U.S. court seeks explanation from Modi over annexation of IOK

Pakistan Denied Airspace To Modi For His Trip And Indians Are Regretting Asking For It In The First Place Rahul Gandhi takes a swipe at Narendra Modi's Howdy event again

As the large Indian American community in Houston and across America prepare to greet Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the "Howdy Modi" event on Sunday, thousands of separatist Sikhs and Pakistanis have converged here to hold a protest against Modi.

"Americans must know where is Kashmir and where is Assam and what horrors are taking place over there", said Nasrullah, adding that Washington should not focus on trade at a time when minorities in India are being subjected to such "hardships". It's Shringla who's reportedly the brain behind setting up a second meeting between Modi and Trump at the sidelines of the UNGA on September 24. Trump also praised the contributions of the Indian-Americans, saying they have enriched "our culture and uplifted our values". I admire him also for his sense of leadership and passion for America.

Modi is popular among Indian-Americans, a group that has not traditionally voted homogeneously in USA elections. "Be it 9/11 attack in U.S. or 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, the perpetrators of the acts have been found in that one country", the Prime Minister told the crowd.

The Prime Minister also provided a glimpse of India's culture when he spoke in several regional languages including Tamil and Malayalam to say "everything is fine" in India. Apart from this PM will also address the plenary of the Bloomberg Conference and will interact with CEOs and leaders to top companies to woo investors.

Trump contradicts aides, self on Iran talks
The US military, he said, was working with its partners to "address this unprecedented attack". "That was a very large attack, and it could be met by an attack many, many times larger".

Lauding the US President for deciding to attend the event, the spokesperson said, "this is a special gesture to extend goodwill and friendship to the people of India as well as the Indian American diaspora".

Howdy Modi is one of the highlights of the Prime Minister's seven-day tour in the US.

More than a 1,000 Gujaratis from Houston are preparing for a mega "dandiya", a traditional Gujarati dance, to welcome the Prime Minister for the event. People were chanting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's name long before he appeared in a welcome for a foreign leader rarely seen on the American soil.

Mr Trump is set next week to meet more formally with Mr Modi, and also see PM Khan when the leaders are in NY for the United Nations General Assembly. "Under PM Modi's leadership, the world is witnessing a strong, sovereign republic of India".
