More than 5,000 Indian Americans and Hindus rallied in support of Donald Trump Saturday in Edison, NJ, reported

“We can’t have prosperity without security, and that is why we appreciate the great friend India has been to the United States in the fight against radical Islamic terrorism,” Trump said Saturday night.

“He speaks what he thinks,” Hemant Bhatt said. “He is going to work for India, and he believes in Hinduism. He is going to ban the Muslims from Pakistan. India is a victim of terrorism, and illegal immigration.”

Also on stage were a number of Bollywood performers including Prabhu Deva, Shriya Saran and Sophie Chaudhry

Outside a small group of protestors gathered. A news conference was also held by South Asians for Hillary, reported India New England.

“We don’t think it’s right for someone from out of the state to come here and raise political issues with our faith and say they speak for over 3.4 million Indian Americans across the country, even more Muslim Americans, and the South Asian communities as a whole.”

A recent poll just released by the National Asian American Survey found 71 percent of Indian Americans support Hillary Clinton versus seven percent for Trump.
