Ahead of US presidential election, prayers for Kamala Harris in Tamil Nadu, for Donald Trump in Delhi

With few hours left for the US election results to come out, the supporters of Democratic Party vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris held prayers in her ancestral village Thulasendrapuram in Tamil Nadu while workers of the Hindu Sena offered special prayers in Delhi to ensure the re-election of US President Donald Trump. Harris’s grandfather PV Gopalan and his family migrated to Chennai nearly 90 years ago, where he retired as a high-ranking government officer.

A couple of years ago, the same Hindu Sena had celebrated Trump’s birthday by cutting a cake at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar. Now with Americans voting in what is being called a close election, Trump’s supporters in India are back to seeking divine help for his victory. The workers of the fringe Hindu Sena, which claims to have the support of 5 million Hindus, conducted a prayer at a temple in East Delhi on Tuesday.

A 30-minute special prayer with Hindu rituals was performed for the victory of Donald Trump in the US Presidential election. Ved Shastri, the priest who performed the ceremony, told reporters that Trump has been vocal against Islamic radicals and it is time for the world to support him in the US presidential elections.

The Hindu Sena also wished the Democratic Party vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris because of her Indian ancestry. The prayers had started at 12.30 in front of the pictures of Donald Trump. The Hindu Sena has also planned several other programs in support of Donald Trump in the upcoming days. It is confident that Trump will win.

The Hindu Sena said it wanted Trump to be re-elected as President of the United States in order to keep India’s main rivals Pakistan and China in check. Hindu Sena president Vishnu Gupta told the media that India could fight terrorism only if Trump is around and both China and Pakistan would stay controlled as long as he is the president.
