ISKCON Hyderabad nod a major boost for Metro Rail

THE HINDU: While the suspense continues about the probable alignment changes on the Metro Rail corridors, a significant breakthrough has been achieved in providing the right of way at a key site. The ISKCON temple authorities have agreed to allow the overhead viaduct across their property without affecting their two main structures.
Senior Metro Rail officials, declining to be identified, indicated that a broad agreement was reached with the temple authorities to permit construction in 18 meter wide corridor inside, on crossing Sangeet crossroads junction. A sum of close to six crore rupees is to be paid as compensation for acquiring 6,000 sq.yards of the land.
It comes as a shot in the arm for the beleaguered Metro Rail officials as the issue was hanging fire over the last couple of years and had become a major bottleneck on corridor three – Nagole – Shilparamam - Raidurg route. Apparently, patient negotiations with the property owners concerned and the Government’s support has ensured some recalcitrant cases to come around.
Senior officials are now quietly confident of acquiring parts of a prominent club in Begumpet too.
“Over the years we have managed to take over more than 1,000 properties along with old Gandhi Hospital land and defense properties through persuasion and attractive compensation package,” they point out. 

Court cases
Still about 500 properties including 281 key ones have to be acquired. Some of these also come under Urban Land Ceiling Act and Government Vested Municipal (GVMs) properties – listed as Government lands on official records. Thus far, 156 GVMs have been acquired while 100 more are left.
Significant number of remaining GVMs are on the Greenlands-Jubilee Hills route (4.5 km), also on corridor three. Only a few piers or pillars of viaduct of 117 planned have come up on this stretch due to a court case by the affected persons. The HC has already heard both parties and final judgement is awaited.

Iskcon GBC, Bangalore Playing Communal Card for its Land Encroachment Mishap

Iskcon GBC, Bangalore  or specifically Iskcon Narasimha Giridhari Mandir, Bangalore is known for its controversies. Its been famous for its president Varada Krishna Dasa who is a criminal (according to the high court) as well as its famous for using the name of ISKCON Bangalore, Rajajinagar to get more donations. Ofcourse, Lord krishna saves the genuine devotee and this report is going to prove that. Iskcon Truth got an invite from Iskcon Narasimha Giridhari Mandir, Bangalore saying that they want help from us to save Iskcon temple and sign a petition. Well! curious IT devotees browsed the link and was shocked to see the cheapness of the devotees. First of all, Prabhupada regected Hinduism, he says "You may call the Vedas Hindu, but "Hindu" is a foreign name. WE ARE NOT HINDUS. (Sri Isopanisad Introduction)" for more of prabhupada's words you can CLICK HERE
Most Communal Petition by so called ISKCON GBC

Not only this but in the petition if you see they have written the following
The last known instance of an organised conspiracy sponsored by the Kings or the governments to destroy Hindu temples was recorded many decades or centuries back during the dark days of pre-independent India under some really fanatic Muslim rulers.
Facebook post share by ISKCON GBC, Bangalore
Believe it or not, the Karnataka state government is about to embark on something like this right now. There are four beautiful and very popular full-fledged temples, in a four-acre complex right here in the heart of Bangalore (HBR Layout). What is even more unbelieveble is that the Honorable City Civil Court has held that some of the deities and temples here have been present from time immemorial. The present Karnataka state government is totally disregarding the court orders and a subsequent clarification and decision made by one of the previous governments and is threatening to demolish all the temples on the pretext that the temples are on an abandoned lake bed. This is a hopeless lie, as the state government planned to allot the land to a mechanized slaughter house for the purpose of setting up a beef export unit as long back as 28 years back!
We are left wondering why the Government of Karnataka wants to turn the clock back to the dark ages of the medieval Muslim rulers and the reintroduce the ghastly practice of demolishing temples and smashing the deities. Or is it a sinister conspiracy by the Karnataka state government Home Minister Mr. George in their grand agenda of minority appeasement? One never knows but one can certainly infer from what is going on.
I Mean, What???
The scam is big, according to ISKCON Truth sources Iskcon Narasimha Giridhari Mandir, Bangalore is constructed on an unclaimed land which is of-course Illegal and Prabhupada would never ever agree to do something illegal.
Therefore ISKCON Truth publicly announces NOT to support this Varada Krishna Dasa's Scam or  Iskcon Narasimha Giridhari Mandir, Bangalore's Scam or Iskcon GBC, Bangalore's scam and We request all our devotees NOT to join hands with Iskcon Narasimha Giridhari Mandir, Bangalore. Join us fight against cheaters and fake gurus and to protect prabhupada's house ISKCON from all these rascals.

