Each day of session in the General Assembly starts off with a prayer from a minister or chaplain. For the first time, a Hindu will be sharing a recitation from his religion.
Rajan Zed is the President of the Universal Society of Hinduism. He has prayed before government councils and groups all over the country.
When Zed appeared as a guest chaplain in the U.S. Senate, he was met by protest from a small group of Christian extremists.
