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


Ban Storms  indian Parliament over terming ‘Gita’ extremist…..

‘Gita’ and Mahabharata are holiest scriptures for Hindus and almost every hindu follows these scriptures however, it has created a row in India and Russia wherein there is a case going-on of Courts in Russia that has termed these scriptures as   ‘EXTREMIST’.



Why is Hindu ‘Gita’ scripture considered ‘Extremist’?

No-one is quite sure yet, since the final hearing is on Dec28th 2011 when court is expected to provide final verdict.


However, there are number of reason that appears as to why ‘Gita’ is being termed as ‘Extremist’ Literature/scripture, actually ‘Gita’ is a discourse between Sri.Krishna (considered God) to his desciple ‘Arjuna’ wherein Sri.Kirshna instructs and ask Arjuna to pick-up WEAPONS and FIRE-on their brothers/elders according to ‘Gita’ and Mahabharata.

‘Sri.Krishana’   asks/insructs   ‘Arjuna’  to FIRE weapons on their brothers/elders.

Therefore, this extreme act of firing weapons on brothers/elders is somewhat ‘extremist’ perhaps in today’s time its termed    ‘TERRORIST’, that’s what has been taken into-account it seems?

Terming ‘Gita’ Extremist has created huge uproar by Hindus

However, as world has progressed and evolved we have seen again and again any-act of picking-up weapon and firing except police/military is an act of ‘extremist’ and ‘terrorist’ since, everyone has right to live life under JUSTICE/PEACE/TRUTH/DETERMINATOIN and FREEDOM and that was also  true in those times that hindus holy scripture depicts in ‘Gita’ and Mahabharata when Sri.Krishana (considered GOD) asks Arjuna/brothers to fire-on weapons on their brothers/cousins.

Massive protests by Hindus across india.

Parliament of India has come to stand-still,

since this issue errupted (more than 4 days ago):



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

There could be moreon this latest row on ‘Gita’ termed ‘extremist’ since this particular version is promoted by ISKCON that is written by Prabhupada founder of ISKCON.
