Why Boar or Pork iS Ha-Ram for Muslims

There is an instance that a Mussulman was attacked by a boar.
A wild boar. So when the boar attacked him, the Musselmans, when they do not like they say, “Haram. Haram.” Condemn means haram. So when the boar attacked him he said haram. “Haram!” But it acted, ha rama, and he got salvation. Do you follow what I say? A Mussulman said, ’ha ram. Ha ram, he condemned. It is abominable. That is the meaning of Urdu, haram. But at the time of death, when the boar attacked him, he said, “Haram.” So it acted ha rama. Ha, he rama. It acted, chanting the name of Rama, Hare Rama. He meant something else, but it acted as beneficial as chanting He rama. So therefore this Hare Krsna mantra, either you chant seriously, or those who are criticizing us, jokingly, the effect will be same. So anyway let them chant Hare Krsna. Do you follow? Even they do not take it seriously, if they imitate, joke, still they’ll be benefited .
