TRUTH TRIUMPHED FALSEHOOD FAILED
GLOBAL JOY AS SIBERIAN COURT DISMISSES CASE FOR BAN ON YOGESHWAR KRISHNA’S GITA
GLOBAL JOY AMONG DEVOTEES OF YOGESHWAR KRISHNA
By Brigadier Chitranjan Sawant,VSM
My joy is unbound when I read on the news wire that the Tomsk Court in Siberia, Russia has dismissed the State Prosecutors”plea to ban the Bhagwad Gita As It Is as a piece of extremist literature that promotes social dischord and hatred.The case had been going on since June 2011 but as the day of judgement neared the anger mixed sadness reached the boiling point among the Hindus all over the world. Now we feel relieved that one of our most sacred scriptures that ranks next to the Vedas has come out shining like Sun.
ORTHODOX CHURCH PLAYED DIRTY
Ah! It was the Russian Orthodox Church that was the moving spirit behind the court case filed by the State Prosecutors in the far off Siberia. It was a dirty and tactical move of the Russian Orthodox Church. The evil design was to obtain an anti ISKCON judgement and have the Gita banned quietly away from the glare of media publicity. Thus they would have achieved their aim of limiting the spiritual activities of the ISKCON movement and also spread their form of Christianity. They failed miserably.
The TRUTH is onthe side of Yogeshwar krishna’s Bhagwad Gita and the Hindu missionary spirit of ISKCON founded by AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhpada, founder of the Hare Krishna movement. TRUTH wins aways and everytime. The Mundak Upanishad says:
“SATYAMEV JAYATE NANRITAM, SATYEN PANTHA VITATO DEVYANAH”
The Truth wins and not the falsehood. The good and the learned people find their path smooth and widened through TRUTH. Indeed it has happened in the present case of wily elements that thought and worked like Rakshasas.
THANKS TO RUSSIANS AND INDIANS
As a devotee of the Vedic Dharm, I feel it is my duty to thank the governments of the Russian Federation and the Republic of India for having walked an extra mile to ensure that the process of law was not abused and misused. Shri SM Krishna, Minister of External Affairs, Govt of India had stated categorically that the case for ban filed in the Tomsk Court was “patently absurd”. He pursued the case and met the Russian ambassador in India, Mr Kadakin, an Indologist, to ensure that the ruffled feelings of the global Indians are not aggravated by an adversial judgement of the court. Both played their roles well and the result is heartening.
It may be mentioned that the same evil men had tried their dirty plans in courts of Moscow but had met with failure. In India a dismissed case is not permitted to be revived in another court of law of the same level. Of course, an aggrieved party may go in appeal to a higher court.
Sadhu Priya Das Chairman of the newly formed Hindu Council of Russia has expressed his deep sense of satisfaction at the final outcome.
We are thankful to Ishwar and the Hare krishna movement for the good tidings. AUM.
