    A Sikh body in Jammu and Kashmir today said it is contemplating to move court against Karnataka Education Minister for his reported remarks that ''those who oppose the teachings of Bhagavad Gita in schools should quit the country''.

    "We are contemplating to initiate criminal proceedings against Karnataka Education Minister Vishwanath Hegde Kageri for his communal statements," JK Sikh United Front chief Sudershan Singh Wazir told reporters here.

    "Kageri's statements brought out the true communal and fascists agenda of BJP to fore," he said.

    The former JK state Gurudwara Parbandak Board chairman said the BJP leader's statement that Gita is the only belief which has originated from India and all other religions have come from outside is shocking.

    "He is perhaps ignorant of the fact that there are other beliefs like Sikhism, Buddhism and Jainism, which have also originated from the same motherland," he said, adding that the Sikhs will not tolerate any campaign of hatred.

    Kageri had reportedly remarked at Kolar in Karnataka that those opposing inclusion of Bhagavad Gita in school curriculum should leave the country.

    His comments had come after the Karnataka government issued a controversial circular on teaching of Bhagavad Gita in primary and higher secondary schools in the state.

    To hold a Public /political post one must be literate but sadly in India there is no such binding. As such people like V.H.Kageri find themselves holding ministerial posts and lack the basic knowledge that apart from Hinduism (sadly which has 330 million gods and goddesses) there are other religions like, jainism, buddhism and the Sikhism that are indigenous.

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!
