ISKCON GERMANY JOINS THE CALL FOR INDIAN GOVERNMENT TO BRING BACK RIVER YAMUNA TO ITS PEOPLE, WILDLIFE AND ECOLOGY.
In the week prior and after the Janmasthami celebrations representatives from ISKCON, Environmental Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) and other Hindu organizations worldwide presented letters to Ambassadors at Indian Embassies in several capitals of the world including Washington D.C., London, and Brussels (European Union) in which they expressed their grave concern about the dramatic situation of the holy River Yamuna.
Due to the critical lack of adequate natural fresh water flow in the river bed and fatal increase of pollution coming in from Delhi and beyond the River Yamuna has already become one of the most endangered rivers on earth.
Thus also representatives of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) Germany supported the action by handing a LETTER OF REQUEST to the Indian Ambassador Mrs. Sujatha Singh at her mansion in Berlin on the occasion of the 66. Year of Indian Independence. Their effort was joined and supported by the Association Kurukshetra Inbound School Of Yoga, Afghan Hindu Culture Society 1993 Cologne as well as the Vedic Cultural Association Stuttgart.
