VHP wants Shrimad Bhagwat Gita in students syllabus


The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) has demanded that the Bhagwad Gita be included in school curricula without delay. In a statement issued here on Thursday, VHP spokesperson Vinod Bansal said a resolution passed at a meeting held at the Parishad headquarters demanded that the Mahabharata in its entirety, or at least the Bhagwad Gita, should form part of the school curricula at the State and Central levels as the solution to all contemporary problems lies in the study of these epics. “If our children had been brought up in the traditions of invaluable epics such as the Mahabharata and theBhagwad Gita, India would have never had to face the kind of problems we are facing today,” said the VHP vice-president Ram Krishna Srivastava.
