US university establishes endowed chair in Hindu and Jain Studies !

A developed country like America establishes a chair to study Hindu Dharma. Sadly, it is noticed that when the Indian government decides to include Bhagavad-Gita in the school syllabus, the so-called secularists, rationalists, and progressive people of our country protest the Government’s decision !

Washington – California State University has announced the setting up of an endowed chair in Hindu and Jain Studies, which will be an integral part of its religious studies program. 24 Indian-Americans have contributed to this. A professor who holds expertise in both Hinduism and Jainism will be appointed as an interim chair.
