Hindus laud Overland Park Council for permitting elephant for wedding festivities
Hindus have thanked Kansas's Overland Park City Council for unanimously approving the permit in its August 18 meeting to allow an elephant for wedding festivities on September six.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, commended the Overland Park City Council for respecting the age old Hindu traditions by granting this permit. Zed urged all city councils and county boards/commissions of USA to allow such usage.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that it was tradition in Hindu weddings for the bridegroom to travel to wedding venue riding on a horse or elephant in a procession accompanied by family and friends.

Rajan Zed further said that it was very comforting to know that Hindu traditions received a warm welcome in Kansas.
