Gurus who abused must be removed

by Nimai Pandita das

Krsna Avatara das has a good point here ("Gurukula alumni begrundgingly vote for reorganization plan", May 6). Why are people who committed child abuse, such as Dhanurdhara Swami and Bhakti Vidya Purna Swami, gurus in ISKCON ?

Shouldn't bringing justice to the gurukuli alumni include removing ex-abusers from positions of being worshipped as good as God? If ISKCON really cared about these gurukuli alumni they would do more than just give them pocket money.
