On April 17, 2005 the Press Trust of India reported, "Nepal's King Gyanendra today inaugurated the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the World Hindu Federation (WHF), the umbrella organisation of Hindus all over the world. The event coincided with the Hindu Festival Ram Navami. Representatives of Buddhist, Jain and Sikh religion known as Omkar Parivar performed religious prayers at the function here which began with the recitation of Vedic hymns by priests. Terrorism and violence have become the feature of today's world as people have ignored religious values and norms, therefore, it is the duty of the Hindus all over the world to play an active role in preserving and promoting spiritual and religious values of life, WHF President and King Gyanendra' honorary aide Bharat Keshar Singh, said."
