‘Howdy, Modi’ In Houston: PM Slams Pakistan For Terrorism, Also Praises Trump’s Presence At The Event Via Tweet
As it was expected across the globe and in India, the ‘Howdy, Modi’ event in Houston held at the NRG Stadium, on Sunday, September 22, 2019, turned out to be a big success for the Indian Prime Minister in many ways and also for the US President Donald Trump.

But most importantly, it was also a great opportunity for PM Modi to slam Pakistan, although indirectly, for spreading terrorism in the entire world.
Addressing a crowd of more than 50,000 in the stadium, he reminded everyone of the terror attacks of 9/11 and 26/11 in America and India, which were carried out in the past.
While hinting at Pakistan indirectly, he asked the people, "Where do you find conspirators of 9/11 and 26/11 terror attacks?"
Further, he said that from now on there will be a “decisive battle” against terrorism and those who support it.
Moreover, speaking once again about the revoking of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, he asked everyone to give a standing ovation to those Indian parliamentarians who gave a nod to removing the special status of Kashmir and thus, making it a part of the Indian constitution.
As the event was also a medium, to somehow, get support and confidence of the voters for Donald Trump in the 2020 Presidential elections in the US, PM Modi also praised him and said that whenever he meets him, there’s always great energy, friendliness, and warmth between them.
He also, in a way, wished luck to Mr. Trump by saying "Abki Baar Trump Saarkar". And it was cheered by thousands of people who were present in the stadium, as it reminded them of the now-iconic tagline "Abki Baar Modi Sarkaar", which was used by the prime minister during his own election campaigns as well.
One day after the event, he also praised Trump’s presence at 'Howdy, Modi', and described it as a "watershed moment" in history, for both India and the United States.
In a series of tweets, on Monday, September 23, 2019, the Indian PM also said that the memories of this event will always remain with him.
