Hindus seek equality in UK marriage law

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON - Jul 30, 2017 - Hindus are seeking equality for minority religions/denominations in United Kingdom (UK) marriage law.

GOV.UK website, under “Religious ceremonies” in “Marriages and civil partnerships in the UK”, states: “You don’t usually need to give notice with the register office if you’re getting married in an Anglican church…”

In “Jewish and Quaker marriages” and “Non-Anglican Christian marriages and all other religions”: “You need to give notice with the register office at least 28 days before the ceremony”.

Religious statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, asked: Should not all Britons be treated equally before the law irrespective of their religions/denominations?

Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that it was 21st century now where UK was a diverse society comprising of various faith traditions.  UK marriage regulations, seemed to be out of step with the times, needed a serious overhaul treating all religions/denominations at equal level.
