Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Donald Trump at Howdy Modi event in Houston today, Live Updates:
In a veiled attack at Pakistan’s efforts to rake the Kashmir issue at international forums, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370 "has troubled some people who cannot handle their country and who support terrorism".
While addressing a massive gathering of nearly 50,000 Indian-Americans at the mega ‘Howdy, Modi’ event in Houston, which was also attended by US President Donald Trump, Modi said the "conspirators of 9/11 and 26/11 belonged to the same country".
"India’s decision on Article 370 has troubled some people, who can’t handle their country, who support terrorism. It is a breeding ground for terrorism. Be it 9/11 attack in USA or 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, the perpetrators of the acts have been found in that one country," the Prime Minister told the crowd.
Modi also said that while India lauded and bid farewell to the 70-year-old law (Article 370), the development was being used by separatists and terrorists.
