Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, extending warmest wishes to Mandela on the occasion, said that he set a milestone for the world with his efforts in pluralism, common ground, equality, color-blindness and coexistence.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, urged Hindus worldwide that besides prayers, they should also do some community service locally as a tribute to Mandela.

Mandela, who symbolized the victory of the human spirit, had made huge contributions towards creation of just society and pursuance of social justice, Rajan Zed added.
