Rajan Zed, acclaimed Hindu statesman; and Rabbi Jonathan B. Freirich, prominent Jewish leader in Nevada and California in USA; in a joint statement, said that since Australian Parliament represented every Australian irrespective of religion/denomination, it was quite befitting in this increasingly diverse nation to do a rotation of prayers representing major religions and aboriginal spirituality.

Zed and Freirich said that religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Baha’ism, Jainism, Confucianism, Taoism, Shintoism, Zoroastrianism, aboriginal spirituality, etc., should be invited in rotation to recite short opening prayers in Australia Senate and House of Representatives.
