Prime Minister Narendra Modi, speaking at the mega-event ‘Howdy, Modi’ at the NRG Stadium in Houston referred to Pakistan in a veiled attack, without naming it, for its role in spreading terrorism. PM Modi said, “Certain people have a problem with India’s decisions. These are people who cannot even handle their own nations.”
PM Modi slammed Pakistan for spreading negativity against India. He said, “These people have made their hate against India, the centre of their political agenda. These are the people who do not want peace and are the supporters of terrorism. They breed and feed terrorists. Not just you, the world recognises them very well.” He further spoke about the terror attacks in America and in India by saying, “In America, whether it is 9/11 or 26/11 in Mumbai, where do you find the masterminds of these attacks?”
He added, “Friends, the time has come to fight a decisive war against terror and people who promote terror. Today, I would like to emphasis and say that President Trump, with full strength, is standing against terror. We will give a standing ovation to Donald Trump for his morale against fighting terrorism.”
Prior to PM Modi, President Donald Trump speaking on terror said that he stands with India to protect citizens of both countries from the threat of 'radical Islamic terror.' Following the statement, the US President was greeted with long, thunderous applause from the Indian-American community in Texas.
Donald Trump said, "We honour the Indian and American military servicemen who safeguard our freedom. We stand proudly in defensive liberty and we are committed to protecting innocent civilians with the threat of radical Islamic terrorism. Both India and the US also understand to keep our community safe, we must protect our borders. We are going to take if Indian-Americans before the illegal immigrants."
