Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, called thus giving representation to country’s Hindus and Sikhs “a step in the right direction”.
Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, urged Hindus and Sikh nationals of Afghanistan to wholeheartedly work for the development of Afghanistan. Zed urged Karzai to seriously listen to other issues of minority Hindu and Sikh communities of Afghanistan and work on speedy resolution of those.
