    Re: US Seeks 'Clarification' on India's Crackdown on Ford Foundation,

    I was wondering why its so late in coming :D
    *Phew

    :D
    EEdiats.. India should shove the clarification up Unca Sams bumbums.

    So much investment gone to waste because of the amateur drama and dharna director Kejriwala.


    GoI should put all the Ford Foundation transactions with JNU under scanner,..especially the Centers like Law and Governance which Ford has shown so much interest in , including to start such a centers.

    So much of them faculties from JNU in Parliamentary committees.

    Washington has so much at stake here... :D

    Re: US Seeks 'Clarification' on India's Crackdown on Ford Foundation,

    According to Canadian researcher, Vivian Krause, up to $300 million have been pumped since 2000 into Canadian NGOs by major US foundations such as Ford, Rockefeller, Hewlett, Packard, and Gates among others - some of whom are also major donors in India.
    The legitimate concern is that with their deep pockets, these large US based foundations - who can muster resources that dwarf those of any Canadian donor - can have a disproportionate impact on the state of the debate in Canada. In particular, the danger is of skewing the discourse in favour of the agenda of US-based environmental activists who themselves would not bear the brunt of any possible economic damage caused to Canada by pursuing an excessively stringent environmental policy.
    The Canadian experience should give pause to assorted leftists, activists, journalists and commentators in India who heap scorn on the legitimate concerns raised about the potentially damaging effects foreign-funded NGOs could be having on the prospects for rapid economic development in India. And for those suspicious of the timing of this leaked IB report in the early days of the Modi-led government, recall that Manmohan Singh during the much publicised protests in 2012 against the Koodankulam nuclear reactor in Tamil Nadu gave exactly the same warning that foreign-funded NGOs could be having a detrimental effect on India's economic development. In recent years, an average per year of a massive Rs 10,000 crore or approximately $2 billion has flowed into Indian NGOs, according to data declared under India's Foreign Contributions Registration Act (FCRA). And this is probably an underestimate given that shockingly 40 per cent of the NGOs don't fulfil their compliance requirement under Indian law.

    Ford Foundation and Greenpeace got involved in anti India activities in side India.

    No need giving clarifications.

    Just zap them between the eyes with the facts.

    If you close the funding, most stupid stuff will stop itself including the media lies.

    They can, and I am sure they have. This seeking clarification is to exert pressure.

    :lol:

    The prospect of losing livelihood by pandering lies, encouraging anti-national activities and political terrorism must be a horrifying thought for pseudo-intellectuals.

    Tweets like these actually validate the GoI actions against NGOs with questionable foreign fundings.

    We should give a strategic response, Let them seek what ever info they want. The ban seems apt since these institutions have not followed Indian laws.

    Dear Mr. Obama

    Really sorry but its 11:12 PM in the night here in India. Tomorrow morning all 1250 million of us Indians alongwith all our dogs, cats, cows and cattle, promise to give the clarification you ask for.

    Thanks and regards

    This guy whose tweet you have quoted is actually called Simon. He retains the name Mihir Sharma in public. And he is a hardcore Kejri-bhakt.
