Derogatory words

In the video which was published on different social media sites, YouTube channel and on the website of Shemaroo, Surleen Kaur is seen saying “Beshak hum sab ISKCON wale hain, par andar se sab harami porn wale hain..” While the video was published a month ago, it has been creating furore on social media since last few days.

ISKCON Vice President and spokesperson Radharamn Das, took to Twitter to raise a complaint against Kaur and Shemaroo. “Dear Sir @CPMumbaiPolice. Pls find our complaint against Surleen Kaur & @ShemarooEnt for using inappropriate words for ISKCON, for our Rishis, Hindus. This is very unfortunate that there has been narrative building against the followers of Sanatan Dharma on different platforms,” read his tweet.

The letter

In the letter, Das writes, “there is a growing trend in India, where Hindus/ Sanatan Dharma and our Rishi-Munis, Deities, etc are being constantly abused by a group of people and organizations,” adding that this is being done to “manipulate the youths.”  The decision to file a complaint was made after the video went viral on social media recently.
