In view of the reported Madison (Alabama) incident in which a Hindu grandfather taking a walk in broad daylight was recently roughed-up by the police resulting in his partial paralysis, Hindus have stressed the need of cultural competency training to first responders in Alabama and nationwide.
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that in view of increasing diversity of the country, first responders should be adequately trained in cultural appropriateness so that they understood and interpreted more effectively the actions-attitudes-behaviors of linguistically and culturally diverse people.
Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that many preventable tragedies could be avoided if we as Americans attempted to understand and interpret each other better. Despite our diverse backgrounds, we needed to reduce the communication and cultural barriers amongst us, Zed added.
