Parsis: The Zoroastrians of India Pakistan and The World

Youths should respect Parsi priests: Chief Justice of India Sam H Kapadia

Chief Justice of India S H Kapadia exhorted Parsi youths to offer more respect to the high priests of the community, which is shrinking in numbers with time.

Talking to Parsi Panchayat members at a function in the city, the CJI said that he is a firm believer of god and it pays to be religious.

Justice Kapadia advised the young Parsis: "You must respect your high priests. The way you do not question the wisdom of your doctor and lawyer, though you get a second opinion, you have to go to Dastoorjis (Parsi spiritual leaders) in order to seek advise in religious matters."

Parsi Panchayat president K J Shethna presided over the function where various groups offered gifts to the CJI, which included the book on history of the city prepared by Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation and The Times of India .
