Make Bhagvad Gita National Book: VHP Urges Government

New Delhi: There are steps taken in leaps and bounds to pursue your goals and Hindutva loyalists certainly are adept at that. Mincing no words now the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Thursday asked for Bhagvad Gita to be propelled to the status of a national book which could be construed as another step towards a Hindu Rashtra.

Hindustan Times reports and we quote, “The VHP said the book should be made compulsory across all levels of education in the country as the induction of the book in the education system will help the nation stop the ‘erosion of values..'”

Quoting a VHP memeber, the portal added, “Bhagavad Gita can protect the social, cultural and spiritual values of our country, end divisions in our society and make India much more stronger. We demand the Bhagavad Gita be declared the national book of India.”

The Hindu body would soon be submitting a memorandum to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ram Nath Kovind and Union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan.

“It is because of our faulty education system. We demand that the government must make teaching-learning of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita compulsory across all levels of education to stop the erosion of values. It should be made part of the curriculum,” VHP national secretary Acharya Radha Krishna Manodi told PTI.

The VHP also urged government institutions to hold periodic scripture reading and also see sense in bureaucrats who have of late compromised on ethical values. Even teachers from minority communities should be imparted teaching of Bhagvad Gita, Manodi added.