Iskcon to build a golden temple in Guntur

Deccan Chronicle: GUNTUR: The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon GBC) is going to construct a unique golden Lord Butter Krishna temple near Kondaveedu Fort of Guntur district with a fund of Rs 500 crore. This is the first of its kind of a golden temple in south India.
The surroundings of the temple will host pavilions for different attractions from Mahabharata and Ramayana.
The temple complex will also house  an international school, a medical centre, a religious theme park, a museum with the history of Kondaveedu, a vedic school and a cow protection centre.
A rare idol of young Krishna, locally called as Venna Mudda Gopaludu, was found during the excavations at the historical and ancient Kondaveedu fort in 1998 and it inspired Iskcon to construct a golden butter Krishna temple at Kondaveedu.
According to the Kondaveedu development society convener  K. Siva Reddy, the discovered butter Krishna idol belongs to 13th century. It was sculpted during King Sri Krishna Devaraya and this golden temple is going to revive the religious cultural heritage of Kondaveedu.
Iskcon south India president and trustee of golden temple project, Satyagopinath Das said that the Iskcon planned to promote spiritual heritage, hence started Iskcon-Kondaveedu Spiritual Heritage Revival Project (IKSHR). It will create a comprehensive spiritual tourist attraction zone in 150 acres of land, he added.
He said that the project would be completed in three phases and already the Gosala (cow protection center) and a cow university have been started at Kondaveedu.
He said that Iskcon sought 58 acres of land, but the government has allotted only 21 acres of lands.
Hence, they are waiting for the allotment of land to start the temple project.  The golden temple will have gold-plated sanctum sanctorum.

President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee Inaugurated ISKCON Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir

Speech by the President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee at the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir
I am delighted to be amongst you in Vrindavan today. I congratulate ISKCON for conceiving a unique project of this kind. I understand that the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir, the foundation stone for which was laid on 16thof March this year, shall be an architectural marvel seeking to recreate the glory and the times of Lord Shri Krishna. It shall enable thousands of pilgrims who congregate at Vrindavan every year the opportunity of experiencing new levels of spiritual consciousness.
2. I also take this opportunity to convey my deep appreciation and respect for His Divine Grace AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, the founder Acharya of ISKCON, who spread the message of Krishna consciousness all over the world. A celebrated spiritualist and author, his influence continues to resonate in the hearts of Krishna devotees all over the world even today.
3. It was Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who, alongwith his disciples, established temples in Vrindavan and led the cultural renaissance in the fifteenth century. He was instrumental in making Vrindavan the seat of bhakti and in disseminating its principles, as enunciated in our ancient texts, throughout India. I am happy that the proposed temple seeks to continue and build on this glorious tradition.
4. Shri Madhu Pandit Dasa, who has conceived this temple project, has aptly stated that this temple will not be just a mere edifice of concrete and steel, but a living and dynamic institution, and a center of learning and education. The Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir will strive to disseminate the philosophical message of the Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam in an easy to understand and rational manner –that message is particularly relevant for us as a society today. While we as a nation move up the developmental ladder, it is essential that our spiritual core, which forms the bedrock of our civilization, remains undiluted and strong as ever.
5. Ladies and Gentlemen, India is one of the oldest and culturally rich civilizations in the world. As we now make the transformative change from being a developing to a developed economy, there will be immense pressures on our socio-economic and moral fabric. It is, therefore, imperative that we reconnect to our spiritual dimensions. There can be no better way of doing this than spreading the Bhagvad Gita’s message of universal love and humanity. I congratulate ISKCON for their efforts in highlighting and propagating the timeless teachings of Lord Krishna across the world. 6. I am particularly happy to learn about the various initiatives that are being contemplated for the upliftment of society under the aegis of this Project, including welfare programmes for the widows of Vrindavan and the restoration, upgradation and rejuvenation of the important sites of Braj. The Akshaya Patra program through which ISKCON is providing mid-day meals to nearly 1.4 lakh children in 2160 schools in Mathura District for the last decade is a noble initiative indeed.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
7. Srimad Bhagavatam describes the four pillars of spirituality – truthfulness, compassion, austerity and purity. Civilized societies exist and operate within the framework of these values. Lord Krishna, through His timeless teachings in the Bhagavad Gita, has shaped the intellectual, cultural and spiritual mindscape of India for several millennia. It is, thus, only appropriate that Vrindavan strives to become a world renowned center for spiritual enlightenment, from where the message of divinity and peace resonates across all humanity.
8. I am glad to know that Government of India and the Government of Uttar Pradesh have taken various initiatives towards making Vrindavan a hub of religious tourism. The present project adds a new dimension to these initiatives and shall hopefully generate positive spin- offs both for local society and the economy. I am confident that ISKCON will continue to partner both the Central and the State Governments in their efforts aimed at social change and reformation.
9. I once again wish the Project and the entire ISKCON team all success in their endeavors.
Thank you.

