Brahmin outfit demands Gita to be made
Yogakshema Sabha president Akeeraman Kalidasan Bhattathiripad said that it was unfortunate that a controversy had been triggered on this issue.
"Mahatma Gandhi had said the Gita was his mother. C Rajagopalachary had observed that the Gita would have been declared a holy scripture if it was born in any other country," he said in a statement.
"The Gita is against all sorts of superstition. Its central message is about energising the physical and mental prowess to carry out one's duty and thereby lead a meaningul life with a true sense of justice," he said.
Instead of creating a controversy over it, people professing all faiths should come forward to make it the "national scripture," he said
