The pains of this struggle for truth have been borne silently by the devotees of ISKCON-Bangalore for several years. So far we have been trying our best to contain this within the institution.
However, it has become necessary today, unfortunately, to disseminate the sensitive information of purely internal nature in our publication. Our adversaries are exploiting our silence by perpetrating false and maligning propaganda against the devotees of ISKCON-Bangalore, even more vigorously than ever before, in order to demean our cause, and sidestep the real issue.
As supporters and donors of our organization, we believe it is your right to be informed by us of the real issues that have transpired in this matter.
