It is probably because of ignorance and arrogance. 
Sometimes TRADITION becomes more important than the TRUTH.
Bhagavadgita is a highly revered scripture. 
What other shaastrams do one really need?
If some time is spent in reading and understanding this great book 
with an open mind (not with the constraints inposed by any one particular 
sect)-
things would be much better.
