While Indians around the world celebrated the success of 'Howdy Modi', the event held for PM Narendra Modi in Housaton, Texas on Sunday, not all were allowed to be part of the event.

Indian-American stand-up comedian Hasan Minhaj was in Houston to attend the grand event. He even posted a photo of himself outside the rally's venue.

Videos of the incident was shared on Twitter as well. One Twitter user referred to the incident as "Islamophobia".
