Indians abroad begin to eat beef since they are not being taught cultural and traditional values: Giriraj Singh

BEGUSARAI (BIHAR): The Union minister said Thursday that Indian children go abroad and most of them start eating beef because they are not being taught about our 'culture' and 'traditional values'.

Bhagavad Gita should be taught in schools, we send our children to missionary schools, they go through IIT, they become engineers, they go abroad and most of them start eating beef. Why? Because we don't teach them about our culture and traditional values. Later, parents complain that their children are not taking care of them, Singh said while speaking at the 'Shrimad Bhagwat Katha Gyapan' event here Wednesday.

The Union minister further supported the need to implement Gita teaching in schools.

Therefore, schools must teach lessons from the verse (Shlok) of the Gita. In a survey of up to 100 houses, we have found that Hanuman Chalisa was found in only 15 homes and the books of Gita and Ramayana were only found in three houses. So we can't blame the kids, he added.

Speaking to reporters after the event, Singh added that India will only survive if its culture is saved.
