New Zealand massacre ISKCON response

Sunday, 17 March 2019 / Published in Announcements / 1,970 views

The horrific massacre that unfolded in Christchurch New Zealand on Friday 15th March, in which to date 50 human beings have lost their lives, is truly a very dark moment in history, not only for Muslims but for all who treasure the gift of life.

On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand Hare Krishna Movement, I wish to convey that ISKCON members all over the world offer their sincere prayers to all who are suffering due to this insane act of evil madness.

Our deepest sympathy goes to those who lost family members, friends and fellow members of the Christchurch Muslim community, as well as to those who survived but will bear the scars of their physical and emotional wounds for life.

An atrocity perpetrated in the name of promoting the supremacy of one nationality, religion or race over another is by all accounts a pernicious lie. Instead we find in all of the world’s sacred scriptures that we share a universal kinship in that we are all children of the same God.

This attack was carried out as an act of hate and we in the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, ISKCON, stand united with our peace loving Muslim brothers and sisters around the globe and refuse to allow this horrific event to break our common bond which is love for God and love for humanity.

    Please accept my humble obeisances.

    No one is showing how radical muslims masacre and displacing thousands daily at north Ghana right now !! It does not appear at mainstream media too. Why to worry, just thousands and thousands christians being slaughter no interest at all. But when few muslims get killed it is everywhere.

    Ghana asked for international help but EU and USA said they do not have money to send troops to protect them from massive radical atacks.

      Hare Krishna! Indeed Muslims slaughter thousands of people daily and it is not in the news. But it is not a competition. Personally, I am fed up when mainstream media finds a hot topic and burns it into people's brains. However, we need a balance: innocent people die- we feel compassion, nevermind their religion, race or gender. On the other hand, it is going to an extreme when every ISKCON temple has to release a public letter. ISKCON NZ feels kind of normal to release such a supportive message, but that's it.
