Hindu group prays for Trump’s win in US polls

Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

NEW DELHI—Around a dozen ac­tivists of a right-wing In­dian group Hindu Sena per­formed rit­u­als in New Delhi on Wed­nes­day and prayed for vic­tory of US pres­i­den­tial hope­ful Don­ald Trump. The Hindu Sena ac­tivists lit a ritual fire and per­formed puja on a blan­ket spread out in a New Delhi protest park. “The whole world is scream­ing against Is­lamic ter­ror­ism, and even In­dia is not safe from it,” Vishnu Gupta, founder of the Hindu Sena, claimed. They placed several stat­ues de­pict­ing Hindu gods in­clud­ing Shiva and Hanu­man along with pho­tos of Trump. They urged In­dian-ori­gin US cit­i­zens to vote for Trump in the forth­com­ing US elec­tions. Trump’s call for tem­po­rary ban on Mus­lims from en­ter­ing the United States ap­pears to have earned him some sup­port­ers in In­dia.— AP
