Article 370 has troubled ‘some people’ who can’t manage their own country: Modi
HOUSTON: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a jibe at his Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan during an event ‘Howdy, Modi!’ held a day earlier in his honour in Houston.
Without naming Pakistan, he said these people have put their hatred of India at the centre of their political agenda
“India’s decision on Article 370 has troubled some people, who can’t manage their own country,” Modi said.
“Whether it is the 9/11 in America or 26/11 in Mumbai, where are its conspirators found? Not just you, the whole world knows who these people are,” Modi can be heard saying in clips broadcasted during the event.
The ‘Howdy, Modi’ gathering was organized in honour of the Indian premier at a football stadium in Houston, which was also attended by the US President Donald Trump.
During the rally, both the leaders praised each other in an unusual joint appearance inside the football stadium.
“We are committed to protecting innocent civilians from radical Islamic terrorism,” said Trump, receiving a loud cheer from the audience – including Modi – who stood up from their seats.
In the meantime, legions of Muslim and Sikh protestors, including members of human rights organization protested against the Indian premier outside the ‘Howdy, Modi!’ rally in Houston.
The protest was launched in ire of New Delhi’s human rights violation of Kashmiri civilians as its curfew continues to mute the disputed region. Participants came with banners and Kashmiri flags, urging the international community to help bring an end to the situation.
