The Supreme Court today dismissed a plea seeking framing of a national yoga policy and making the practice compulsory for students of classes 1-8 across the country.

A bench headed by Justice M B Lokur dismissed the plea and said it is for the government to take a decision on such issue.

“We are nobody to say what is to be taught in schools. It is none of our business. How can we direct that ” the bench said

The apex court said it was not possible for it to grant the relief as sought by petitioners – Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, a lawyer and Delhi BJP spokesperson and J C Seth.

“What is to be taught in schools is not a fundamental right,” it said.
