India critics popped up after govt cut off foreign NGO funding in 2016-17

3 August, New Delhi (IANS) Between 2011 and 2017, the Indian government deregistered 18,868 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for violating different provisions of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 2010, and the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Rules, 2011.

As a result of the government’s tightening of FCRA standards, non-profits in India got Rs 11,274 crore less in foreign contributions in 2016-17. (from Rs 17,773 crore in 2015-16 to Rs 6,499 crore).

The year 1989 is seen as a turning point in Kashmir when armed insurgency reached its peak. However, as this paper demonstrates, the planning began much earlier. The expanded activities of Jamaat and its offshoots in Kashmir, according to the report, were a crucial driver.

“In this context, the years 2015-2016 are crucial, as we see significant investments not only in ‘boosting’ the profile and stature of existing ‘assets,’ but also in roping in a number of new ‘assets’ to push their narrative against India, a project that appears to be peaking by 2019,” according to Disinfo Lab.
