Hindus have exhorted United Kingdom (UK) to let all retired Gurkha servicemen stay in the country.
Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that it was simply immoral for UK to deny these former servicemen to settle in UK, who had been sacrificing for Britain for the last two centuries and served the country with courage and loyalty..
Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, said that UK must show appreciation to Gurkhas who risked their lives for UK, fighting some of the fiercest battles world over and reportedly receiving 13 Victoria Crosses.
Historian Tony Gould reportedly said about them: “They are tough, they are brave, they are durable…”
