With the spreading of Hinduism worldwide, a nun in Warsaw, Poland, filed a case against ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness)

With the spreading of Hinduism worldwide, a nun in Warsaw, Poland, filed a case against ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness). The case came up in court.

The nun remarked that ISKCON was spreading its activities and gaining followers in Poland. She wanted ISKCON banned because its followers were glorifying a character called ‘Krishna’ “who had loose morals,” having married 16,000 women called Gopis.

The ISKCON defendant requested the Judge: “Please ask the nun to repeat the oath she took when she was ordained as a nun.”

The Judge asked the nun to recite the oath loudly. She would not. The ISKCON man asked permission if he could read out the oath for the nun.

“Go ahead,” said the judge. The oath said in effect that the nun is married to Jesus Christ.

The ISKCON man said, “Your Lordship! Lord Krishna is alleged to have ‘married’ 16,000 women only. There are more than a million nuns who assert that they are married to Jesus Christ. Between the two, Krishna and Jesus Christ, who has a loose character? And what about the nuns?”

The case was dismissed.
