Hindu group in US endorses Obama
Washington: A US-based Hindu organisation has endorsed President Barack Obama in his re-election bid in this week`s polls, alleging that the Republican Party of Mitt Romney is represented by India "hate mongers".
"United Hindu Front endorses Barack Obama for the President of US," the organisation said in a statement and asked Hindus Americans to vote for him and the Democratic Party candidates for the November 6 elections.
"As a Hindu and as an Indian, will you support the party represented by India hate mongers like Dan Burton or the party which has leaders championing our Hindu cause? It was not by accident when Romney said that Pakistan is technically an ally and that he will rebuild relationship with Pakistan.
"Romney is clueless about this volatile region and it will, indeed, be a matter of shame for any Hindu American to vote for Mitt Romney," the United Hindu Front said in a statement.
"It was not a coincidence that Osama could not have been captured or killed by any Republican President, as they would have sought Pak permission and informed them before entering their territory. Bush or the new clueless Republican Candidate Romney has stated such positions.
"Flip-Flopper Romney wants to rebuild relations with Pakistan. There could be some rich Hindus who may be inclined to support Romney in the hope that they may get Tax Breaks, but we hope that National interests will overrule such selfish interests," it said.
United Hindu Front said no one can deny great contributions and support to Hindu and Indian interests by Democrats like Congressman Frank Pallone and Senator Sherrod Brown who have been championing the Human Rights cause of Hindus for past several years.
