The power of Leaders: Bhagwad Geeta ban in Russia issue

It doesn’t matter who you are and what is your strength when it comes to commitment.

Recently when Bhagwad Geeta got banned in Russia, the followers erupted and combated the decision in spite of living in another country. The Russian translation of ‘Bhagwad Geeta – As It Is’ was banned on the grounds being “an extremist” literature.

“It also wants the Hindu religious texts banned in Russia and declared it as a literature spreading “social discord” and its distribution on Russian soil rendered illegal.” Informed Sunday Times, 18 December, 2011.

The followers of ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness) appealed the Prime Minister to intervene about the issue, resolve and lift the ban from the scripture. “Speaking in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday, S.M. Krishna, external affairs minister, said the Indian government is “closely monitoring the case” and that the ban is likely being sought by “ignorant, misled and motivated individuals.”” India Real Time reported.
