Centre Launches Funding Probe Against Amnesty, Charged With Sedition

Posted by: 2016-08-17 06:20:05 , By Mr. Raj Kumar

The union Home Ministry has begun what officials describe as a preliminary exercise to find out whether human rights-focused NGO Amnesty International's India chapter has the required permission to receive foreign funding.
The investigation comes amid allegations that anti-India slogans were raised at a debate on Kashmir organised by Amnesty in Bengaluru on the weekend. A sedition case has been registered by the Bengaluru police against Amnesty India after a complaint was filed by the ABVP, a student body affiliated to the BJP's ideological mentor the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh or RSS.
The Home Ministry's preliminary probe, which will also check the amount of funds that the NGO has received so far and its expenses, is being carried out under the provisions of the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act or FCRA to determine whether there has been any violation of the law by Amnesty India, a Home Ministry official said.
