Hindus want launching of “comparative religion” subject in American schools

Hindus are asking for introduction of “comparative religion” subject in American high schools, teaching basics of major world religions, including the viewpoint of non-believers.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that it appeared that we as Americans should do a better job in teaching religion to our children, in view of the new survey released by Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life which reportedly found that many respondents could not correctly give the most basic tenets of their own faiths.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, argued that opening-up the American children to major world religions and non-believers’ viewpoint would make them well-nurtured, well-balanced, and enlightened citizens of tomorrow. It also made a good business sense to know the beliefs of “others” in a global community. Moreover, students should have knowledge of the entire society to become full participants in the society.
