Does proposal to introduce the Bhagavad Gita in Karnataka schools smack of politics?Bhagavad Gita had been in news over a controversy in Russia recently. Court decision there helped to lift ban on Gita. The other day Government of Karnataka mooted a proposal for introducing Gita in schools. There have been reactions to it and many political parties take it as an attempt to saffronise education in Karnataka. Chief Minister has maintained that Gita did not belong to a particular religion or a sect but has universal teachings. Girish Karnad, the famous actor in Karnataka has also voiced against introducing it.
