Friday, July 11, 2014

THE Arya community in Fiji is mourning the passing of former Arya Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji national president Surendra Prasad.

Sabha media officer Kamlesh Arya said the former lawyer and magistrate was one of the most influential people in the organisation.

"He passed away in Sydney on July 6," he said.

"Mr Prasad was a prominent member of the Arya Samaj Movement in Fiji and was the national president from 1980 to 1982 and then from 1987 to 1995.

"He was also a trustee of the sabha for several years."

According to Mr Arya, the Saru, Lautoka, native was an integral part of Gurukul Arya Samaj and the committee responsible for the development of the Pandit Vishnu Deo Memorial College.

"For his outstanding service to Arya Samaj in and out of Fiji, Mr Prasad was bestowed the Honour of 'Arya Ratna' in 1997 by Arya Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji."
