Hindus have urged Brazil to look deeply into the reported discrimination against practitioners of Afro-Brazilian religions like Candomblé, Umbanda, etc., and come up with a plan to eradicate it. 

Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that as Article five of Brazil constitution provided for freedom of religion, and discrimination based on religion was prohibited in Brazil law, Brazil should take care of its minority practitioners of Afro-Brazilian religions.
