The power of collective protest


I would like to use this site to acknowledge all the efforts that contributed to today’s storm in the Indian parliament, the Lok Sabha. The furore was caused by the attempted ban of the Bhagavad-gita as an ‘extremist’ literature in the town of Tomsk, Siberia.

Yesterday I raised the issue during a reading of the entire Bhagavad-gita with 400 participants and 150 online. I asked them to sign the petition of protest. Simultaneous protests were taking part in India and in other parts of the world.

The attempt to ban the Gita in Russia – nationally – through the aegis of a local court is extremely misguided. I am very happy that Indian politicians have responded in outrage to the attempted censure of the holy book of the Hindu faith, to the point of the speaker of Parliament having to close proceedings.
