Donald Trump saying Howdy Modi will be… interesting
Recently, it was announced that Trump will be joining Modi on September 22, in his rally in Houston which was named “Howdy, Modi!” to sound witty, I suppose.
The fact that Donald Trump is doing a rally with Modi in the US definitely caused a lot of interesting debate
The Modi-Trump rally is apparently an opportunity to show strong ties between the United States and India and more than 50,000 people are estimated to attend.
Trump will appear with Indian PM Narendra Modi at next Sunday’s “Howdy, Modi” event at NRG Stadium in Houston, which is expected to be attended by tens of thousands, the White House has announced.

Of course, Indians celebrated this event and never one to miss the chance to take a dig at Pakistanis, they decided to take some swipes at Imran Khan.
Indians thought Donald Trump and Modi doing a joint rally was somehow a burn for Imran Khan
The gnashing of teeth you hear is from @ImranKhanPTI. Poor man, already in a state of near-hysteria 24/7 over #Kashmir post-#Article370, is going to implode. #HowdyModi https://t.co/qlAC7tT3BX

They tried very hard to fire all sorts of petty insults
However, they failed miserably because the Pakistanis had other opinions
I mean sure, the petty insults were cute and all but one can’t really forget that this rally comes amidst a time when Pakistan is fiercely vocalizing its support for Kashmir. To be really honest, aside from the Indians, the world itself is not so pleased to see these two authoritarians join hands. People wondered if Trump would say anything about Kashmir.
Given the controversial pasts and presents of each ruler, the Modi-Trump union is hardly something to feel joyous over. Pakistanis wonder if they are going to address the Kashmir Issue considering how badly the victims of Kashmir need the people in power to help.
Modi is a Hindu Nationalist who was denied entry to the US for years because he was responsible for failing to stop the massacre of Muslims in India when he was minister of Gujrat. Trump loves the best people. I wonder if Trump will say anything about Kashmir… https://t.co/VfQIs0uuGN

Some cringed at the ridiculous name of the rally
I mean “Howdy Modi!” is not a name to be proud of. It was straight-up vomit-inducing for some.
It’s a great thing that Tulsi Gabbard dropped out. It’s not a good look for a Democratic presidential candidate to share the stage with Trump.
Also, the name “Howdy Modi” — excuse me while I vomit uncontrollably. pic.twitter.com/T7W0fbWkqh

Even some brave Indians themselves were calling out the union
Well, fascism loves company, I guess.
Confirmed: Trump will be at Howdy Modi a week from today in Houston, Texas.
Takes a fascist to know one.https://t.co/h1tK1iFcqJ

Besides, they shall make a mockery of millions of people who are suffering currently, in India, because of wrong policies of Modi. I suggest that his supporters should return back to India and face the music. No theatrics please, remember U S has Trump & we have a Trumpet.

Some people called the Modi-Trump unit part of the same gang
People sick of the heartlessness exhibited by people in power are outraged to the point of calling them racists and thugs.
TRUMP MODI n NETHANYAHU all part of the same gang. The three filled with hate n spitting VENOM at minorities. The three RACIST must be dealt with severely before they bring chaos to the entire global communities. Rise up against the trios FACIST THUGS.

After all, Kashmir continues to suffer while they celebrate a joint rally
It’s almost horrifying how these people are desensitized to human suffering.
This is what is happening in Kashmir, as Trump prepares to join Hindu nationalist Modi in a Houston event called "Howdy, Modi" next week https://t.co/5x50qpDSiR

Americans also had some things to say about the Modi-Trump rally
Previously Trump had offered to mediate between India and Pakistan on matters of Kashmir but India had declared it a bilateral issue and Indians proceeded to curse out Trump. Now suddenly, he is their best friend. Interesting, how the tides change.
Indians are jumping up and down becz Trump is attending event in Houston along with Modi. The same Trump to whom whole India was cursing and calling liar when we spoke about mediating on Kashmir….. Why you guys are so spineless.

Regardless, everyone knows they will get some funny moments out of this joke
Considering the theatrics both of these rulers like to play out, there’s no doubt the rally would be an entertaining one.
Expect theatrics and more theatrics when Trump and Modi share the stage in Houston https://t.co/f20KbQWyHx

Will the issue of Kashmir be brought up (lol who’re we kidding, it won’t)? Is this combined rally a wise decision? Do you think Pakistan has more to lose than gain from these turn of events? Let us know in the comments.
