Starting as far back as the 70’s, there is ongoing proof of child abuse in one form or another connected with the ISKCON organization. In the year 2000, there was a $400 million dollar lawsuit filed against the ISKCON organization for the child abuse/rape of potentially more than one thousand innocent young kids. Plaintiffs' attorney Windle Turley called the abuse "the most unthinkable abuse and maltreatment of little children we have seen. It includes rape, sexual abuse, physical torture and emotional terror of children as young as 3 years of age.”

"Robin George contended that the Hare Krishna’s prey on minors, she was 14 at the time when she left her parents' Cypress home to join the Hare Krishna’s. At a civil trial later, jurors found that the Krishna’s had brainwashed her and kept her hidden from her frantic parents. They even found that her father's fatal heart attack was related to the stress from the months he spent searching in vain across the country for his daughter. The group was not protected by the Constitution for the emotional distress it caused in deceiving the parents by pretending not to know their daughter's whereabouts, the court held."

“Of course, for 5 and 6 year-olds, all that meditation, chanting and bowing seemed unbearable, particularly since they were ordered not to talk, fidget or slouch during the four-hour program. Only then would they be served breakfast — a cup of hot milk and cold oatmeal slapped on wax paper, to be eaten with the right hand only. Too often a cockroach found its way into the meal. The temple was infested with these "flying dates" since it was against the teachings to exterminate anything. "If milk spilled on the floor, you had to lick it up," Rittenour recalls. There was no such thing as leftovers; what you didn't eat at one meal, you were served at the next, or the next. "One time as a kid they forced me to eat some ginger root and I threw up. They made me lick the vomit off the floor."
