After Shemaroo, International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) has now threatened to take legal action against online streaming platform Amazon Prime video. The religious organization has raised objections to certain dialogs made in the episode 2 of Hostel Daze series.
Calling the portrayal highly objectionable, ISKCON’s spokesperson Radharamn Das asked Amazon Prime to take down the series. Failing which, he said “we will take you to court.”
@PrimeVideoIN a notice is hereby being given to you to remove following web series on your platform in which you are suggesting as if joining ISKCON as monk is a low class activity.
This is highly objectionable to portray ISKCON monks in bad light. We will take you to court. pic.twitter.com/VDNDa3PtUP

Das further added that ISKCON has thousands of very qualified monks who have degrees from prestigious Universities like IITs.
ISKCON had earlier filed a complaint against Shemaroo for a ‘stand-up comedy’ act by ‘comedian’ Surleen Kaur who said, “Beshak hum sab ISKCON waley hain, par andar sey sun harami porn waley hain…”.
The organization however later withdrew the case after an unconditional apology by Shemaroo.
