THE first ever gathering of Hindus to celebrate their contribution to the country will be held in Nadi in April.

And organisers of the event — the Vishva Hindu Parishad Fiji or World Hindu Council of Fiji — emphasised that the first Fiji National Hindu Conference was not a religious or philosophical meeting but rather, a community conference.

"This conference is not a religious or philosophical event, but a community conference," said president Jay Dayal.

"The theme is "the contribution of the Hindu community in strengthening and building Fiji" and it will cover economic, health, environmental, social and cultural aspects.

"Basically, the conference will provide a platform for all Hindu organisations, temples and like-minded groups to showcase their contributions to Fijian society in general and Hindu society in particular."

The conference will be held on Saturday April 12 and Sunday April 13 at the Tanoa International Hotel.
