Kashmiris Sue Modi in U.S. Court as Trump Prepares to Appear with Indian PM at Texas Rally

HeadlineSep 20, 2019

A pair of Kashmiri citizens have filed a lawsuit in the United States against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for carrying out extrajudicial killings and other crimes in occupied Kashmir. The lawsuit was filed just days before Modi is scheduled to speak at a major rally called “Howdy, Modi!” in Houston, Texas, where he will be joined by President Trump.

In other news on India, as many as 10 mass detention centers are being built in the northeast state of Assam. This comes just weeks after India stripped nearly 2 million residents of Assam of their citizenship.
