American Hindu religious leader Rajan Zed has commended National Assembly of Pakistan for reportedly adopting a resolution that the Government should take steps to declare Holi, Diwali and Easter as closed holidays for minorities. Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, also praised Pakistan’s Sindh Government for reportedly declaring public holiday for Holi for the first time throughout the Sindh Province for all offices, autonomous, semi-autonomous bodies, corporations and local councils under the administrative control of Sindh Government except essential services.
Rajan Zed described these moves as steps in the positive direction.
Zed points out that despite theological differences; religions teach us love, sharing, respect, fairness, morality, ethics, forgiveness, compassion, tolerance, humility, etc. Dialogue helps us overcome prejudices, brings us closer and results in mutual enrichment, Zed added.
