The Alliance for Justice and Accountability, a coalition of bodies and individuals which organised the protest, was backed by several Indian Americans. One of the members of the organising body said 70% of Indians did not vote for Modi in the general election this year and that they were representing that group.

Modi was denied visa by the USA over the 2002 Gujarat riots. In March last year, his keynote address at the prestigious Wharton India Economic Forum in Pennsylvania was cancelled in the face of strong opposition from professors, students and other stakeholders. Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat then.
