July 19, 2016: CLEVELAND, USA:

Chicago-based wealthy industrialist and Founder of Republican Hindu Coalition Shalabh “Shalli” Kumar has emerged as a mega-donor to Donald Trump campaign. Last week, he flew directly from India and met Trump at a mansion in Hamptons.

After meeting the Republican Presidential nominee, Kumar said that he was greatly impressed with Mr. Trump and particularly his tough stand on Pakistan, a country notoriously prominent as a major hub for Islamic terrorism.

 Soon after Kumar donated USD 449, 400 to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign,  the maximum amount permissible by an individual donor. Not only that, Kumar announced that his wife will donate the equal amount, thus raising the total to 898,000- called “Double Max’ in fundraising circle. This puts Kumar as one of the biggest financial patrons to the Republican nominee.

Several months ago, Mr. Kumar had  founded the Republican Hindu Coalition.

Later Kumar hosted a breakfast reception for Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the US House of Representatives and a close aide of Trump.

Shalabh Kumar believes that this is just the beginning. He said: “This is just the beginning. This is the seed money.” Kumar plans to donate $2 Millions to Trump’s campaign from his personal kitty.

“That’s just a start. That’s the seed money,” Kumar said.

Kumar applauded Trump for his policies on Pakistan and his views on Muslim profiling. During their meeting, Kumar was especially won over by Trump’s tough words for Pakistan, India’s neighbor and nemesis; and the businessman praised Trump’s views on Muslim profiling.

“The way the Muslim religion is being practiced today — it’s not the religion but the way it is being practiced today — there’s something wrong,” Kumar observed.

“The policy setting is that we need to have a lot of scrutiny. I totally agree with [former Speaker] Newt Gingrich [R-Ga.]: Mosques should be monitored completely, vetting should be taking place. … I am totally for profiling. If you need to profile, what is the fuss?

“He has to do whatever [it takes] and he is the strongest that has come about in the last 45 years. … On national defense, he will be stronger than Reagan,” Kumar added.

According to a news published in US-based The Hill, Trump told Kumar in their meeting that Pakistan cannot be trusted as a U.S. ally, and he talked about how Osama bin Laden was housed on Pakistani soil when he was found and killed by U.S. forces.

Trump impressed Kumar further by telling him he wanted to strengthen the U.S.-India relationship and improve trade between the countries to counteract the rise of China.

“He has to do whatever [it takes] and he is the strongest that has come about in the last 45 years. On national defence, he will be stronger than Reagan (former president Ronald Wilson Reagan),” Kumar said.

Kumar owns AVG Advanced Technologies that manufactures electronic products. He thinks that the 21 century belongs to India and USA.

Geert Wilders – a prominent Dutch Parliamentarian and a right wing activist had all the praise for Shalabh Kumar.

  • Donald Trump threatens to stop all USA’s aid to Pakistan on this  New Year.
  • Trump alleged that Pakistan misuses the funds and shelter terrorists.
  • Not only Trump, but Pakistan has been accused of the same by India and Afghanistan too.

President Donald Trump began the New Year on Monday with a blistering attack on Pakistan, saying it will get no more US aid as it was giving “safe haven to terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan”.

“The US has foolishly given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools,” Trump tweeted in his strongest denunciation of Islamabad.

“They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” he added.

There was no immediate official reaction in Islamabad.

Trump’s announcement follows an increasingly tense back-and-forth between Washington and Islamabad after the US President unveiled his administration’s National Security Strategy.

He had then reminded Pakistan about its obligation towards helping the US because it got “massive payments” from Washington every year.

“We have made it clear to Pakistan that while we desire continued partnership, we must see decisive action against terrorist groups operating on their territory,” Trump had said. “They have to help.”

Pakistan is also accused by Afghanistan and India of harbouring terrorists ranged against the two countries. Islamabad routinely denies such charges. IANS
