The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania this week rescinded an invitation to speak after pressure from Indian American professors at Penn.
Many predict Modi could be the next Prime Minister of India. But his detractors accuse him of standing idle while thousands were massacred during anti-Muslim riots in 2002 in Gujarat.
“The Wharton Forum would have given the students a chance to ask the Gujarat chief minister hard questions,” Ron Somers, president of the US-India Business Council, said.
More reaction to this controversy can be found in the Times of India.
