Howdy Imran: Pakistan in soup as Modi, trump raise pitch against cross-border terrorism

After the abrogation of article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir by Prime Minister Narendra Modi led NDA government, Pakistan Prime Minister has been trying to internationalise the issue alleging 'human-rights violations' by India. But highly successful Howdy Modi event in Houston on Sunday saw PM Modi and US President Donald Trump holding the hands of each other and telling the world that radical Islamic terrorism and cross border terrorism would be tackled with full force and both India and US have the right to protect their borders.

Imran Khan's claim falls flat

Pakistan's involvement in hiding and protecting conspirators of 26/11 attack in the US, and 26/11 Mumbai attacks, is well established. Minorities in Pakistan live under constant fear and face daily persecution and oppression. But Pakistan has been alleging India of being a perpetrator of human rights--an allegation that has failed to get any serious attention from the international community--and now Trump has extended support to India to "have a right to protect its borders".

A big diplomatic win for India

The US President Donald Trump extending support to India on the issue of cross-border terrorism considerably weakens Pakistan's already feeble support base. Modi minced no-words to talk about the "positive impact of abrogation of Article 370" on the people of Jammu and Kashmir, and the necessity of changing the status quo as India's neighbour was trying to destabilise the border through cross-border terrorism. This comes at a time when Pakistan is going to raise the Kashmir issue at the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly. But Imran Khan has failed to convince the world leaders about Pakistan's record when it comes to fighting terrorism and making the world a safe place.

Trump to safeguard the interest of India

During the Howdy Modi event, trump even went to say that " India can be sure of Trump as being the best man in the White House to protect its interest". 

The Modi-Trump bonhomie speaks about India's past record to successfully protect Human rights of all and play its part as a responsible global leader. 

Imran Khan, on the other hand, has failed miserably to drum up support even in Pakistan. Imran's reputation has nosedived in recent months and this could be a serious threat to his political survival. 
In response to 'Howdy Modi", Narendra Modi commented: "Everything is fine in India". 

But Pakistan PM would be in a tough situation if asked: Howdy Imran !!
