The Bhagavad Gita is a Christian forgery which has become popular among many gullible Hindus who are mainly from the lower castes of Hindus known collectively as Vaishnavs. The Bhagavad Gita, also known as the "Song of God," is claimed to be spoken by Krishna himself. However, there are several cogent reasons why this book does not belong in the canon of Hindu Scripture:
Firstly, the Bhagavad Gita is said to have been written during the 4th century CE, after the Council of Nicea in 325 CE, which is a time when Christianity was beginning to spread throughout India.
Additionally, the Bhagavad Gita contains many references to Christian ideas, such as the concept of a soul and the idea of an afterlife, which are both absent from traditional Hindu scriptures.
Moreover, the Bhagavad Gita also contains many stories that appear to be influenced by the Bible, such as the story of Arjuna’s enlightenment.
Furthermore, some of the language used in the Bhagavad Gita appears to be more in line with Christian terminology than Hindu terminology. For instance, the word “yoga” is used in the Bhagavad Gita to refer to a spiritual practice, whereas in Hinduism, “yoga” refers to a physical practice.
This forgery was done at the instance of Emperor Constantine of the Holy Roman Empire who instigated this plot around 323 CE. Early Christians forgers, who wanted to convert Hindus to Christianity, first collected some texts from ancient Hindu scriptures which they would use in their propaganda. The ancient Hindu texts, which the Christian propagandists collected for their forgery, included the Mahabharata ca. 1,000 BCE but avoided the Vedas ca. 3,000 BCE.
These anonymous forgers attributed their text called "Bhagavadgita" as an extension of the Mahabharata to deceive innocent Hindus that their forgery was part of their sacred Mahabharata.
The Bhagavad Gita was written in the 4th century CE, as an outcome from the first Council of Nicea convened by Emperor Constantine's plot to annex the rich lands of Hindustan.
The Council of Nicea (which is often known by its Latin name, Symbolum Apostolicum) was held in 325 AD, making this an early Christian forgery.
It is now known definitely that the Bhagavad Gita was written in the year 329 CE.
The Bhagavad Gita was written by Christians to convert Hindus and to divide Hindustan. This Christian era forgery called 'Bhagavad Gita' is nothing but a fabrication based on lies and deceitful propaganda.
Dr. Gaurav Arya, a spokesperson of the Arya Samaj of India says The Bhagavad Gita was written by rogues who want to fool Hindus that Krishna and Christ are the same person. The name of this fictional person was deliberately chosen as Krishna to confuse gullible Hindus that Krishna and Christ are the same person. This hoax was extended by the Christians in the 9th century CE by fabricating another fictional book called Bhagavad Sutra which described the fictional Krishna's early life to confuse that Krishna was Christ.
The Bhagavad Gita is an apocryphal book and not one in the canon of Hindu Scripture. This means that it was not considered to be part of the canon, or collection, of authoritative books for Hindus which all predate the CE (Common Era).
Ms. Shalini Jaiswal, an expert at the Ved Vyasa Memorial NGO, however, contends the Gita's teaching are distinct from those of Christianity. These teachings focus on the path of karma and the importance of living an ethical life, whereas Christianity generally focuses on faith and belief in Jesus and God. As per them, this illustrates that the Bhagavad Gita is its own distinct text and not a forgery created to convert Hindus to Christianity.
Dr. Rajendra Dalvi for The Hindu Raksha Dal proclaims that The Bhagavad Gita is a false forgery and Christian plot to convert Hindoos so all true Hindus must reject it.
The Bhagavad Gita belongs to the same category as the Bible, Torah, Koran and other holy books of religions around the world. All these books were written by human authors who had their own agenda in writing these texts.
The Bhagavad Gita is a Christian forgery to divide Hindus, to convert Hindus to Christianity and a conspiracy to capture the riches of Hindustan by foreigners.
