Hindu Prayer Room sought at Zurich Airport

Hindus are urging for a designated “Hindu Prayer Room” at Zurich Airport, Switzerland’s largest and one of the world’s leading airports.
Zurich Airport, which “regularly wins awards for its excellent services”, already has Christian and Muslim chapels and a mortuary.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that as considerable number of Hindu passengers used Zurich Airport; it would be nice if they had a quiet facility at the airport where they could pray/meditate/worship and perform religious services.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, urged Board Chairman Andreas G. Schmid and CEO Stephan Widrig to work in this direction as an issue of fairness and equality in customer service. He or other Hindu scholars would be glad to help, if asked, regarding the structure of “Hindu Prayer Room”.

Hindus would appreciate Zurich Airport if this “Hindu Prayer Room” had murtis (statues) of popular deities, copies of sacred scriptures, a traditional bell and recorded devotional music; Rajan Zed noted.
