Nevada (US), May 31 (ANI): Hindu statesman Rajan Zed and Seventh-day Adventists are thinking to work together on issues of common interest.

Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, and who had a dialogue with some of the leaders of Seventh-day Adventist Church at their world headquarters in Silver Spring (Maryland, USA) on May 25, says that they are thinking to have further dialogue and might cooperate on common causes.
