MOSCOW, March 21 � A Russian court today dismissed a petition seeking a ban on a translated version of Bhagavad Gita for being �extremist�, bringing cheers to followers across the world, months after the issue threatened to strain Moscow�s strategic ties with India, reports PTI.

�The court in the Siberian city of Tomsk has dismissed the plea,� Sadhu Priya Das of Moscow ISKCON told PTI soon after the verdict was announced.

The verdict also comes just days before Russian President Dmitry Medvedev�s visit to India next week for the BRICS Summit.

State prosecutors in the Siberian city of Tomsk had filed an appeal against a lower court�s dismissal of their original plea seeking a ban on �Bhagavad Gita As It Is�, written by AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).
