Hindus urge Russian Orthodox Church to promote interfaith talk

Nevada (USA), Sat, 14 Feb 2009 NI Wire

Congratulating Metropolitan Kirill on his election as the 16th Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church, Hindus hope that he would promote interfaith dialogue in the world.


Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, lauded declaration of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, after his enthronement, “…dialogue facilitates a greater understanding among people of different views and convictions, including their religious beliefs, and promotes the consolidation of peace and accord in our societies and states.”

Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out, “Religion is a complex component of human life. Dialogue helps us to see interconnections and interdependencies between religions and even similarities in doctrines. Religions should at least work together on common religious concerns like peace-making and peace-keeping, social and economic development, freedom and human rights.”

More than one thousand years old Russian Orthodox Church, second largest Christian denomination, has about 135 million followers, over 29, 000 parishes, about 770 monasteries, and over 11,000 Sunday schools.
