Bengaluru: The countdown for the Howdy Modi has already begun, with as many as 50000 Indian Americans planning to attend the event in Houston on Sunday, September 22. 

While the preparations are going on fastidiously in spite of the sky opening up, we should tell you that preparations are also going on for another event, which has on its agenda thwarting the success of the Howdy Modi event.

Swarajya reported that organisers of the anti-Modi protests have even distributed bus schedules detailing pick-up points for protesters. Incidentally, 16 out of these 17 pick-up points coincide with mosques or Islam centres, thus, propelling the thoughts that they are being orchestrated with the fulcrum of ideological leanings. 

British media personality Katie Hopkins took to Twitter to publicise how mosques were being used to co-ordinate the planned disruption of Modi’s address.


Enraged at such a move to besmirch the event, several people have drawn the attention of US authorities, requesting them to look into the issue and take measures to prevent any untoward incident. 

The website says that this will not be the first time that separatist and pro-Pakistan groups have bused in protesters to launch a confrontational demonstration against India; earlier this month a number of Pakistani and Pro-Khalistan protesters had surrounded the Indian High Commission in London, with some members of the crowd vandalising the building with projectiles.

In that incident as well, large numbers of protesters were bused in from towns. 

Interestingly, even in Seoul, a video of BJP leader Shazia Ilmi confronting Pakistani protesters on the streets of Seoul had surfaced in last August. The protesters were shouting anti-India slogans and anti-Modi slogans as the Indian government abrogated the long-standing Articles 370 and 35A.

On the 22nd of this month, when Modi addresses Indian Americans, even President Trump will be at the event.
