Keributan parlemen menghadapi larangan di Rusia

Anggota parlemen meminta pemerintah untuk menentang larangan Rusia terhadap kitab suci yang dicap sebagai literatur "ekstremis". Pengadilan Rusia akan memberikan putusan akhir pada Bhagavad Gita hari ini.

nggota parlemen di seluruh spektrum politik pada hari Senin meminta pemerintah untuk memastikan bahwa hak-hak beragama umat Hindu di Rusia dilindungi setelah seorang anggota menunjukkan laporan IANS tentang Bhagavad Gita yang menghadapi larangan dan prospek itu dicap sebagai literatur "ekstremis" di sana. .

Anggota parlemen yang marah memaksa penundaan Lok Sabha hingga pukul 14:00 setelah pemimpin Biju Janata Dal Bhartruhari Mahtab mengangkat masalah ini di rumah dan meminta pemerintah untuk segera campur tangan untuk memastikan kebebasan beragama umat Hindu di Rusia.

Dia mengatakan pengadilan di kota Tomsk Siberia akan memberikan putusan akhir pada Senin dalam kasus yang diajukan oleh jaksa negara, seperti yang dilaporkan oleh IANS Sabtu ketika Perdana Menteri Manmohan Singh melakukan kunjungan resmi ke Moskow.

"Saya ingin tahu dari pemerintah apa yang dilakukannya. Hak beragama umat Hindu di Rusia harus dilindungi. Pemerintah harus memberi kesan kepada otoritas Rusia melalui saluran diplomatik," katanya.

Kasus tersebut, yang telah berlangsung di pengadilan Tomsk sejak Juni, mencari larangan atas terjemahan bahasa Rusia dari "Bhagavad Gita As It Is" yang ditulis oleh AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, pendiri International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) .

Ia juga menginginkan teks agama Hindu dilarang di Rusia, dinyatakan sebagai literatur yang menyebarkan "perpecahan sosial", dan distribusinya di tanah Rusia dianggap ilegal.

Orang India di Moskow, berjumlah sekitar 15.000, dan pengikut gerakan keagamaan ISKCON di Rusia telah meminta pemerintah India untuk campur tangan secara diplomatis untuk menyelesaikan masalah demi mendukung kitab suci, bagian penting dari epik India Mahabharata yang ditulis oleh resi Ved Vyas.

Ketika Mahtab mengangkat masalah ini, majelis rendah jatuh ke dalam kekacauan, dengan anggota parlemen mendesak Ketua Meira Kumar untuk membiarkan mereka berbicara tentang masalah tersebut. Dia, bagaimanapun, menolak dan malah meminta mereka untuk mengirim catatan dan bergaul dengan Mahtab.

Lalu Prasad dari Rashtriya Janata Dal (RLD) terdengar meneriakkan bahwa kitab suci Hindu tidak mengajarkan ekstremisme.

Anggota Partai Bharatiya Janata (BJP) juga terlihat bangkit dari kursi mereka untuk memprotes masalah ini sebelum Meira Kumar menunda rumah hingga pukul 14:00.


Parliament ruckus over Bhagavad Gita facing ban in Russia

MPs ask govt to oppose Russia's ban on the holy book which is being branded as "an extremist" literature. The Russian court will deliver its final verdict on Bhagavad Gita today

Parliamentarians across the political spectrum on Monday asked the government to ensure that the religious rights of Hindus in Russia are protected after a member pointed out an IANS report about the Bhagavad Gita facing a ban and the prospect of it being branded as "extremist" literature there.

Angry MPs forced the adjournment of the Lok Sabha till 2 p.m. after Biju Janata Dal leader Bhartruhari Mahtab raised the issue in the house and asked the government to intervene immediately to ensure the religious freedom of Hindus in Russia.

He said a court in Siberia's Tomsk city was set to deliver its final verdict on Monday in a case filed by state prosecutors, as was reported by IANS Saturday when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was on an official visit to Moscow.

"I want to know from the government what it is doing. The religious rights of Hindus in Russia should be protected. The government should impress upon the Russian authorities through diplomatic channels," he said.

The case, which has been going on in the Tomsk court since June, seeks a ban on a Russian translation of the "Bhagavad Gita As It Is" written by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).

It also wants the Hindu religious text banned in Russia, declared as literature spreading "social discord", and its distribution on Russian soil rendered illegal.

Indians in Moscow, numbering about 15,000, and followers of the ISKCON religious movement in Russia have appealed to the Indian government to intervene diplomatically to resolve the issue in favour of the scripture, an important part of Indian epic Mahabharata written by sage Ved Vyas.

When Mahtab raised the issue, the lower house plunged into chaos, with MPs urging Speaker Meira Kumar to let them speak on the matter. She, however, refused and instead asked them to send notes and associate with Mahtab.

Lalu Prasad of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RLD) was heard shouting that the Hindu scripture does not preach extremism.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members were also seen rising from their seats to protest the issue before Meira Kumar adjourned the house till 2 p.m. https://www.indiatoday.in/india/north/story/parliament-ruckus-over-bhagvad-gita-facing-ban-in-russia-149202-2011-12-19
