“If it is right thing, then I am right to force you.”

“If it is right thing, then I am right to force you.”

Prabhupada said, “If it is right thing, then I am right to force you.” – Morning walk, 29 January 1977, Bhuvanesvara

Hari-sauri: Well, you may say that I’m unhappy with the authority I’ve got now, but if you force me to accept Krishna consciousness when I don’t want it, then that will also make me unhappy.

Prabhupada: No, if it is right thing, then I am right to force you.

Satsvarupa: This is against our democratic spirit in the West. It…

Prabhupada: Democratic means “demoncratic.”

Satsvarupa: That’s why they revolted against the kings, so that they wouldn’t have to be forced. “Give me liberty or give me death.”

Hari-sauri: But under that banner of saying “This is good for you,” you can force me to do all kinds of things.

Prabhupada: Yes. Yes, that is king’s duty. Then force. Otherwise why there is military force?

“Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s.”

“Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s.”

Prabhupada said, “Those who are actually human being, you have to give them Krishna. And those who are mudhas, we have to kill them. This is our business. Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s. We are not nonviolent. We are violent to the mudhas.” – Morning walk, 21 January 1976, Mayapur

“Still, if you say, ‘You are mudha,’ they become angry. Such mudhas, rascals, they are in the government service. And if you say that ‘You are mudhas,’ he becomes angry. Upadeso hi murkhanam prakopaya na santaye: ‘If a mudha is advised nice instruction, he becomes angry.’ He does not take it. Payah-panam bhujanganam kevalam visa-vardhanam: ‘If you give milk and banana to a snake, you simply increase his poison.’ One day he will come-(growls). You see? ‘I have given you milk and you…’ ‘Yes, that is my nature. Yes. You give me milk, and I am prepared to kill you.’ This is mudha. We have to kill this civilization of mudhas. That is Krishna consciousness movement. Paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam [BG 4.8]. Those who are actually human being, you have to give them Krishna. And those who are mudhas, we have to kill them. This is our business. Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s. We are not nonviolent. We are violent to the mudhas.”

“Either establish Krishna conscious government or kill them – bas, finish.”

“Either establish Krishna conscious government or kill them – bas, finish.”

Prabhupada said, “Yes, that is my mission. That is Krishna’s mission, paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam [BG 4.8], to kill all these demons, crazy demons. I have no such power; otherwise I would have killed them. Either establish Krishna conscious government or kill them – bas, finish. I would have done that, violence.” – Room conversation, 25 February 1977, Mayapur

Prabhupada: If you can introduce this system, varnasrama, then it will establish. No more change. This is a rascal’s government, this democracy.

 

Tamala Krishna: “Demoncracy.”

 

Prabhupada: “Demoncracy.”

 

Hari-Sauri: “Demon-crazy.”

 

Prabhupada: “Demon-crazy.” (laughter) Demon and crazy. Not only demon… There are demons whose brain is all right, but they are crazy also.

 

Tamala Krishna: (laughing) Demon-crazy.

 

Prabhupada: And introduce books in the school, colleges, libraries, so nice books. There is no doubt about it. There is no such literature throughout the world.

 

Tamala Krishna: Gradually some of the people are beginning to understand what you’re up to, Srila Prabhupada. Some of these big demons in America especially, they are beginning to understand that you are the most dangerous personality in the world to them.

 

Prabhupada: To kill “demon-crazy,” LSD. (laughs) Yes, that is my mission. That is Krishna’s mission, paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam [BG 4.8], to kill all these demons, crazy demons. I have no such power; otherwise I would have killed them. Either establish Krishna conscious government or kill them – bas, finish. I would have done that, violence.

“…If one is able to kill, then one should by force cut out the blasphemer’s tongue and kill the offender…”

“…If one is able to kill, then one should by force cut out the blasphemer’s tongue and kill the offender…”

Prabhupada said, “If one happens to be a ksatriya he has the power to punish any man; therefore a ksatriya should at once cut out the tongue of the vilifier and kill him.” – SB 4.4.17, purport

Translation:

Sati continued: If one hears an irresponsible person blaspheme the master and controller of religion, one should block his ears and go away if unable to punish him. But if one is able to kill, then one should by force cut out the blasphemer’s tongue and kill the offender, and after that one should give up his own life.

Purport:

The argument offered by Sati is that a person who vilifies a great personality is the lowest of all creatures. But, by the same argument, Daksha could also defend himself by saying that since he was a Prajapati, the master of many living creatures and one of the great officers of the great universal affairs, his position was so exalted that Sati should accept his good qualities instead of vilifying him. The answer to that argument is that Sati was not vilifying but defending. If possible she should have cut out Daksha’s tongue because he blasphemed Lord Siva. In other words, since Lord Siva is the protector of religion, a person who vilifies him should be killed at once, and after killing such a person, one should give up one’s life. That is the process, but because Daksha happened to be the father of Sati, she decided not to kill him but to give up her own life in order to compensate for the great sin she had committed by hearing blasphemy of Lord Siva. The instruction set forth here in Srimad-Bhagavatam is that one should not tolerate at any cost the activities of a person who vilifies or blasphemes an authority. If one is a brahmana he should not give up his body because by doing so he would be responsible for killing a brahmana; therefore a brahmana should leave the place or block his ears so that he will not hear the blasphemy. If one happens to be a ksatriya he has the power to punish any man; therefore a ksatriya should at once cut out the tongue of the vilifier and kill him. But as far as the vaisyas and sudras are concerned, they should immediately give up their bodies. Sati decided to give up her body because she thought herself to be among the sudras and vaisyas. As stated in Bhagavad-gita (9.32), striyo vaisyas tatha sudrah. Women, laborers and the mercantile class are on the same level. Thus since it is recommended that vaisyas and sudras should immediately give up their bodies upon hearing blasphemy of an exalted person like Lord Siva, she decided to give up her life.

“Killing, therefore, is not always bad.”

“Killing, therefore, is not always bad.”

Prabhupada said, “Killing, therefore, is not always bad. If the killing is done by the Supreme Personality of Godhead or His devotee or in great sacrifices, it is for the benefit of the entity killed in that way. Material so-called nonviolence is very insignificant in comparison to killing done by the Supreme Personality of Godhead or His devotees.” – SB 4.11.5, purport

“We have to kill this civilization of mudhas. That is Krishna consciousness movement.”

“We have to kill this civilization of mudhas. That is Krishna consciousness movement.”

Prabhupada said, “We have to kill this civilization of mudhas. That is Krishna consciousness movement. Paritranaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam [BG 4.8]. Those who are actually human being, you have to give them Krishna. And those who are mudhas, we have to kill them. This is our business. Kill all the mudhas and give Krishna to the sane man. Yes. That will prove that you are really Krishna’s. We are not nonviolent. We are violent to the mudhas.” – Morning walk, 21 January 1976, Mayapur

“The same process as the Mohammedans did, with sword and Koran, we’ll have to do that.”

“The same process as the Mohammedans did, with sword and Koran, we’ll have to do that.”

Prabhupada said, “When there will be military march of Krishna conscious soldiers. Anyone who does not believe in Krishna, ‘Blam!’ Yes. The same process as the Mohammedans did, with sword and Koran, we’ll have to do that. ‘Do you believe in Krishna or not?’ ‘No, sir.’ ‘Blam!’ Finished.” – Morning walk, 15 March 1974, Vrindavana
