PRLog - Nov. 23, 2012 - In a remarkable interfaith gesture, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed visited Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI) in New Delhi on November 23.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, was welcomed by Fr. Jose Vattakuzhy, Director of its Labour Commission, and both had dialogue on various topics of common interest including economic and social development, freedom and human-rights, etc.

Rajan Zed thanked Fr. Vattakuzhy for the warm welcome he received.

Objectives of CBCI, constituted in 1944, are to facilitate coordinated study and discussion of questions affecting the Church, and adoption of a common policy and effective action in all matters concerning the interests of the Catholic Church in India. Cardinal Oswald Gracias is the President.

Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal.

Roman Catholics, headed by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI and headquartered in Vatican City, are the largest single denomination of Christianity with about 1.2 billion followers.
