More Controversies

kerela flood

In 2018, amid the Kerala floods, Swami Chakrapani made a controversial statement. In an interview, he said,

“I am also appealing for help in Kerala. But help should be given to those who respect nature and creatures. When roti was available to people in Kerala, they were slaughtering the cow to eat her meat. So, I mean that Hindus should help those who avoid cow meat; those trying to hurt the Hindu religion by deliberating eating cows and slaughtering them on the road should not be forgiven. People who eat beef should not receive any help. If they have to be provided for help, they should be asked to sign a pledge that they would never eat beef in the future.”

Some sections of society did not like his statement. Later, someone also hacked the official website of Hindu Mahasabha and uploaded a recipe of spicy beef curry on the website.
