About 200 Indian-Americans marched in protest against the controversial withdrawal of an invitation to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to speak at the Wharton India Economic Forum.
A noted Indian-American physician has withdrawn from the annual Wharton India Economic Forum in the wake the organiser`s decision to cancel a key-note address by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
The group is also planning to hold a peaceful protest outside the venue of the annual student-run India-centric conference hosted by the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania on March 23.
"Unfortunate and disrespectful. Since when is an American University against free speech?" asked USIBC president Ron Somers.
After being snubbed by the Wharton University, support for Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi seems to be growing and this time it has come from unexpected quarters.
After Arvind Kejriwal, it is now the turn of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi who has been invited to deliver a lecture at Wharton India Economic Forum on Tuesday.
