Missing the Forest for the Trees-A reply to Satyaraja Prabhu‚Äôs ‚ÄúTruth Is Many-sided‚ÄĚ

The issue with DDS is perfectly simple. In the light of the 21st century, to say that it was acceptable to beat children with rods as recently as 1995 is a nonsense.

To say that beating children is somehow “Vedic” is an apology for child abuse, and a reflection that the beater - DDS and his associates have no compassion, no understanding of child psychology and have completely overlooked Srila Prabhupada’s heart of love for children.

To admit that it was a mistake to have allowed DDS to have even a loose role in education after this came to light is laudable. Satyajara’s arguments, veiled in academic language fail to grasp the point that it is never right to beat a child for any reason - no matter how wilful, disobedient or awful that child may be. 152 gurukulis who went through sheer hell are not wrong.

Physical, sexual, psychological and spiritual abuse is the legacy of an inability or unwillingness to impose stringent child protection standards in Vrindabin Broken lives, shattered faith in many ex students and their parents will take a lifetime - or lifetimes to undo.
