Muslim girl wins Bhagvad Gita contest

12-yr muslim girl, Maryam Siddiqui, has won Bhagvad Gita contest in Mumbai. This girl is studying in VI class. Maryam has won first position among over 3,000 participants at the ‘Gita Champions League’ contest (a written competition), organized by International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon) in January.

The 100 mark multiple choice question based test, evaluates children on their knowledge of the Gita. Maryam said, “I have always been inquisitive about religions and I often read up on them during my free time. So when my teacher told me about this contest I thought it would be a good chance to understand what the book is about. My parents too supported my idea of participating in the contest.”

Maryam Siddiqui has received the prize on March 15, 2015.

A student of Cosmopolitan High School, Mira Road, Maryam studied material that was provided by Iskcon for almost a month before giving the test in English. She said, “I read through the material and tried to understand what the Gita tries to tell us. The more I read about different religions, the more I have realized that humanity is the most important religion that we must follow.”

This tells us the story of India, United India, Secular India, Progressive India, the united yet diversified India.

    nye “Bharat nirman” ka ye achha step hai jo meri is muslim sister ne karke dikhaya.hame age jane ke liye “JATIWAD ,DHARMWAD”,ko chhodkar “RASHTRAWAD” ki bhawana KO apane andar lani hogi tabhi naye BHARAT ka NIRMAN hoga.
    sabhi sirf is liye chauke hai ki wo ek MUSLIM ldki hai aur usne ek hindu contest me participat kar contest ko jeet liya hai.
