FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Hindu group based in Nevada is asking the University of North Dakota to reconsider plans to relocate the school’s meditation room.

Rajan Zed, a spokesman for the Universal Society of Hinduism, says the university’s plan for the group to share space with several other groups creates problems. Zed says the new space could discourage students from using the center on a walk-in basis.

The group’s current meditation room has been part of the Grand Forks school’s International Center for about two decades. That building is one of eight on campus that is set to be demolished. The new space will be in the basement of a residence hall.

University spokesman Peter Johnson says the complaints are unfounded. He says the only change to the room is the location.
