I am closely familiar with the contents of the “Bhagavadgita as it is” and I am sure that there is nothing extremist about it. Please stop harassing the believers and keeping them from diong their job, because they’re the only force that can save the world today. : M.Tsyganok
The Bhagavad gita AS It IS is the most widely read version of the holy book Bhagavad gita. It has received favorable recognition by thousands of scholars and academic experts around the world. About 150 million people have read this specific version of the Bhagavad gita. Not one of them has become an extremist due to reading the book. But many millions of people have given up bad habits like drinking etc. and found a new, deep purpose in their lives.
Bhagvat Gita is not a book. It is a practise. Any one who wants to make the best use of this birth, should read it atleast once. U learn wisdomand practise courage. U become wise, compassionate and love the world like yourself. as a fellow soul, lets decorate this world! Banning a book makes it more searched for.Sarvae Janaa Sukhino Bavanthu! let all be happy!
