Kazakhstan: 12 Hare Krishna Homes Demolished

Forum 18 reports that twelve more properties belonging to Kazakhstan’s only Hare Krishna community have been destroyed. Police oversaw the June 15 demolitions, which claimed homes belonging to members of the community. Though the Hare Krishna temple remains untouched, there are fears that it will be the next target, as authorities have already ordered community members to destroy the temple themselves. Local officials have characterized the community as “non-traditional” and expressed bewilderment as to why they would want to live in Kazakhstan.
