I came across a Kolkata Telegraph editorial on the Gita. The editorial criticizes Judge Srivastava for his suggestion that the Gita should be made a national text. The editorial then goes on to make certain remarks about Hinduism and the Gita. I would in this article only discuss the points made by the editorial about Hinduism and the Gita. I will first present the entire Telegraph editorial, then present the key ideas of the editorial, compare and contrast these ideas with the Gita and then make some general comments on our secular press.
