I just received this message from Joe Guarino (Jaya Gaura) who is in Mayapur right now:
“100 Bengalis assaulted a Chec devotee while he was recording the Italian GBC being assaulted yesterday along with 2 other devotees. They tried to get his camera. Some how he held on to it. The authorities are in possession of his video and the videos of 3 other devotees being assaulted. Hansarupa presented all the video evidence this morning. GBC is reviewing it now. We are on full Red alert. Please circulate this info Ambarish says he will pull out and take the Ford name with him if these things continue.”
Can’t take time to discuss the possibilities now too much going on. I’m just trying to get some of the facts out. Hansarupa, Ruci Sevana, and myself are in clear and present danger now yesterday the Bengalis we’re attempting to assault the GBC chairman Pragosh. Only our armed private security officers we’re able to protect him.”
More to follow.

“Hansarupa, Ruchisevana and myself are in clear and present danger of being assaulted or killed at any time. But so are any other foreign devotees that get in the way of the local Bengali thugs.” Jaya Gaura assures me this is 100% accurate. It is 12:30am here in San Diego.
Jaya says that the Indian Army may be called if there is no resolution made quickly. He will call the Home Ministry office of the central government and the prime minister if there is more trouble.
“It is not okay to come. Some devotee’s have been beaten fortunately not badly I could’ve very easily went the other way. The Bengalis we’re hanging the Italian GBC over the second floor balcony at the guesthouse threatening to throw him over”.
