ISKCON approaches Kolkata police for action against Hinduphobic YouTube Channel

ISKCON (International Society for Krishan Consciousness) has been actively fighting against the derogatory portrayal of Hindu Dharma particularly on social media (SM). The vice-president of the organization Shri Radharamn Das stated that they have approached the Shakespeare Sarani Police Station with the request to file FIR (First Information Report) against two persons for hurting Hindu religious sentiments and spreading hate through their YouTube channel.

The letter requests the police to file an FIR against Sateesh K Azad and Shakeel Khan running the YouTube channel “The Realist Azad” for the abusive, offensive, and vulgar content on the said channel.

He has pointed out how the channel is spreading lies against Sanatan Dharma. In one of their videos (now unavailable), they have purportedly made derogatory remarks against Bhagwan Krishna and Devi Radha.

In the offensive video, Bhagwan Krishna has been called a “rapist” thereby hurting Hindus worldwide who worship Him. The letter asks for strict action against the two individuals running the channel for deliberately hurting Hindu sentiments and attempting to spread malice in the society.

A case is sought to be filed under section 295A (deliberate and malicious intention of outraging feelings of any class of citizens by words or signs or visible representations or otherwise) and other relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

The said channel carries nothing but anti-Hindu content in the name of ‘promoting rationality and busting superstitions’. All their videos make exaggerated and unsubstantiated claims. The channel is only promoting hate against Hindus on the lines of “break Bharat” forces.

Their FB (Facebook) page carries the same Hinduphobic content spreading hatred against Sanatan Dharma and its rituals. Although the page lists the email of one Sateesh, the page mostly carries posts from one Azad Khan.

The entire case, therefore, merits thorough investigation and strict action along with exemplary punishment.
