International Protest of Peacefully Chanting

On Saturday, October 23rd, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) members around the world, along with the wider community, came together to raise awareness and to demand protection and justice from the Bangladesh government for the religious minorities that are suffering atrocities and violence including attacks on temples, homes, property, and people.

More than 100 ISKCON-organized events took place across the globe and thousands participated in this momentous international protest of peacefully chanting while holding signs pleading for protection and justice for minority groups and Hindus in Bangladesh. National media covered many of the events, such as the Times of India and CBC.

“The fact that thousands of devotees and friends turned out for these kirtan protests around the world shows how important religious freedom and the protection of minorities is for ISKCON. We pray the Bangladeshi government hears our calls for help by stepping up to protect their minorities and bring the perpetrators of the recent attacks to justice,” said Anuttama dasa, ISKCON’s Minister of Communications.
