Houston, Texas (US), September 23, 2019: Sikhs for Justice, Pakistanis and Kashmiris organized a massive protest at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's joint rally with President Donald Trump on Sunday.
The group protested because they believe ethnic violence and human rights abuses under Modi have put India on a genocide watch list.
Since he took office five years ago, the group said violence against social and religious minorities has become much worse.
"There are 800,000 soldiers in India-occupied Kashmir," protester Syed Alie said. "The people there are denied their access to freedom. They cannot get out of their home."
The protesters gathered on the south side of NRG, chanting, "Go back Modi" and "Modi is a terrorist." They said they wanted to make sure Modi knew he was not welcome in Houston.
"America is not the place for Modi," Sikhs for Justice leader Gurpatwant Pannun said. "America stands for the right to life and liberty and property and that is exactly what Modi stands against."
"Modi is deaf and blind anyway, because if he can see something, he already sees he is killing eight million Kashmirians," Pannun said.
