Deemed 'anti-national', Bengaluru NGO takes MHA to court

Posted by: 2017-01-20 11:52:10 , By Mr. Raj Kumar
 

A Bengaluru based NGO has filed a petition against the Ministry of Home Affairs for refusing to renew its license to receive foreign funds. The NGO has moved the Karnataka High court to seek evidence of wrong doing from the MHA. Institute of Public Health was denied renewal of FCRA licence by the ministry along with 24 other NGOs in October 2016 in a move to curb foreign funding for NGOs indulging in anti-national activities.


Puzzled by the blacklisting by MHA, IPH approached the ministry as well as the Prime Minister's office. Multiple representations yielded no response following which IPH approached the Karnataka High Court for reprieve.


"We have sought evidence of our NGO indulging in anti-national activities from the MHA. We have always worked with the union as well as state governments in many public health projects. We feel there has been a mistake. Surprised that we were deemed anti-nation since we have neither indulged in any activity against the government nor criticism of it," said Dr N Devadasan, Director, Institute of public health.
