'GITA' Hindus holy scripture termed EXTREMIST..........

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

‘GITA’ Hindu’s   holy  scripture termed ‘EXTREMIST’,   

creates huge uproar in  hindu  community….



In an unprecedented move, State prosecutors in Tomsk, in Siberia, recently put Bhagvad Gita say the text sows social discord and want its distribution banned.

India: Nation-wide protests are taking palce on ‘Gita’ ban!

Gita “BG” is most revered holy scripture of Hindus and is mostly followed by every Hindu. This recent move of banning ‘Gita’ and inference drawn by some experts/lawmakers that it promotes social discord and is ‘extremist’ literature has created immense discontent and is being vehemently opposed by Hindus across India.


‘Gita’ contains text & preachings from ancient “hinduism“ past in earlier ages its actual dating is not available however its believed to be very ancient. ‘Gita’ depicts epic battle of ‘Mahabharata’ wherein discourse between ‘Sri.Krishna’  (considered to be manifestation of God) to his disciple ‘Arjuna’ on the battle-field where ‘Arjuna’ is baffled over fighting/killing their own cousins/brothers ‘Kauravas’. According to BG ‘Gita’ & ‘Mahabharta’   the epic battle is drawn when Sri.Krishna’s  beloved 5 (Pandavas) are denied truth/justice/peace/determination and FREEDOM by deceitful ‘Kauravas’ who outnumber ‘Pandavas’ manyfold.

‘Kauravas’ choose army of billion as opposed to beloved-5 of Sri.Krishana choosing truth/justice/peace/determination and freedom for all!

Earlier hindu scripture ‘Gita’ created a row in Indian state Karnataka on 20 July 2011 when the state authorities directed schools to teach the Hindu holy book for three hours a week.

Indian Education Minister Visveswara Hegde Kageri said that those who did not want to learn the “Gita”      should leave    India.

Hindu scripture order prompts row


However, while Indian lawmakers this time are on a tizzy over Tomsk state banning and wondering as to why they state ‘Gita’ extremist literature?

The rational behind is still not clear, however going by what’s depicted in ‘Gita’ regarding epic battle must have prompted Tomsk state authorities to ban ‘Gita’ literature?, however what’s the real rational remains to be seen.

India a nation with population over 1.3 billion+   has around 80% Hindus, 14% Muslims, 5% Christians and 1% Sikhs with few other religions.

‘Protect Hindu rights’

“The government has taken up the issue with the Russian government and Indian embassy officials are in touch with the officials of the International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON),” Mr Krishna said.

Earlier on Tuesday, members from the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party expressed outrage over the move in Siberia to ban the holy book.

On Monday, several MPs demanded the government protect Hindu rights.

“We will not tolerate an insult to Lord Krishna,” said Laloo Yadav, leader of the Rashtriya Janata Dal party.

Bhartruhari Mahtab, leader of the Biju Janata Dal, said: “I want to know from the government what it is doing. The religious rights of Hindus in Russia should be protected. The government should impress upon the Russian authorities through diplomatic channels.”




BBC News - Russia criticism of Gita absurd, says India minister

While what will turn out of this row remains to be seen, however we know every religion preaches justice/peace/truth/determination and freedom for all therefore labeling a religion/scripture extremist does not conform to the preaching/teaching of any religion, does it?

Let’s hope the matter gets resolved amicably not resulting in any untoward incident or communal violence, as such in past ‘india’  has witnessed many communal violence on religion.
