HOUSTON: A delegation of the Kashmiri Pandit community met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Houston on Saturday and thanked him for the historic decision to revoke Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
PM Modi acknowledged the hardships endured by the community following their exodus from their ancestral homeland back in 1989-1990 due to militancy. “You have suffered a lot, but the world is changing,” said PM Modi. “We have to move ahead together and build a new Kashmir.”
“I had a special interaction with Kashmiri Pandits in Houston,” PM Modi tweeted following the interaction.
One of the members of the group kissed PM Modi’s hand to thank him “on behalf of 7 lakh Kashmiri Pandits” for the move. The group assured the Prime Minister of their community’s full support in building a peaceful and prosperous Kashmir.
