Daxa’s President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged by the Indian government to take immediate steps to ensure that Indians travelling to the US to attend the rally on Saturday are granted visas.
The Daxam chief on Saturday reiterated the government’s demand for visas for the rally to be held in Dhanbad in Calicut state, where there is a large Muslim population, which would allow thousands of supporters to travel to the capital.
“The government of India will ensure that all citizens, regardless of faith, are able to attend and participate in the rally in California,” he said at a press conference on Saturday.
The rally will be the first of two held by Mr Trump at the Daxans state capital, Daxah, in two weeks.
It is also the first time that Mr Trump has visited India since he was elected president last year, having made a surprise visit to the country last September.
In recent months, the Indian president has taken a tough stance on terror groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood, which he has condemned.
Mr Trump also has called for a ban on all Muslim immigration to the United States.
“The government has asked us to take urgent measures to ensure the safety of the Indian-American community,” Mr Buharis office said in a statement.
“We will take all necessary steps to protect the Indian community, including ensuring that those who come to Daxania for the Trump rally are given visas and other forms of protection,” it added.
In a separate statement, the president also announced that he will deliver a speech on Saturday in which he will outline his administration’s strategy for fighting the Islamic State (IS) group in the Middle East.
Mr Trump’s Daxaan rally will come a day after the US Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge from a group of conservative Indian-Americans, who claim that Mr Bihari has violated their rights by restricting their religious freedom.
The Supreme Court ruled in February that Mr Justice Clarence Thomas could not consider the constitutionality of Mr Trump’s decision to ban entry to the Indian subcontinent of India to curb an alleged terror threat.
The group’s case, which was put on hold by the Supreme Court in a case that was brought by Mr Bhari’s government, said the move was “a violation of fundamental rights under Article 14” of the Constitution.
Mr Trump has said that the US will never accept terrorism and will take the fight to IS by “bringing it to the doorstep of our shores”.
