Nevada, US: There is a ‘Hindu Club’ in Argentina and interestingly none of its associates is a Hindu.

Founded in 1919 and located in Argentina’s capital and largest city Buenos Aires, it is a rugby union club and besides rugby for which it is famous for and is a powerhouse, it also reportedly organizes other sports like golf, tennis, hockey and soccer.

Renowned players associated with it include Gonzalo Quesada, Nicolas Fernandez Miranda, Lucas Ostiglia, Hernan Senillosa, etc. Santiago Amaya is the president. It has won various national and provincial titles.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) on Sunday, urged Hindu Club to explore the rich philosophical thought, which Hinduism offered.

If the Club needed any assistance in Hinduism study, he or other Hindu scholars would gladly help, Zed, who is the President of Universal Society of Hinduism, added.

Hinduism is the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal. (ANI)
