After Gujarat, Bhagavad Gita can be included in the school curriculum of Karnataka also. State Education Minister B.C. Nagesh indicated this on Friday. He said that Bhagavad Gita is not only for Hindus, it is for all. If experts are to be believed, it must be taught in school.

This step will be implemented from the academic year 2022-23. This decision of the government will be applicable to all government and aided schools of Gujarat Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education.
