Delhi: The Howdy Modi event welcoming Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Houston in the USA saw the participation of over 50,000 Americans. The PM was accompanied by American President Donald Trump for the mega event.

However, during the event, hundreds of protesters rallied outside the NRG Stadium in Houston. According to protestors, their objective was to bring the attention of the international community towards the genocide in Kashmir.

The protestors also raised and chanted slogans saying ‘Modi is a terrorist’ and ‘No justice, No Peace.’ The protest was carried out against India’s decision to repeal Article 370.

Shehla Rashid, an activist, took to Twitter and said, “Protestors in Houston highlight how Modi has brutalised Kashmir by choking off communication and medical aid, reminding him that the world is watching his fascist actions. #AdiosModi #UnjailKashmir (sic).”

In another tweet, Shehla said, “Huge protests in Houston against ’Modi’s murderous regime which has seen lynching of minorities, disrespect for human rights, civil liberties, democratic rights and even basic fundamental rights. Modi is touring the US on the 50th day of an ongoing lockdown in Kashmir (sic).”

Apart from this, a Facebook event was also posted — Houston’s Modi protest. The page shows that the International Humanitarian Foundation Inc had posted the event.
