Bhakti Caru Swami's Last Secretary Issues Death Threat


Back To Prabhupada, Issue 5
Autumn 2004

Following the IRM sending out an e-mail inviting devotees to request a copy of BTP 4, in which it is highlighted how in this issue of BTP the GBC admits that its "final siddhanta" position paper on its Guru system "stretched the truth" and contained "lies", the French IRM office received the following death threat from Bhakti Caru Swami's previous secretary, Candrasekhar Acarya:

I wish you had put the unsubscription instructions at the beginning of the message, you filthy poisonous snake. If I ever see you, whoever you are, I'll beat you to death with a stick. You are SO envious and blind!!

It is ironic that Candrasekhar Acarya calls the IRM "blind", since it is HE who is behaving as a fanatical, brainwashed and blind follower of the unauthorized Guru system in ISKCON. He cannot see that it was the GBC itself, NOT the IRM, who claimed that the GBC's "final" position paper was full of "lies".

This behaviour by a disciple is only in keeping with the tendency of some ISKCON Gurus to respond to philosophical arguments with mindless violence. It should therefore come as no surprise that it was other disciples of the Guru of this disciple, Bhakti Caru Swami, who were involved in a violent armed assault against the ISKCON IRM temple in Calcutta (see the newspaper reports reproduced in BTP1). Indeed, this same Bhakti Caru Swami pledged even MORE money and resources to launch a SECOND attack on the IRM devotees as revealed in an email of 14th May, 2001 to the ISKCON Bureau:

"We have to remember that we are fighting a battle against Kali for Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, and if we consider ourselves to be leaders ... let us find out what Dayaram Prabhu actually needs, man and money wise, and then try to provide that to him."
(Bhakti Caru Swami, 14th May, 2001)

It is quite clear that despite all its shows of having "reformed" and supposedly left behind its violent past, THE CULT LIVES ON!
