10:36 pm
extensive outreach. despite that, we were not able to get a spokesperson to join us, but we have you live in a comment section on the chip. but your comments right here, the questions like half wrap panel. i will do my best to bring your ideas, your thoughts into the program. let's start with this idea that these regulations on ngo's receiving foreign funding not new, not specific to the ruling b, j, p. the a former congress party, when they were in power. they also started to look at regulations for ngos. but earlier we spoke to lucia, who had some thoughts about why these regulations are necessary. have a listen to her. the government of india exercise its constitutional authority in bringing about a few changes to the existing se already act. there's a lot of data and intelligence that some in use have been indulging in activities against the state. unfortunately, india doesn't have
10:37 pm
a legislation to quote in the activities of the foreign agents. so guess the 1st of all, i wanted to just establish what would be the course for indian governments. and we need to do deeper regulation on, for an investment foreign funding coming into india's engineers. can you give me at least one example neuron, john? i'm going to ask all of, i guess of one example of where to regulation is necessary because there are problems. what are the problems of, i think 1st of all, the regulation has to happen in sector, you know, like mining waddington school, little do those activities that has actually not only, you know, kind of a trips, but it has also been focus a economy so that i
10:38 pm
think that those, those areas actually need to be regulated and government is right actually living in a certain activities that can actually menu it. taken many of those, you know, the damage on that. that's great. all right, so, so i need to change need to be regulated. i mean, do you need to be regulated in your challenge? lack i think as much as everyone in this country needs to be regulated. i wanted to lee by the government through today, just legs and yours are also going to want to relation and of the federation started with the year 976 by the government, with the foreign contribution regulation act. and we have on, i have my and you, i've been registered from the 1982. we had an unblemished regard to a 1000 try when we were suspended. i'm to, we had not a single repetition of having
10:39 pm
a reward that was unfired to all this media. i know, i know the reason why in 2802016 when it was once again that addicted. the reason it had nothing to do with financing, you know, nothing to do with finance management. but did i definitely to do with our human rights reporting on things that day within the country. and this is, you know, not good that to give me a fight before they're done the high court, where they say that i completed the embassies. i'm. they also said that i going to get with the u. s. special up. what i'm trying to do because i have to be in the security council of the united nations. why is it? is it in order to small little and you go to get to do in special up with you and i would match my talk to our boards that we are making. do you any special double? yes. this is the litigation. i didn't, i've heard of it. i don't mean there's just one of it. i'm just looking here at a postal from outside of india. they applied for the renewal of that nice to take
10:40 pm
in from an investment. and they have been turned down that they found this out just recently. so huge organizations, heat, engineers have been impacted. it's going to have you done any reporting that gave you some idea about what the changes were with angie as why india would be so strict about phone investment coming into the country because that's the key issue . the staffing issue so there are, oh, so these of the boards which we have find of regarding f. c. out of the foreign contribution resolution act. it's actually regulates for funding into the country. ah, most of the guy and be an art told by the ministry on record, on the board of about any reason. see, for example, mission of ease of charity. why, if the i was not renewed and the ministry came up with
10:41 pm
a statement that you do some security inputs. now these are very weak terms. if you are blocking the license or registration of an injury which has been working for for decades in a country, you ought to give cogent reasons explaining what it was. security, the reports that you have, phone. so sometimes of these regulations they're also used to how does and years which are critical, not the government on the job express, which is balance please speech. and because not many people would want to depend on court rates on government funding for their well because they want to stay independent. so that is the who knew that this act because it just gives an explanation. it is very, it is, it is, i believe i did on the part of the state and the other ones who can decide
10:42 pm
