The BJP government in Haryana has asked the School Council for Educational Research and Training (SCERT) to suggest which shlokas from the Bhagavad Gita can be introduced in the school curriculum.
The SCERT was approached after the Education Department analysed the issue. The SCERT’s recommendations would be referred to an educational consultative committee headed by retired school teacher and education activist Dina Nath Batra. Batra was behind Wendy Doniger’s book, The Hindus: An Alternative History, being withdrawn by the publisher.
