A pro-Putin youth outfit has been booked on charges of "extremism" for attacking Hindu culture in Russia's far eastern city of Khabarovsk, reports said.

The Khabarovsk unit of 'Molodaya Gvardia' (Young Guards), the youth wing of PM Vladimir Putin-led United Russia party, distributed a leaflet at the festival of Indian culture organized by International Society of Krishna Consciousness in the city.

In the leaflet, the outfit cautions Russians from sending their children to courses of Yoga and Indian dances, the website of Kremlin-critic and former Chess Champion Garry Kasparov reported.

"Under the wrapper of presentable Indian aesthetics, behind the bright dresses and peace loving statements hides a cruel and aggressive sect, dangerous for the health and wellbeing of the citizens," the leaflet said.

It said the followers of Krishna are "infamous in the world for crimes against humanity and society and were involved in drugtrafficking and arms trade".
