    HC Dismisses PIL Against Introduction of Gita in Schools

    Jabalpur | Jan 27, 2012

    Madhya Pradesh High Court today dismissed a petition which had challenged state government's decision to introduce lessons based on Bhagvad Gita in the school curriculum from the next academic year.

    The division bench of Justices Ajit Singh and Sanjay Yadav dismissed the petition filed by Catholic Bishop Council's spokesperson, anand Mutangal. Judges said Gita is not just a religious scripture, but "a way of life", as it teaches morality and importance of maintaining social justice.

    The petitioner's lawyer, Rajesh Chandra, had said that other religious scriptures such as Quran and Bible too should be taught.

    During an earlier hearing of the case, the bench had directed advocate Chandra to read the Gita, granting him two months' time for this purpose.

    Today, he stated in the court that he read Gita, but was unable to comprehend it fully.

    The bench then dismissed the petition, saying that Gita was not just a religious scripture, but a way of life.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
