Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has given a call to the leaders of various religions and denominations to put up a joint fight against the reportedly staggering amount of infidelity in the world.
Recent exposure of cheating website “Ashley Madison”, whose tagline is “Life is short. Have an affair” and which had reportedly over 37 million members, has highlighted the gravity of the issue. Moreover, there could be other adulterers also out there who were not “Ashley Madison” members.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement in Nevada today, said that as all major religions strongly condemned adultery, this was a good cause to show religious unity in fight against the evil of adultery, which was the major cause of divorces resulting in break-up of families.
Roman Catholics being the single largest religious group in the world under one leader, Pope Francis should lead the effort, involving other Christian denominations, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Jews, Confucians, Taoists, Baha’is, Jains, Shintoists, Zoroastrians, etc.; Rajan Zed suggested.
Zed offered Hindu help for the cause. Religions needed to act before infidelity became a norm, Zed added.
