A Bench of Justices Pankaj Mithal and Saurabh Lavania said that the petition is vague and misconceived. While observing the plea, the Court said that the petitioner may approach appropriate authority such as Boards of High School and Intermediate Education, Uttar Pradesh or any other Board or University concerned.

“The writ Petition as filed is completely vague and misconceived and is dismissed,” the Court held.

Brahma Shankar Shastri, the petitioner who appeared and argued in person wanted Bhagwad Gita to be taught as one of the subjects of all classes. He said it was in the overall interest of society.

The Court held that “In Case, the petitioner wants to include Bhagwad Gita as one of the subjects in the syllabus of intermediate, he may approach the appropriate authority such as Board of High School and Intermediate Education, Uttar Pradesh or any other Board or University concerned, which he considers proper for including it as a subject or as a part of the syllabus of one of the subjects.”
