Sushma-SwarajNew Delhi: The Hindus have a history of 10,000 or more years, but no specific religion as such, like Islam and Roman Catholic Church. India has umpteen scriptures of Sanatana Dharma (perennial faith) in the form of 4 Vedas, 18 (out of 108) Upanishads, Epics such as Ramayana, Mahabharatha and Bhagawatha and several Puranas (age-old historical story books).

None of them is as Koran or Bible, as book that unifies the 108 crores of Indians or 90 crores of Hindus even today.

The Bharavad Gita was popularized by Gandhiji and is spiritual disciple Vinoba Bhave, besides Swami Chinmayananda of Mumbai (Andheri).

Now, comes Sushma Swaraj, BJP LokSabha leader, who says let UPA Government declare Bhagavad Gita as national scripture (the bible of all Hindus), dictated by Veda Vyasa to Ganapathi, Vyasa is a Dalit, son of a fisher woman Satyawati, who later became Kuru empress in Delhi.

When S.M. Krishna informed Lok Sabha on Monday that India had protested to Russia against its on going ban on Gita, BJP and Sushma welcomed the statement on Monday. She urged the congress government to declare Bhagavad Gita (Song of God through Lord Krishna as the national scripture book.

She was dissatisfied with Russian measures taken to honour Gita as a philosophical treatise on the eve of Mahabharatha war in Kurukshetra. She asked Russian PM Putin to take stronger steps against the ban imposed and asked UPA government to stand firm.

Krishna assured Sushma tha Indian embassy officials are seized of the situation and several Russian writers and Ambassador A.M. Kadakin (to India) were favourable disposed towards Lord Kirhna’s Gitopadesha (Sermons).
