Can you spot “ISI” in this letter by ‘Howdy, Modi’ protesters?

Here is the email that was sent by the organizers of the anti-Modi/anti-Bharat protest at the “Howdy, Modi” event in Houston, Texas, on Sunday.

As is well known by now, the protest organizers are very energetically busing protesters from 17 locations in Houston to protest at the venue of Shri Modi’s event (the NRG stadium). These 17 comprise 16 Islamic centers/mosques and 1 Gurudwara with Khalistani connections. I won’t go into those details, one can find the entire list here.

But one should wonder: who is organizing this?  Who is paying for the buses? I have it from good sources that these protesters also have an “attendance” (“present, Sir” type thing) and receive a per-protest stipend: in other words, they are “professional protesters”, if you will. 

So let me see if HinduPost’s astute readers can spot the term “Pakistan’s ISI” in the email below:

You got it! The “some very generous donors”!   This is an out and out Pak army/ISI’s India desk operation. It is bankrolled by them, and organized by their operatives. Just like the so-called “spontaneous protests” in Kashmir. 

Most of the protesters are of Pakistani origin, so it would neither shock nor upset them to know that the ISI is bankrolling this. They all probably know, and feel that it is OK. But what about the Khalistanis? Do they really believe that they have better friends among the ISI than among their mother community to which all of their Gurus belonged?   

Anyway, the combined strength of these forces is far less than the proud Bharatiya diaspora in the US, 50,000 of whom are coming to Houston to attend the event.  

Jai Hind!
