Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, said that apartheid conditions faced by Roma in Europe were simply immoral and this apartheid needed to be strongly condemned by all European nations and religious leaders and should go. What was more baffling that even religious elite of Europe had not come out openly against the apartheid faced by Roma who were residents of Europe since 9th century CE, while the religions clearly told us to help the helpless, Zed noted.
Europe’s most persecuted and discriminated community, Roma reportedly regularly encountered social exclusion, racism, substandard education, hostility, joblessness, rampant illness, inadequate housing, lower life expectancy, unrest, living on desperate margins, stereotypes, mistrust, rights violations, discrimination, marginalization, appalling living conditions, prejudice, human rights abuse, etc., Zed pointed out.
