Russian court dismisses plea to ban Bhagvad Gita
New Delhi, Dec 28 (ANI): A Russian court has turned down a petition that asked for a ban on a translated version of Bhagvad Gita.
"We are happy to learn that the legal case in connection with the publication, 'Bhagvad Gita as it is', has been dismissed by the Hon'ble Court in Tomsk in the Russian Federation. We appreciate this sensible resolution of a sensitive issue and are glad to put this episode behind us," said MEA official spokesperson Vishnu Prakash in response to a question.
"We also appreciate the efforts of all friends in Russia who made this outcome possible," he added.
Reports on a ban on Bhagvad Gita in Russia had created a huge uproar in Parliament as various members condemned the move and asked the Central Government to take prompt measures in this regard.
The case filed by state prosecutors in the Siberian city of Tomsk stated that the translated version of the Bhagvad Gita was extremist and would create a divide among the people of different beliefs. (ANI)
