YADGIR – After supporting Hijab ban in schools and colleges, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Saturday said that the Bhagavd Gita should form a part of the school syllabus.

The matter has been discussed in Gujarat only on Friday. “Our education minister has been discussing about inclusion of the Bhagavd Gita in the syllabus. After getting information from the education department in this regard, a decision will be taken on it,” he informed.

Asked whether Bhagavad Gita would teach moral lessons, he retorted that if not for Bhagavad Gita, which other scripture can teach morals to children.

CM Bommai asked not to create unnecessary confusion in this regard.

If Bhagavad Gita is made part of the syllabus, it will help children with intelligence, he claimed.

On Friday, Education Minister B.C. Nagesh stated that a decision on mandating the teachings of Bhagavad Gita to school children will be taken after consulting Chief Minister Bommai.

However, D.K. Shivakumar, State Congress President has stated that there are lessons on Ramayan, Bhagavad Gita and other religious holy books in the syllabus. There is no necessity to glorify anything now, he opined. (With inputs from IANS)
