Response to "a Kuli"
By Ravindra Svarupa dasa

An anonymous letter ("a Kuli") was sent to me, containing several allegations. My responses are inserted below:

The office of child abuse has not been instructed to not go after anyone. I’ve checked this story out before, and found it not true. If there is any reliable testimony to the contrary, let me know, and I will follow up on it.

I have no recollection of any mother reporting to me in 1985 that "two Gurus were abusing the boys in Vrindavan." Nor did I "pass a resolution Feb. 1985." I was not elected to the GBC until Feb. 1987. Please send me a copy of "the letter."

This is news to me. Please send your evidence.

> This is devotional service?
> I don’t think so.

No, of course not.
On the other hand, is it the truth?
I don’t think so.

But I’ll check it out, if you give me something tangible to go on.

> Yours,

Yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada,
