder of the institution, Prabhupada, was informed in 1972, at a time when he totally controlled the institution, that extensive physical and sexual abuse of minor ISKCON children was occurring, but he concealed the wrongdoing from the public, parents and all but a handful of close advisors." 
(Windle Turley court filing)

Further this charge is listed in section IV B as an an example of the 'Abuse Inflicted' along with anal sex and other horrible crimes. And what does PADA think about this great blasphemy:

"The idea of "blaming Srila Prabhupada" has also surfaced to a nominal extent in this complaint, but it is not at all to the degree that many so-called "big devotees" blame him."
(Puranjana: 14 June 2000 16:53)

If PADA is happy to minimise the charge - that Srila Prabhupada knew about all the horrible abuse that was occuring, and did nothing about it but rather hid it, and that his action is itself an example of the 'abuse inflicted' which therefore would make Srila Prabhupada himself guilty of abuse - as just being 'nominal', I wonder what nasty slander against Srila Prabhupada one would actually have to make in order for him to take it seriously! 

Puranjana has not hid the fact that he is happy with the Turley Windle lawsuit: 

"So, we are repeating things sometimes because we feel that there has not yet been an appropriate response. I think the current response with the lawsuit is a good start."  
(Puranjana in PADA: Thursday, June 15, 2000 4:28 PM)

So to make Srila Prabhupada the chief accessory to these horrible crimes is a 'good start' according to PADA. Nothing surprising there since we have seen how eager he is to implicate anyone as an accessory just to fuel his own anger, having already accused me of being an accessory to Srila Prabhupada's murder. Thus we can see that in the above two cases, that firstly PADA is more than happy to sacrifice Srila Prabhupada being re-instated as the Guru for ISKCON so that I can be attacked, and now he is happy to sacrifice Srila Prabhupada's reputation just so the GBC are attacked. It seems he is a confused and immoral character who will back any unsubstantiated allegation, be it against Srila Prabhupada or his Godbrothers, simply to give vent to whatever anger he happens to be feeling at that particular time. 

He has tried to justify why the Gurukulis may want to blame Srila Prabhupada for their troubles, but what is HIS excuse for not defending Srila Prabhupada against this horrible blasphemy? Maybe PADA would be better off being re-named the Prabhupada DEFAMATION Association.

Please chant: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare,

And be Happy!