Mystery of the packet received by High court Judges revealed, Issues notice against ISKCON Mumbai

The Honorable High Court of Karnataka today issued notice on criminal contempt of court against ISKCON Mumbai, Doyarama Dasa, Bhīma Dasa ( Secretary ISKCON  Mumbai), Varada Krishna Dasa and Balaji Subhash. The divisional bench consisting of Honorable Justice N Kumar and Hon. Justice Manohar issued the notice while hearing contempt of court proceedings initiated against ISKCON Mumbai and others by Secretary of ISKCON Bangalore.
 
It may be recalled that on April 17th 2009 City civil court had given a permanent injunction against ISKCON Mumbai stating that it should not interfere in ISKCON Bangalore’s affairs. ISKCON Mumbai had gone on appeal to the Honorable High court against this verdict of the Trial court. The appeal was being heard by a divisional bench headed by Hon. Justice K L Manjunath. On 10th July 2009 a mystery packet was received by Hon. Justice KL Manjunath and Hon. Justice C R Kumaraswamy. The mystery packet contained photographs of Hon. Justice KL Manjunath receiving a photo frame while visiting ISKCON temple in Rajajinagar, Bangalore. The packet also contained a letter requesting Hon. Justice KL Manjunath to not hear the appeal as the photographs indicate that he is associated with ISKCON Bangalore. Subsequently Hon. Justice KL Manjunath recused from the appeal and it was heard before another bench. While so recusing suo moto contempt of court was initiated against President, Secretary of ISKCON Bangalore and four lawyers. Later on the Honorable High Court acquitted the President and two lawyers from the contempt proceedings.
One, Mr. Balaji Subash in April 2011 had tried to extort money from ISKCON Bangalore and a complaint was filed against him by ISKCON Bangalore. He was later arrested by the police and jailed for 45 days.  Subsequently Central Investigation Department (CID) Karnataka has taken up the investigation of this case and has filed a charge sheet against Balaji Subash under sections 384, 417, 465, 468,471 r/w 34 section of the IPC and section 66(A)of  IT Act 2000
(Click on the below image to enlarge)


