Hindus want end to religious preferences in admission to schools in Ireland.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that religion should not play any role in admissions to Irish schools.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, indicated that religious discrimination in tax funded schools was quite unfair and should be unacceptable in 21st century Ireland.
Rajan Zed noted that practice of religious majority controlling the school doors and schools indulging in kind of state-sanctioned indoctrination was simply wrong and should end.
Zed urged Council of Europe to seriously look into the educational system of Ireland and make it fair for minority religions and non-believers.
