Bengaluru: A new committee is in the offing to recommend whether Bhagavad Gita should be included in the school syllabus in the state.

Karnataka Minister for Education B.C. Nagesh on Monday informed the legislative council that a committee would be formed to decide on the inclusion of Bhagavad Gita in the school syllabus

“As per the National Education Policy (NEP), on the lines of Gujarat state, Bhagavad Gita will be introduced in the state after consulting educational experts also,” Minister Nagesh explained while answering a question in the Legislative Council.

Raising the issue in the Zero Hour, BJP MLC Pranesh demanded that Bhagavad Gita must be included in the curriculum in the academic year 2022-23. “Gujrat government has introduced Bhagavad Gita in schools as per the National Education Policy (NEP).”

Responding to this, Minister Nagesh stated that the demand for introducing moral education has been growing.

“We will form a committee to seek opinion on the inclusion of Bhagavad Gita into the syllabus. Once the committee is formed, the matter will be discussed with CM Bommai and educational experts and a decision would be taken in this regard,” he stated.

Answering another question regarding the publication and distribution of textbooks to the government schools, he assured that textbooks would be distributed at the beginning when schools would start with the new academic year in two months.
