Modi & Khan offer different narratives before UN | Diya TV News

NEW YORK (Diya TV) —  Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan took the dais at the United Nations with very different outlooks and approaches.

Modi denounced terrorism and did not mention Kashmir in his 15 minute speech, instead focusing on environmental protection and development issues such as healthcare.

Khan spoke for nearly an hour and warned India’s actions in Kashmir could cause a “bloodbath” between these nuclear powers that could have “consequences far beyond the borders.”

Meanwhile, there were dueling narratives in the streets of New York as well, as thousands of people across the street from UN headquarters protested, with some supporting India’s action in Kashmir and others in stark opposition.

Sandeep Dhaliwal, a Harris County Deputy Sheriff and the first Sikh in Texas to wear a Turban while on duty, was shot and killed from behind while conducting a routine traffic stop. Two people are in custody in connection with the shooting. A community-led vigil was put together to pay respects to this father of three.

Former U.S. Ambassador to India Richard Verma was on hand for the launch of the Cornell India Law Center, an effort to teach Cornell law students Indian law and exposure to the subcontinent through internships in New Delhi and a dual-degree program with Jindal Global Law School.

Hydroxychloroquine

WASHINGTON (Diya TV)  — India confirmed they will fulfill the order the U.S. made for hydroxychloroquine, just a couple of days after they banned all exports of the malaria treatment without exception. President Trump and Prime Minister Modi spoke about keeping the supply chain intact over the weekend. And India says the U.S. purchase was approved before President Trump said there would be ‘retaliation’ if the drug was not released, medicine that is being used to treat coronavirus patients without definitive evidence it works. India says they have enough hydroxychloroquine stock for its people today, but reserves the right to hold back the supply if their COVID-19 caseload increases.

One day after he defended firing Captain Brett Crozier from command of the USS Theodore Roosevelt by calling him “stupid,” Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly resigned. Modly was severely criticized for firing Crozier, after the captain wrote an alarming letter seeking faster assistance for his sailors exposed to COVID-19 on board, a letter that was leaked to the press.

Trump calls on Modi to supply Hydroxychloroquine

Trump

WASHINGTON (Diya TV)  — President Trump spoke to Prime Minister Modi over the weekend about how the two nations would combat the coronavirus, with a focus on ensuring the supply chain for pharmaceuticals and medical goods continues. But at a press conference, when informed India had banned the export of the drug hydroxychloroquine “without any exceptions,” Trump threatened retaliation. Hydroxychloroquine is typically used to treat malaria, but some COVID-19 patients have found it helpful. And the President has been touting it during his press conferences, without a clinical trial proving if it is indeed effective. India provides nearly half of America’s supply of the medicine. It is not clear whether India’s ban would apply to orders already placed.

Prime Minister Modi called on his nation to unite in the battle against COVID-19 by lighting diyas for 9 minutes at 9 pm Sunday night. Millions of people around India took part, which is now entering its third week of being mandated to stay at home to stop the spread of the virus.

Trump

During a White House Press briefing, President Trump recounted having a conversation with Indian Prime Minister Modi Sunday morning about the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. When informed by reporters that Modi was unlikely to release to any nation hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to treat malaria that may be helpful in treating COVID-19, Trump responded in shock, stating that he didn’t like the plan and that he would be surprised if this was the Prime Minister’s decision due to India’s strong economic ties with the United States in the trade sector. Trump stated that this course of action wouldn’t be consequence free, and that there may be retaliation in response.
