BRITAIN: The Coronation ceremony of King Charles is going to be held in London on 6th May and for the first time people of Indian origin representing Hindu and Sikh religions will be specially involved in this ceremony. In this coronation, an attempt is made to give a message of faith to all religions by involving people of all religions, which is a Christian religious ceremony.

The special thing is that the British government has appointed 90-year-old Lord Inderjit Singh to represent the Sikh community in this ceremony. According to media reports, members of the House of Lords from the four major religions will represent non-Christian religions at the main event. Narendra Babubhai Patel, a member of the House of Lords, will represent Hinduism and may present the ring to King Charles at the ceremony.

Inderjit Singh, 90, will represent Sikhism and may hand over the gloves to Charles during the coronation. Inderjit Singh told a newspaper that this shows that the king respects all religions. Singh said, as he (Raja) has said time and again that he is the protector of Christianity, but has full respect for all other religions.

The 56-year-old Lord Kamal, a London-born Muslim, is expected to hand over a bracelet to the King. Meanwhile, 64-year-old Baroness Gillian Meron will represent Judaism and is expected to wear the coronation robes. The royal regalia is expected to be a prominent feature at a religious ceremony at Westminster Abbey next month and the items are expected to be handed over to the Archbishop of Canterbury, who will preside over the ceremony to present them to King Charles.

Also, non-Christian clergy are likely to be invited to be a part of the coronation ceremony. However, Buckingham Palace has yet to confirm details of the 74-year-old Charles's coronation ceremony. A spokesman for Lambeth Palace, the office of the Archbishop of Canterbury, said: "The coronation ceremony will be published in due course and we look forward to the day when we are able to share more details."
