This is required. And Tulasī dāsa, he has also said… Tulasī dāsa is big poet in Hindi language. He has written the Rāma-carita-manas. His opinion… Not only his opinion, that is the Vedic opinion, that… He says, dhol gamar strī śūdra, paśu śūdra nārī, ei ei sab śāsana ke adhikārī (?). So this statement will not be very palatable to the Western girls. They want independence. In Chicago, when I was there, they talked about independence of the woman.

They asked me question. So I replied, “No, woman cannot be given independence.” So there was a great agitation against me. In many papers I was very much criticized. But actually it is the fact, because they are innocent, not so intelligent and… These are all practical. WE MAY AVOID DISCUSSING, BUT BHĀGAVATA IS VERY OPEN FOR DISCUSSING ALL SUBJECT MATTER. THAT IS FACT. WE SHOULD NOT HIDE ANYTHING ARTIFICIALLY. [INCLUDING THE TRUTH PRABHUPADA SPOKE OF ADOLF HITLER] WE MUST DISCUSS THE FACT. Not only here, the mention it is, the Manu-saṁhitā. Manu-saṁhitā recommends, “A woman should not be given independence.” For their interest they must be protected by father, husband, and sons, because if they are polluted, they become very dangerous.
Prabhupada from a Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 5.6.4, Vṛndāvana, November 26, 1976
Adolf Hitler was chosen by Krishna to stop the spread of Jewish atheistic communism, that is a clear fact to anyone who has studied true history with their mind free from the subversion and lies told by the Jews. Why was Hitler used as the Lord’s instrument? Because he had some qualification to be such an instrument as no ordinary person can be utilized by the Lord. Prabhupada did not preach in Russia where the influence of the demoniac communism was strong. He preached in America and Europe where Christianity was still manifest to some degree and faith in Jesus the pure devotee could be freely expressed! This is what Hitler has fought to preserve!!! So how can anyone say that Hitlers fight was not divine? It directly assisted the Sankirtana Movement and preserved a field for preaching that the Lord knew he was going to send Srila Prabhupada into in 1965!!!!
“Lord God, give us the strength that we may retain our liberty for our children and our children’s children, not only for ourselves but also for the other peoples of Europe, for this is a war which we all wage, this time, not for our German people alone, it is a war for all of Europe and with it, in the long run, for all of mankind.”
Adolf Hitler speech in Berlin, 30 January 1942
My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded only by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God’s truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before in the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice…. And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.
-Adolf Hitler, in his speech in Munich on 12 April 1922
