New Delhi, Tue, 27 Dec 2011 ANI

New Delhi, Dec 27 (ANI): External Affairs Minister SM Krishna today conveyed to Russian Ambassador Alexander Kadakin India's concern over the hearing a petition seeking a ban on Bhagavad Gita in a Siberian court.


Krishna told Kadakin that the Russian Government should provide all possible help to resolve the issue.


Kadakin, on his part assured Krishna that he would try to seek a solution within his powers.


"Everything we can within the realms of powers, but you understand it is a court case the Russian government and all of us can do one thing, it can ask the people to express our love and admiration for the Gita," said Kadakin.


Earlier, the Russian envoy had met Indian Foreign Secretary, Ranjan Mathai, over the uproar caused by news of a possible ban on Bhagavad Gita.


Kadakin said that he had himself read the holy book and considers the book to be of a high stature.


The translation up for trial is called "Bhagavad Gita as It Is," and is central to the global 'Hare Krishna' movement. Members of the movement link the case against the text to the Russian Orthodox Church, which they claim wants to limit their activities. (ANI)
