SYNONYMS
prāṇinām—when the living entities; hanyamānānām—being killed; dīnānām—of the poor; akṛta-āgasām—of the faultless; strīṇām—of the women; nigṛhyamāṇānām—being tortured; kopiteṣu—being enraged; mahātmasu—when the great souls.
TRANSLATION
They will kill poor, faultless living entities, torture women and enrage the great souls.
PURPORT
Demoniac activities are predominant when innocent, faultless living entities are killed, women are tortured, and the great souls engaged in Kṛṣṇa consciousness are enraged. In a demoniac society, innocent animals are killed to satisfy the tongue, and women are tortured by unnecessary sexual indulgence. Where there are women and meat, there must be liquor and sex indulgence. When these are prominent in society, by God’s grace one can expect a change in the social order by the Lord Himself or by His bona fide representative.
