US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will address a Hindu-American rally in New Jersey on October 15. Half of the proceedings from the event would benefit Kashmiri Pandits in India.

"This is a charity concert organised for the benefit of terror victims in various countries. The 50 per cent of the proceeds from this concert will go for the benefit of Kashmiri Pandits in India," said Shalabh Kumar, founder of Republican Hindu Coalition (RHC).

This will be Trump's first event addressing only a specific ethnic group, PTI reported.

Previously, Trump had confirmed his participation to the event in a video message. He further praised the Hindu community in the US for making "fantastic contributions to world civilisation and to American culture."

He had also released a video message inviting Indian-Americans to attend the "incredible" event on October 15.
