Finally a Russian court on Wednesday rejected the earlier petition seeking a ban on translation of Bhagavad Gita. It brought cheers to crores of Hindus living all over the world.

Thanks to Russian lawyers Mikahil Fralov and Alexander Sakhav, who argued vociferously against the petition which was brought in the Siberian city of Tomsk claiming it's an "extremist literature" and  it promotes "social discord" and “hatred towards non-believers”.

After reviewing the petition and responses from the state prosecutors, the judge dismissed the plea.

"We have won the case. The judge has rejected the petition," said excited chairman of Hindu Council of Russia.

External Affairs Minister SM Krishna, who earlier summoned the Russian Ambassador in New Delhi welcomed the judgement and thanked the Russian government for its support.

Thank you all who have supported this movement against the ban.
