Diresh Sinath on the left who refers to himself as DJ Dhoti is employed by the South African Broadcasting corporation referred to the consumption of beef as a justified reason for the flood in Kerala.

His tweet, “#Keralafloods. #beef+#festival = #Karma. “As you sow so shall you reap” has been met with disgust from social media users.

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.”
