Hindus urge end to Gypsies maltreatment
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has warmly congratulated French President-elect Francois Hollande on his election victory.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, hoped that Hollande would now successfully work for ending Roma (Gypsies) maltreatment in France.
Europe’s most persecuted and discriminated community, Roma were reportedly facing apartheid conditions in Europe. 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.
