India: Church official concerned about Bhagavad Gita in schools
Catholic World News - May 12, 2011
Father Anand Muttungal, a Church spokesman in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, has joined other religious leaders in criticizing a government decision that will make the Bhagavad Gita part of the state school curriculum.
Joined by Buddhist, Muslim, Sikh, and even some Hindu leaders, Father Muttungal described the introduction of the Hindu scriptures as a violation of the nation’s constitution.
