Fundamentalism ... it's not just for Baptists any more.

A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) activist has taken Human Resource 
Development Minister Arjun Singh to court for schoolbooks suggesting 
there is no scientific evidence that Hindu deities Ram and Krishna 

Ajit Kumar, a BJP worker from the Samastipur district, has filed a 
complaint in court against Singh and a few others, stating that new 
history books for Class 11, which say there is no scientific evidence 
of Ram and Krishna, have hurt the sentiments of Hindus.

The complaint was filed on Thursday in the court of the Hajipur chief 
judicial magistrate, who fixed August 2 to hear the case.

Then I think we'd see the beauty there and stand staring in awe
