We know where masterminds of 9/11 and 26/11 are hiding: PM Modi in Houston
Addressing "Howdy, Modi!" alongside the US President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that whole world knows which country harbours hatred for India and supports terrorism against it.
Defending his government's decision to revoke Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, PM Modi said that with the Article 370 of Indian Constitution, people of Jammu and Kashmir were deprived of the equal rights and some terrorist outfits were taking undue advantage of the situation.
Trump, who spoke before Modi, vowed to fight “radical Islamic terrorism”, drawing loud applause from the 50,000-strong audience and a standing ovation from Modi and the Indian delegation sitting in front of the stage, including external affairs minister S Jaishankar.
Speaking about the changes in Kashmir and the need to tackle terrorism, Modi said India had “bid farewell” to Article 370 to bring about far-reaching changes. Without naming Pakistan, he added, “India’s decision on Article 370 has troubled some people who can’t even handle their own country. These are the people spreading hatred for India, who don’t want peace and are supporting and nurturing terrorism.”
“Be it 9/11 in America or 26/11 in Mumbai, where can the conspirators be found? The time has come for a decisive battle to be fought against terrorism and those backing it,” he said.
In a 50-minute long speech, PM Narendra Modi also hinted a trade deal with the US.
