Human rights organisation 🕯Amnesty International 🇮🇳India had been denied permission to receive foreign funds💰 through the “prior-permission” category on 4⃣ occasions by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). Moreover, 🕯Amnesty is not❌ registered under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) 📜Act. The organisation has come to light after currently facing sedition⚠ charges during a human rights seminar they organised where anti-national slogans🗣 were chanted. Although the sedition charges may be petty, there seems to be a deeper issue with the organisation regarding its funding💰 that hasn’t yet been revealed. 🕯Amnesty International 🇮🇳India sought permission to open a regional headquarters in 🌆Delhi but it was improbable that the Home Ministry would agree to it. 🕯Amnesty 🇮🇳India was granted permission✅ to receive funds in 2000, 2003, 2009, & 2012. However, it was denied❎ permission to receive funds in 2010, twice in 2012 & in 2013🤔.
