In a thinly veiled attack on Pakistan, PM Modi took down the terror backing elements and stated that the 'world knows who they are,' with US President Donald Trump seated in the front row. Speaking at the extravagant Howdy, Modi! event in Houston, Texas, PM Modi questioned where the masterminds of the terror attacks of 9/11 in New York and 26/11 Mumbai were found, taking an explicit dig at Pakistan, over Osama bin Laden and Hafiz Saeed. In his address, PM Modi even asserted that US President Trump is standing in a fight against terror.
PM Modi said, "Some people, who can't handle their own country, have a problem with what India is doing. They have made hatred towards India their political agenda. They are those people, who don't want peace and are supporters of terrorism, and breed terrorism. Not just you, but the entire world recognises them."
"From 9/11 in America or 26/11 in Mumbai, where were the masterminds found? The time has come to fight against terrorism and supporters of terrorism. I would like to say is loud, in this fight, President Trump is standing against terrorism. We will give President Trump a standing ovation for his moral to fight terrorism," he added.
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."
