Radical Hindu nationalists celebrate Donald Trump’s 70th birthday [+1]
Donald Trump was thrown an unlikely 70th birthday party in Delhi on Tuesday by a small group of radical Hindu nationalists who are apparently enamoured of his anti-Muslim rhetoric.
Members of the public and media had been invited to come “celebrate the birthday of the saviour of humanity” by the Hindu Sena, a fringe far-Right political group which is known for its headline-grabbing antics.
Around 20 members of the group cut an oversized three-tiered birthday cake bearing the words “Happy Birthday Donald Trump” at the celebration held in a Delhi park.
“We are celebrating his special day, despite the recent tragedy in Orlando because, he is taking a stand against Islamic terror and that is very important to India, as we have been plagued from this kind of terrorism,” Vishnu Gupta, the group’s president, told the ANI news agency.
