“This world is also the kingdom of God, why people are crying? Why they are suffering? People will say ‘Well since everything is controlled by God, why we are suffering?’ 
Because the people have discarded Krishna. They have renounced the Supreme Personality of Godhead, turned their face away from Krishna, and they are desiring instead simply their own sense gratification, they are overcome by the demoniac influence.”
