Hindus have urged for a permanent and dedicated Prayer Room at University of Adelaide (UoA), which claims to be a “truly global institution”.
 
The University of Adelaide 
 
UoA already has a Chapel (with altar and font) and Islamic prayer rooms; besides Anglican, Baptist and Lutheran chaplains. UoA is not shy in admitting: “While our current chaplaincy team are all representatives of Christian traditions, our university community is very diverse.”
 
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA), said that UoA should respond to the requirements of Hindu students to provide designated prayer-meditation hall for rituals, quiet reflection, festivals and spiritual exercise; which would help in their personal growth.
