ISKCON Biggest Cheat: Maneka Gandhi Accuses ISKCON of Selling Cows to Butchers, ISKCON Denies Allegation

BJP MP Maneka Gandhi on Tuesday night made a scathing attack on the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) in a video that is making rounds on social media, calling the organisation the “biggest cheat” in the country. Gandhi, who is an animal rights activist, alleged that the ISKCON sells cows from their gaushalas (cowsheds) to butchers.

“The biggest cheat in India today is ISKCON. They establish gaushalas for which they get unlimited benefits from the government to run them. They get huge land...everything. I just visited their Anantput Gaushala. Not a single dry cow is present. All are dairies. There is not a single calf. It means all of them were sold. ISCKON is selling all its cows to the butcher,” Gandhi can be heard saying in the video.

Notably, a dry cow is one that has not been milked.

She can further be heard saying, “…They say their entire life is dependent on milk…Probably no one has sold as many cattle to butchers as they did. If these people can do it, what about others?”

ISCKON issues statement Hours after the video went viral, ISKCON - associated with the Hare Krisha movement - hit back at the BJP MP calling her statement “unsubstantiated” and “false”.

“ISKCON has been at the forefront of cow and bull protection and care not just in India but globally. The cows and bulls are served for their life not sold to butchers as alleged,” spokesperson of ISKCON Yudhistir Govinda Das wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Issuing a statement, the temple authority said that they were “surprised” by Gandhi's statements.
