"Most of HSC’s work is accomplished through a volunteer base of students and young professionals from various walks of life, along with support from the community, Mr Trivedi further said, adding that "HSC has been open to all those who want to learn about Hindu Dharma, work towards the preservation of Hindu heritage and address issues impacting Hindus globally."
