Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, appealed to the Hindu community to hold special prayer sessions in Hindu temples all over USA.

Rajan Zed, expressing deep sympathies, noted: Hearts and thoughts of Hindu community of USA go to the victims’ families and loved ones, injured, rescuers and relief workers. May God grant them strength, courage, comfort, and assistance. It was a highly tragic and difficult time for them, Zed added.

Zed further said that he was full of sorrow for this tragedy and urged other religious leaders of USA to join him in prayers. It was a heartbreaking incident, Zed stated.
