Kazakhstan saga is nearing an unfavorable conclusion

Sunday, 12 October 2008 / Published in Announcements, BB Govinda Swami / 7,640 views

By BB Govinda Swami

Dear All,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

We have continued our efforts in Kazakhstan and it seems that the saga is nearing an unfavorable conclusion.

In 2001 the Kazakh government issued a decree that our temple building and barn were suitable for usage. This summer they annulled that decree.

Now they have called our members to court. The case will focus on the “demolition of illegal building and forced eviction from the property.”

As a final effort we have started a letter campaign to the President of Kazakhstan. We did this in the beginning of the crisis and we are still on the property four years later.

We are humbly requesting you to take a moment to fax this letter to two offices of the Kazakhstan government:

1. To the Kazakhstan Embassy in London.

+442075848481

2. To the Administration of the President of Kazakhstan, Mr. NA Nazarbayev

+77172745631

I was just in Warsaw at the OSCE meeting. Kazakhstan is presently under strong international criticism for their failure at democratic reform in light of their 2010 Chairmanship of OSCE. Our issue was consistently raised by the United States, the Holy See (Vatican), and numerous respected human rights organizations.

In the midst of international criticism there is a ray of hope that if protest reaches Kazakhstan at this moment the government may act differently in this issue.

Thank you very much for taking a moment to help and for the support you have all given us during this crisis.

Your servant,

BB Govinda Swami

Dear President Nazarbayev,

We would like to acknowledge your leadership of the great nation of Kazakhstan since independence. Your country has become a place of inter-ethnic peace and religious tolerance.

We find it troubling that in your nation the Krishna Religion has faced many difficulties.

Presently, the Karasai District Court of Almaty Province is initiating court procedures that will result in the demolition of the only Krishna Religion temple in the nation of Kazakhstan.

If this demolition takes place it will be a blemish on the face of your beautiful nation.

We are requesting Your Excellency to uphold the dignity of your nation by ordering the closure of the current legal procedures.

We also request that the various departments of your government will work fairly to establish an equitable resolve to this crisis.

We thank you for your consideration.

With respect,

His Grace Radhakrishnadas Brahmachari Prabhu's upcoming programme
Milk from a Cow or Snake Prabhu?

  1. Praghosa says :

    Dandavats would like to urge ALL of its readers to print out the letter, sign it and then fax it to their nearest Kazak embassy as well as the Kazak president Mr. Nazarbayev.

    The more of us that send the fax, the more chance there is that the course of action being planned by the Kazak authorities might be reversed.

    Yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada,

    Praghosa dasa

    Obviously more important is that we send the faxes to the above numbers first given by HH BB Goving Swami Maharaj and it would be nice if you fax or email it to your local kazakh embassy. The data is generated through internet and may not be updated incase it doesnt work.

    Thank you very very much.
