Washington, August 19
In an indication of the rising political prominence of Hindus in America, the Trump and Biden campaigns are wooing this small spiritual minority group like by no means earlier than.
Hinduism is the fourth largest religion within the US, representing roughly one per cent of the US inhabitants in 2016.
While the Trump marketing campaign guarantees that re-electing President Donald Trump will “reduce obstacles to religious freedoms” for Hindus in America, the rival Biden marketing campaign on Tuesday mentioned former vice-president Joe Biden has made outreach to the Hindu religion group a precedence.
For the primary time in an American presidential election, the Trump marketing campaign on August 14 introduced the formation of the “Hindu Voices for Trump.” Two days later, outstanding Hindu chief Neelima Gonuguntla participated in an interfaith service to kick off the Democratic National Convention, which the Biden marketing campaign mentioned was one other signal of the rising political prominence of Hindus in America. — PTI
