Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that religion was a complex component of human life and dialogue helped us to see interconnections and interdependencies between religions and even similarities in doctrines. Religions should at least work together on common religious concerns like peace-making and peace-keeping, social and economic development, freedom and human rights, Zed added.
Zed commended carrying of one of the two enthronements first time in Church history by a woman at the ceremony and urged the Church to introduce women bishops. Women could disseminate God’s message as skillfully as men and deserved equal and full participation and access in religion, Zed argued. They would pray for Welby on his taking new duties, Zed said.
