The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Front Page -

PM Naren­dra Modi met groups of Sikhs, Mus­lims, and Kash­miri Pan­dits ahead of the Hous­ton rally on Sun­day in an os­ten­si­ble ef­fort to show­case In­dia’s plu­ral­ity, and pre­empt­ing protests about the govern­ment’s ap­proach to and treat­ment of mi­nori­ties. “You have suf­fered a lot… let us to­gether build a new Kash­mir,” Modi told the group of Kash­miri Pan­dits. Mean­while, as dis­af­fected Kash­miri Mus­lims and some sep­a­ratist Sikhs joined Pak­ista­nis to demon­strate against Modi, there were also stray groups of Sind­his, Baloch, and Pash­tuns protest­ing against Pak­istan’s treat­ment of its mi­nori­ties.
