In October, they burnt posters of Hillary Clinton, former US Secretary of State and Donald Trump’s opponent, for “defaming the savior of humanity”. A day before Trump was sworn in as the 45th American President, the outfit even held their own ‘Raj Tilak’ (Coronation) ceremony for him.
Donald Trump 71st birthday: The US President Donald Trump may be ringing in his 71st birthday amid a US Senate investigation into possible collusion with Russia during the 2016 election, but thousands of miles away, a group he has probably never heard of organized a birthday bash for the billionaire President. Hindu Sena, a radical fringe Hindu outfit, celebrated Donald Trump’s birthday, complete with a birthday cake, at New Delhi’s Jantar Mantar on Wednesday.
A small tent was erected at the designated protest site near Jantar Mantar and decorated with saffron and blue balloons. At 1 pm, Vishnu Gupta, leader of the Hindu Sena, got out of his car with a cake weighing 7.1 kg, to mark their “Messiah’s” 71st birthday. A group of men, allowing allegiance to Trump, scurried to put up pictures of the 45th US President, including one of baby Trump, on the tent wall. In addition to a handful of Hindu Sena workers and a few media persons, nobody really turned up for Gupta’s party.
This is not the first time Hindu Sena has gathered at Jantar Mantar to show solidarity with Trump, considered a polarizing figure in American politics. In May last year, when Trump was still just a candidate, the outfit held a Havan to pray for his victory in the elections.
