ISKCON to drag stand-up comedian Surleen to court

Actress and stand-up comedian Surleen Kaur is in a soup over a 2019 video in which she used the phrase ‘ISKON wale as porn wale’ during a performance.  ISKON, the world-famous religious organization, has decided to drag the comedian to the court.  For its part, the YouTube channel on which the video was playing has deleted the "offensive" post.  

"The video was found derogatory and the same has been taken down with immediate effect. Shemaroo Entertainments is committed to ensure our content is neutral and unbiased towards any religion, caste, creed or culture," the channel said in a statement of apology.

Reports say that ISKON is not going to give up.  It wants to pursue legal options against the comedian despite the video having been taken down.
