Hindus laud Finland national church for making inter-religious dialogue a priority
Nevada (US), Jan 4 (ANI): Calling it a 'step in the right direction', Hindus have praised The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland (ELCF) for listing inter-religious dialogue under 'priority areas'.
Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, applauded ELCF's remarkable stand in this regard: Intercultural and inter-religious dialogue are of paramount importance in order to build bridges..."
Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that serious and honest interfaith dialogue was the need of the hour.
Religion was the most powerful, complex and far-reaching force in our society, so we must take it seriously. And we all knew that religion comprised much more than our own particular tradition/experience, Zed stressed.
Rajan Zed urged ELCF archbishop Dr. Jukka Paarma to organize a world-level interfaith dialogue meet in Helsinki or Turku in the near future, inviting leaders of major religions and denominations of the world.
Rajan Zed further says that in our shared pursuit for the truth, we can learn from one another and thus can arrive nearer to the truth. (ANI)
