10 марта 2020 года в Женеве на 43 сессии ООН выступил представитель Центра содействия сохранению и развитию индийской культуры «Шри Пракаш Дхам» в Европейском Союзе - Франк Шульц. Он представил доклад «Нападки, совершаемые на лидера классического индуизма в РФ Шри Пракаша Джи Александром Дворкиным».

Шри Пракаш Джи, а также его семья и последователи из-за их религиозной принадлежности уже четыре года являются жертвами атак радикального сектоведа А.Л.Дворкина.

Франк Шульц призвал международное сообщество принять соответствующие меры против А.Л Дворкина и его организации.





Франк Шульц, представитель «Шри Пракаш Дхам»

Thank you, Mrs. President,

I, Frank Schulze, would like to share a case of religious persecution in Russia through the example of the “Shri Prakash Dham” Indian cultural center, which I represent in the EU and Germany.

The official leader of Hinduism in Russia – Shri Prakash Ji has been facing attacks on his reputation and safety at the hands of a notoriously famous orthodox Christian radical Alexander Dvorkin for the past four years. Shri Prakash Ji is also a popular spiritual master with a discipleship of hundreds of thousands.

Dvorkin’s organization RATSIRS employs all sorts of scare tactics against the Hindu community in Russia. Shri Prakash Ji has been severely defamed on the internet, which lead to fake news on media and subsequently to threats from his goons.

Alexander Dvorkin has associates in the Russian governmental structures, and even media. He uses these connections to threaten Hindus in Russia. An online change.org petition in support of Shri Prakash Ji has accumulated more than 60,000 signatures.

In 2017 Dvorkin’s hatred speeches directed towards Shri Prakash Ji, resulted in the burning of his effigy in New-Delhi in front of the Russian embassy.

Hindus do not have a temple in Russia for their religious practices except for Shri Prakash Ji’s Ashram in Moscow region. Speaking today at the UN Human Rights Council, I would like to reach out to the policy makers of Russia and demand the implementation of the basic human rights of the Hindu population in Russia.

Hindus in Russia would like to have a temple and make their religion officially recognized by the government of Russia. Legal sanctions must be taken against Dvorkin who still enjoys free entry to the US and the EU.
