‘Handbook on Hindu Patients’ Published by Queensland Government

'Health Care Providers' Handbook on Hindu Patients' to serve as a "quick-reference tool for health workers to use when caring for Hindu patients" is offered by Queensland government in Australia.

It covers a range of topics including "prayer and meditation, astrological beliefs, karma, fasting, end of life issues, maternity care, and food requirements."


Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has applauded Queensland government for this clinical support resource, saying that "it is a step in the right direction". Knowing the beliefs and practices of Hindus would help the providers deliver better healthcare.

Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, urged other governments around the world also to come up with such handbooks so that healthcare providers understand the Hindu patients better and be more sensitive to their feelings and requirements. If governments need any help in creating such handbooks, he or other Hindu scholars would gladly assist.
