There was a case filed by a few people in a court in Warsaw, Poland against ISKCON (Hare Krishna’s, Radha Krishna Temple). Noting that ISKCON was gaining followers in Poland, a nun filed a case before a Judicial Magistrate.
The nun prayed that ISKCON should be banned because its followers were glorifying a Character called Krishna 'Who was loose in morals, having married 16,108 Gopikas'.
When the case came up for hearing the ISKCON defendant requested the Judge to ask the nun to repeat the oath she had taken when she was ordained as a nun.
The Judge asked the nun to recite the oath loudly. She would not. ISKCON man asked the Judge whether he could read it out for the nun. The Judge said go ahead. The pledge was in effect that 'she (the nun) is married to Jesus Christ'.
ISKCON man said, "Your Lordship! Lord Krishna is alleged to have 'married' 16,108 women. There are more than a million nuns who assert that they are married to Jesus Christ. Between the two, who is the loose character?"

The Judge dismissed the case.
It's sad that people speculate on the matter of faith. If u want to know, 1st read scriptures. Not just start criticizing without any understanding. Sanatan Dharma is very deep. You have all the right to ask questions, but don't criticize without an attempt to understand it.
