Mushariff started learning the holy Hindu scripture as part of memory retention training, and now she and her parents are proud that she has imbibed the best tenets of another religion.
The girl used memory retention technique taught by her Abacus and Vedic Mathematics teacher Rohini Menon. She started learning Bhagavad Gita when she was in Class VI and has so far memorised 500 Sanskrit sholkas,” said Menon.
"I wanted to do something different with this short course," Musharraf said. For that I chose the Bhagavad Gita. My parents also allowed me to read the Bhagavad Gita. So that I can know every religion. The Quran, the Gita, the Bible convey the same message. Humanity is the greatest religion".

Proud of Mushariff’s achievement, her mother Zeenat Khan said, “Yes, we are Muslims. But we want to bring up our daughter in a manner that she grows up to be a noble human being ingrained with the best tenets of every religion.”
