Hindus have the highest retention rate as compared to any other major religious group in USA, per an analysis posted by Pew Research Center (PRC), “a nonpartisan fact tank” headquartered in Washington DC, on June 24.
“…four-in-five Americans raised as Hindus continue to identify as Hindus as adults (80%); no other major religious group has a higher retention rate…”, it says. Some other retention rates are: Muslims 77%, Jews 75%, Catholics 59%, Buddhists 39%, Jehovah’s Witnesses 34%.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, congratulating the Hindu community on retention rate and various other achievements, urged them to continue with the traditional values of hard work, higher morals, stress on education, sanctity of marriage, etc., amidst so many distractions.
Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, advised Hindus to focus on inner search, stay pure, explore the vast wisdom of scriptures, make spirituality more attractive to youth and children, stay away from the greed, and always keep God in the life.
