Nevada (US), June 13 (ANI): In a remarkable interfaith gesture, esteemed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed was honored with a siropa (robe of honor) on June 12 at Gurdwara Guru Nanak Darbar of Long Island in Hicksville (New York, USA).

 

Siropa was presented to Zed by Gurdwara leaders Dayal Singh Vohra, Santok Singh Bajaj, Balwant Singh Lungani, and Kulraj Singh Lungani. Speaking on the occasion, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, stressed that all religions should work together for a just and peaceful world. Dialogue would bring us mutual enrichment, he added.

Zed was honored with a siropa on March 19 evening in Amritsar (India) in the Golden Temple complex, which contains the holiest shrine and highest seat of Sikhism.

 

Rajan Zed has taken up interfaith, religion, Hindu, environment, Roma and other causes all over the world.

Sikhism is fifth largest religion in the world and Sikhs believe in one immortal Being; Ten Gurus, from Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh; the Guru Granth Sahib; the utterances and teachings of the ten Gurus; and baptism bequeathed by the tenth Guru. Personal contact with Sikhs usually impresses the outsider with energetic hospitality. Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal. (ANI)
