Washington: ‘How can a Hindu be the President of the United States?’ Vivek Ramasamy’s answer to the question has gone viral.
With the US presidential election to be held on November 5 next year, the election of the opposition Republican Party’s presidential candidate is intensifying. Indian-origin Vivek Ramasamy, one of the Republican Party’s presidential candidates, participated in an American television program and answered many questions. Then, “The founders of America had a different religion. Your religion is different. So, what’s your response to people who say, ‘You can’t be the president of the United States?’” The question was posed.
Vivek Ramasamy replied, “I am a Hindu. I will not fake my identity. Hinduism and Christianity have similar values. Based on my religious faith, it is my understanding that every person is here for a reason and it is our moral duty to fulfill that reason. Because God lives within each of us. He works through us in various ways. Therefore, we are all equal.
My upbringing was very conventional. My parents taught me that marriages are sacred and that families are the foundation of society. It is possible to give up alcoholism before marriage. An inappropriate relationship is wrong. To enjoy the pleasures of life you have to give up some things. Aren’t these ratings very important?
If asked if I would be the best president to spread Christianity through America, I would definitely not be. I am not the right choice for that. But I will stand firmly to maintain the values established by the United States. Vivek Ramasamy, 38, hails from southwest Ohio. It is noteworthy that his father and mother were immigrants from Kerala to America and Vivek Ramasamy claims that he knows Tamil.
