The president of the Hindu Sena, Vishnu Gupta, said Trump was the only "saviour of mankind".
"The entire world is suffering due to Islamic terrorism. All these bomb blasts across the world are linked to Islamic terrorism. There is only one saviour of mankind and that is Donald Trump. We have done Yagya today and prayed to god that people of the US elect Trump as their Presdent," Gupta said.
