An SABC staffer, employed at Lotus FM has found himself in hot water after posting a tweet insinuating that the people of Kerala deserve the devastation of the flood.
- Lotus FM staffer apologizes for Kerala floods rant; does not take down offending post
- Lotus FM RJ Kerala tweet, here’s what social media is saying
Sinath has defended his tweet by stating that his religious beliefs as taught by the International Society for Krsna Consciousness justify his stance on the disaster-struck state of Kerala, India.
Livashlin Naidoo was outraged by the tweet questioned Sinath’s employers Lotus FM over the tweet,
@Lotusfm is this the calibre of individuals the #SABC employees, who see fit to make light of the #KeralaFloods victim. I’m absolutely disgusted and appalled by this behaviour. The loss of human life is a real tragedy and to be equated with imaginary divine justice.
In a response to Naidoo, Sinath responded,
“Hey Mr Naidoo. As you are entitled to your opinions, I am also entitled to mines. I base my comments on a sound spiritual belief based on the teachings of Bhagavad Gita as it is and Srimad Bhagavatam as given to us by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada.”
