Gita row: VHP warns of protests

VHP warned of agitations outside Russian offices in the country if any ban is imposed on Bhagwad Gita by a court in Siberia.



New Delhi: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad(VHP)
on Tuesday warned of agitations outside Russian offices in the
country if any ban is imposed on Bhagwad Gita by a court in
Siberia hearing a case regarding the sacred religious text.
VHP`s International Working President Pravin Togadia in a
statement demanded immediate dismissal of the case in Tomsk
city and prosecution against those who dared to make an
"obnoxious" challenge against the religious scripture revered
so highly by "Bharat’s majority."
Togadia claimed that the move against Gita in Russia was
aimed to divert public attention from the real local issues
there.

Togadia also said there would be agitations against the
Government of India if any ban by the Siberian court goes
unchallenged.
