Hare Krishna is banned in Argentina
From Our Correspondent. Buenos Aires, Jan 27
Argentina's military Government has banned oriental religious sects from proselytizing in the country. A decree declared their activities anti-national and contrary to the principles and institutions of the state.
Police yesterday shut down the Buenos Aires headquarters of the Hare Krishna movement, detaining five of its members. The Divine Light mission of the 18-year-old Guru Maharaj ji was also affected.
