16 Sep :Applauding the opening of first state-funded Hindu school in United Kingdom, acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has urged the Hindu community to open more Hindu schools outside India.
In a statement in Nevada (USA) today, Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, says that with the economically strong Hindu community spread throughout the world, funding should not be a problem to open such schools. These will help Hindu children to strengthen their spiritual and moral roots and enlighten interested non-Hindus about the concepts and philosophy of the oldest and third largest religion of the world. With a stronger commitment of Hindu community, we would not even need state help, he adds.
Such schools will go a long way in nurturing Hindu virtues among our children and give them a spiritual identity. Moreover, it will help counter the misinformation about Hinduism prevalent in the West and promote Sanskrit. Besides Hindus, we should open the doors of such schools for interested students of all faith traditions, Rajan Zed adds.
