Stating that Greenpeace India has “continued to violate FCRA norms”, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has cancelled the registration of the NGO
under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act.
Govt. has been cracking down on NGO's ever since it came to power. Until now it has cracked down on nearly 20000+ NGO's.
India is no exception,Russia had earlier arrested and imprisoned 30 Greenpeace activists for preventing oil drilling in Arctic waters. New Zealand
decided to revoke the charity status of Greenpeace because its activists routinely trespassed on private property. In the past few years, Indonesia
has also detained, deported or simply refused entry to numerous Greenpeace activists who were campaigning against its palm-oil industry, including
Greenpeace UK’s executive director.
As in most developing countries, big development projects in India are fraught with problems thrown up by displacement, land acquisition, conflicts
with locals and tribes, compensation, permits and bureaucracy. Greenpeace does nothing but often exploits and exacerbates these difficulties. Rather
than trying to open up the debate, win the argument and rally the Indian masses to its cause, Greenpeace merely pretends to act on behalf of blighted
