Modi government cancels foreign funds license of leading police research institute

Modi-led BJP government has canceled the license of India’s leading policy research institution Centre for Policy Research (CPR) which enabled it to receive foreign funds for research. The government claimed that the institute had violated the draconian Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA). 

The FCRA allows the Hindu supremacist government to block organizations and charities that support minorities from receiving overseas funding. The law has led to the shutdown of several minority-run charities and human rights groups, including Amnesty International’s India offices.
