Washington, Mar 10 (ANI): One of the significant topics in a new documentary made in the US would be the historic first Hindu prayer of the United States Senate of last July.
The documentary, “ARTICLE VI: Faith* Politics* America” is scheduled to be to hit theatres in August.

The scene when Rajan Zed, prominent Hindu chaplain, who read this first prayer in the 218 years history of the Senate, was protested, appears prominently in the documentary.
This documentary also shows the interviews of protesters and others about their reactions to Hindu prayer in the Senate, besides Zed.

Directed by Bryan D. Hall and Jack Donaldson under Living Biography Media banner, the documentary offers an intense discussion of the role of faith in politics and examination of the religious freedom and intolerance in America. (ANI)
