Dear Malati “prabhu”,
please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
You didn’t reply to my last letter. I forgot to mention that whenever you don’t reply, I assume you agree with everything I wrote.
So, I assume you like my new cartoon which I sent you in my last letter, thanks for your approval, I will circulate it to Sampradaya Sun.
It’s good that you didn’t try to ban my cartoon. This encourages free and open society.
Speaking of which, I understand you banned Bhakti Vikasa Swami’s book because “the book contains statements advocating practices that are illegal in the majority of countries in the world, notably polygamy, child marriage and child labor”.
But what about book banning? Do you consider this to be practice which is done in majority of countries and organisations in the world?
You have done big damage to this movement by showing that ISKCON has practices which make us look like Gestapo or inquisition from the middle ages.
This is serious matter, therefore I added Anuttama prabhu, who is ISKCON expert on communications and your accomplice.
Anuttama prabhu, how this book banning will make us look in 21st century United states of America?
Your resolution 313 does something which no modern government will do. Modern governments will only ban books which advocate terrorism, and Bhakti Vikasa Swami is not advocating that. Only book I can remember that I know is banned is “Mein Kampf” by Hitler das adhikari.
Do you agree that by this ban, you created big damage to our movement by making us look like Gestapo or spanish inquisition? If you don’t reply, I assume that you agree, and I will post this new poster I made to Sampradaya Sun together will this letter. You can see poster at:

Please let me know,
your servant Hanuman das
