Here’s an interesting bit of news from Dnaindia.com: it turns out that Hindus in America strongly support net neutrality. Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada last week, said that it is important to maintain a level playing field when it comes to the internet.
Zed, who is the president of Universal Society of Hinduism, said in his remarks last week that "every citizen of the world should have access to high speed internet, and corporate greed should not be allowed to govern it."
"Access to the internet should be a fundamental right as it played a significant role in everyday life," he added.
Zed also applauded Finland for making "broadband a legal right" for its citizens and for promising speeds of up to 100Mbps connection by 2015.
Finally, Zed urged other religious leaders including Pope Benedict XVI, to "wholeheartedly support the causes of net neutrality and internet access" as a "fundamental right."
