Protest against Modi to be held in Houston today
HOUSTON: A mass protest against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Howdy, Modi!” event has been planned in Houston, US on Sunday (today).
More than 50,000 Indian-Americans from across the US have registered for the September 22 ‘Howdy, Modi! Shared Dreams, Bright Futures’ event to be held at the sprawling NRG Stadium in Houston.
US President Donald Trump will also join PM Modi’s ‘Howdy, Modi!’ mega diaspora event in the United States.
But human rights organizations are also set to draw more than 15,000 people to counter-rallies outside the stadium, aiming to raise awareness of the alleged human rights violations in Indian-administered Kashmir, as well as other parts of India, including Assam state.
