Hindu religious texts — the Ramayana, the Gita, and the Mahabharata — will be included in Madhya Pradesh’s school syllabus, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan made said on Monday.
While addressing a gathering in the presence of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari here, Chouhan said: “Ram Hindustan Ki Pehchan Hai (Ram is the identity of India).”
He said “our” religious “granthas” (scriptures) are capable to educate people morally, so “why can’t these granthas be taught in schools”.
The Chief Minister added that, “I am saying this also being the Chief Minister. We have decided to teach Ramayana, Gita, and Mahabharata’s glorious chapters even in government schools.”
However, it’s not the first time when an announcement for including Hindu religious textbooks were made by the ruling BJP in the past few years. State Higher education minister Mohan Yadav in 2020 had said Hindu religious texts will be included in both schools and higher educational institutions.
