The Shree Sanatan Dharam Pratinidhi Sabha supports the new draft constitution.
Its national president, Dewan Chand Maharaj, yesterday told the Fiji Sun they were happy with the draft constitution.
“We had made a submission which has been included in the draft constitution and we are happy with that.”
Mr Maharaj said a major highlight of the draft constitution was that Fiji was to be a secular state.
“The freedom to practice one’s own faith will help rid the nation of racial discrimination. It may encourage others to understand the different faiths practiced in Fiji,” he said.
The draft constitution is currently out for public viewing.
Meanwhile, an affiliated body of the Sabha, the Brahmin Sabha of Fiji, yesterday had their annual general meeting.
Their president, Rajeshwar Sharma, said a book soon to be released would clearly define the rules and rites of the Sanatan religion.
“One of the major concerns raised in the meeting was the rules and the rites and we will be releasing a book soon that will clearly define this.”
