(Srila Vyasadeva shining the light of Srimad-Bhagavatam on Kali-yuga)

"One Mr. McPherson, Englishman, he was known to me. He was coming to my shop. He stated that in the First World War, he was in the war, service, and some Belgium refugees came to France because Marshall Fox, he was in charge of that area, and when he was informed that so many refugees, mostly women and children, they have come, so he became so much disturbed that 'Where shall I give them shelter in this warfield?' His advice was that 'Blow them. Finish.' So they were blown up. This is a practical... In warfield such things happen. 'Who is going to take responsibility of so many women and children in this war?' They were blown up. They came to take shelter but they were blown up. Such things happen in war. Yes. Just like in your country the real policy—to continue the Vietnam—means they cannot manage these hippies, and they are trying to send them to Vietnam and kill them. That's all. That is the policy. They cannot manage. They cannot make them sane and normal condition. They have no such policy, neither they do know it. So what to do? 'Blow him. We cannot manage them.' Therefore they are continuing. That's all. This is the policy. Do you think? Eh? What do you think? This is my suggestion. 'Unwanted persons, let them be finished.' Just like this Marshall Fox did. 'Unwanted refugees? Blow them.' And killing and blowing, oh, this is very easy thing for the animal-eaters, for the maintainers of slaughterhouse. I hear that these Naxalites have taken to slaughterhouse to learn how to kill. Do you know that? Somebody was telling. Yes. Your husband was telling. So these Naxalites, they are taken to the slaughterhouse and they are taught how to kill. Therefore they do not care. Immediately beating by rocks, and as soon as he falls down, they go away, just like slaughterhouse. They are taught. And the military men, they are also taught like that, to become cruel. A very horrible position in this Kali-yuga. Kṛṣṇa-nāma koro bhāi āra saba mithyā. You take shelter of Kṛṣṇa; otherwise so many things will happen."

(Srila Prabhupada Lecture, Calcutta, January 6, 1971)