Investigations further revealed that Varada Krishna Das of ISKCON Mumbai abetted to the crime committed by Balaji Subash by instigating him into criminal acts. The CID has also filed charge sheet against Varada Krishna Dasa under sections 384, 417,465,468,471, 120(B) of IPC and section 66(a) of IT Act 2000




vide crime no 78 of 2011. During the course of investigation it was revealed that Varada Krishna dasa was actively in touch with Balaji Subhash and that he had offered him huge amounts of money if he succeeded in maligning ISKCON Bangalore. Both Balaji Subhash and Varada Krishna Dasa are now on bail and have been given specific instructions by courts to co-operate with the investigations. The matter is pending before 1st ACMM court Bangalore.
On 11th April 2011 Balaji Subhash had written an email admitting that he stole the pictures of Hon. Justice Manjunath visiting and receiving photo frame from ISKCON Bangalore temple. He also admitted that he stole the pictures under instructions from ISKCON Mumbai. He also admits that he handed over the pictures to ISKCON Mumbai. The email further reveals that the entire conspiracy was arranged by combined plan of Doyaram Dasa, Bhima Dasa(Secretary ) and Varada Krishna of ISKCON Mumbai. ISKCON Mumbai through various unscrupulous means has been making all efforts to malign ISKCON Bangalore. Evidence now strongly points out that the mystery packet containing photographs of the Judge were indeed handy work of ISKCON Mumbai and its leaders in association with Balaji Subhash.
Citing these emails and charge sheet filed by CID secretary of ISKCON Bangalore had filed a petition to initiate criminal contempt of court against ISKCON Mumbai, Balaji Subhash and others. Advocate General of Karnataka in his order has also given permission to initiate contempt proceedings against Balaji Subhash, Dayarama Dasa and Varada Krishna Dasa.







On wednesday 12th November 2014, the matter came up for hearing before the Honorable High Court and it has issued notice to ISKCON Mumbai, Dayarama Dasa, Varada Krishna Dasa, Bhīma Dasa and Balaji Subhash.

Criminal Contempt Notice to ISKCON Mumbai & Balaji Subhash

Balaji Subhash
DHNS: The High Court of Karnataka on Wednesday ordered a criminal contempt notice against Iskcon Mumbai in connection with a contempt petition filed by Iskcon Bangalore.
Dayarama Dasa

Iskcon Bangalore had sought initiation of criminal contempt of court proceedings against Iskcon Mumbai and Balaji Subhash, who allegedly tried to blackmail and extort money from Iskcon Bangalore. He was arrested by the CID police recently based on a complaint filed by Iskcon Bangalore.

According to the petitioner, Iskcon Bangalore, Balaji had sent an email on April 11, 2011, to Iskcon admitting that he stole the pictures of judge Justice K L Manjunath visiting the temple and receiving a photo frame from Iskcon Bangalore temple as per the instructions of Iskcon Mumbai. He also admitted that he handed over the pictures to Iskcon Mumbai.


Varada Krishna Dasa

“The email further reveals that the entire conspiracy was arranged by Dayarama Dasa, Bhima Dasa (secretary) and Varada Krishna of Iskcon Mumbai. Iskcon Mumbai, through various unscrupulous means, has been making efforts to malign Iskcon Bangalore.”
The petitioner said that since the evidence now strongly points out that the mysterious packet containing photographs of the judge was the handiwork of Iskcon Mumbai and its leaders in association with Balaji, contempt action should be initiated against Iskcon Mumbai. When the matter came up for hearing before the High Court, the division bench ordered issue of notice to Dayarama Dasa, Varada Krishna Dasa, Bhima Dasa, all members of Iskcon Mumbai, and Balaji Subhash.


Original Conversation Between Balaji Subhash & Varada Krishna Dasa


ISKCON Truth Questions:

ISKCON Mumbai contacted Balaji Subhash to scam ISKCON Bangalore and the obvious question is why? ISKCON Mumbai/ so called ISKCON GBC tries such kind of cheap tricks to book ISKCON Bangalore for what reason? 
I think devotees of Krishna should be truthful and to all the GBC believers and members I would like to ask "Did you forget Krishna and mainly Prabhupada???" 
Is this ISKCON which Prabhupada dream off? You decide

Following is the Documentary on the notorious Balaji Subhash- TV9 Kannada.
