India’s Continued Attack on Foreign NGOs

February 28, 2019

02/16/2019 India (International Christian Concern) – According Asia News, the current BJP-led government of India has cancelled the licenses of 15,000 foreign NGOs in just the past five years. Many are concerned that this continued attack on NGOs in India will lead to marginalized populations not receiving necessary aid and human rights standards not being respected.

Speaking to Asia News, John Dayal, General Secretary of the All India Christian Council, said, “Every Indian government, but especially the current one led by the Hindu nationalist BJP, has been hostile to international organizations and media scrutiny.” According to Dayal, this stems from the fact that NGOs investigate human rights and other development issues.

Recently, Greenpeace India was forced to close two regional offices and had their bank accounts frozen after urging the government to address India’s deteriorating air quality issue.

Christians NGOs and NGOs promoting religious freedom have come under particular scrutiny. According to Dayal, “India does not usually grant a visa to United Nations special envoys to investigate human rights. It is very hostile to them. This is especially true when Western governments raise questions about the treatment of Christians, Muslims and Dalits.

In 2017, India forced out Compassion International because of false claims they were engaged in promoting religious conversions. Prior to being forced out of India, Compassion International gave $45 million in aid a year to 280,000 children in India. It was India’s largest donor in its 48 years of operation.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
