Bhakti Vikas swami attacks other GBC acharyas (ISKCON) ys pd

PADA: Notice, GBC guru "Bhakti Vikas swami" has been saying that his co-guru -- "Bhakti Tirtha swami" (John Favors) -- is "a demon" who "is crazy" and who is "not qualified to initiate disciples." Yet Bhakti Tirtha swami was never stopped from being an initiating guru? Rather, he was glorified by the GBC as "a pure devotee" after he departed? Why are some GBC saying that their gurus are "demons" while others are saying their gurus are "pure devotees"? ys pd  

LETTER FROM BHAKTI VIKAS SWAMI: "Bhakti Tirtha Swami wrote (about Bhakti Vikas swami) "I will no longer participate in these discussions. Beyond a doubt HH Bhakti Vikasa Maharaj is biased towards me. I don't know how you see (his) vaisnava aparadhas to be Guru Sadhu and Sastra or requesting devotees to disregard the GBC as bona-fide. [...] The leaders in Croatia are writing a letter to the EC and to HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami with complaints about his visit to Croatia, his calling me a demon, his demanding to them not to let me initiate there, for he was arranging for me to be rejected as a Guru. His influence on his disciples where they spent hours talking to various disciples of mine that -- I was not bona-fide and that to those who were aspiring for me that they should reject me as their guru for he was going to try to petition to have me rejected as a guru. His letters that I am a crazy man are with the executive committee." (Bhakti Tirtha Swami, 1/9/2003, PAMHO Text 7194737)"
