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.