arbitrarily, which and you'll be function, but generally not. and he will not even get to know the reason i say. so even though what were think about right, what would be the potential reason how many came up with one. but in terms of what the government, a telling you the ministry of home affairs, they're not giving you those examples. on my laptop, i have several people who've been following the stream. following this conversation on twitter, have a look here, henry, i'm going to get each of you and, and, and the data and austin around and to respond to these comments. so cashandra says, this is a good decision by the indian government. some people using the funds receive the purpose of ngos for illegal activities. henry instant reaction to this, don't pause, go ahead. in 2020, what he showed up show costco does not lunch, not twice 3 times that it was really good because then it was only a 180 days of suspension. not a single illegal activity of ours had been pointed out. 2016 when we were
10:43 pm
not allowed to renew, i had a 2 line order that was given to me and ordered it on the basis of the study report, the competent authority does not want to refuses your renewal application. i'll pass it. i haven't seen the push back from you the run down the street for the new one new id here phone and she has a note that to help the people in india, they have to react motives and should not be trusted. b, j. p like government is doing the right thing and we shouldn't be wishing western n g. i was not at all. no, i'm just briefly on this. i think the people who are been doing, you know, this sort of messes in so you know that i think the victim of, you know, the provider base has been, you know, for several years,
10:44 pm
which is basically and you're saying kind of in october and that's not only a i think if you see that, i mean i know the space all over the world and i think you go to us, you will talk to you go to brad, you go to a, you know, many of those countries. when you have back to the and you haven't got to become very commonly and any kind of what and when that comes for even a finding the budget, you know, climate change or promoting, right? so the marginalise is seen basically as some kind of intervention on the left here . so i think i'm not somebody will be sort of mrs. and what exactly is happening in india for last several years? not only with this, i not in the previous comment which in fact and are, you know, this is to make one for me in 2010. we thought, i mean when time expanding the scope of, we know what to declare as illegal or what to declare. something that you know, is
10:45 pm
a political in nature or, you know, a pretense national security. do think actually the small, tiny end user actually dedicated themselves. i can be a national secretary. well, we actually living in india and your mom has been there for you know, what the case actually i don't, i don't work on enrollment on my, you know, a devices and you don't, many of them who makes you know back later on going down into laws like a 2005 was binder by hundreds of in your class didn't use. so i think some of these people are in front of them actually got to know by the propaganda. so i said, i've got one more thought here to share with you and i am just going to see on twitter. again responding to our discussion today, n g o z cannot run a parallel government, they flout laws. busy and norms and for activism on the pretext of social service, they must open themselves up to 4 states, secrete scrutiny, and be accountable. are you seeing any sense of energy as i said,
10:46 pm
a 3000000 operating in india and nice of flouting government rules? as i mentioned earlier, the bonds are very stringent. you have to check a lot of boxes and especially after new amendments were brought in last year. it has become impossible for and used to do any kind of good or even to imagine that they can run it badly. government is just laughable. and most of these comments are mostly part of an organized propaganda. and because there is this fear of the unknown that and jewels will come and jose, well, you know, people with the government. i mean, these are very foolish observations. to be honest, a host of boxes that you have to check for an and you do survive to receive what innovations of government of india has even put water bill,
10:47 pm
not around $101.00 on its watch list. and so it's not easy book or in donors to just send money because every penny that this, then the government gets an alert and every penny is through denies before it's passed on to the end. just so it's not that easy. so as i said, there are a lot of stringent measures in place, so i don't think this will treat, makes any sense. i ok that told that twitter i let me say this with you. this is from the ministry of home affairs. it is live now. so it gives us a sense of what is happening with the ngos who try to file for the foreign contribution regulation at with the new regulations. if you see the blue hail, the aqua marine, those are the n g o z 2 active, the pink pants sold and yos, look how many passengers and then the green diem see sto expired as of today. maybe they couldn't even handle that paperwork. maybe they didn't fall maybe can, can in on time, henry,
10:48 pm
looking at this the latest for ngos who would like to have foreign funding. what does this tell us about the operating climate, the ngos in india today? i do think 2 of the asians i would like to make. the 1st observation is that this and diet propaganda that is going on. let us not forget that this operation started post 2010 amendment to the product relation act. and this was brought in by another government which is today and, and i want to go on to the car for the sake of being very fair to the arguments that we were taught. and i am a lead off the previous government to started. and then the present government in 2016 can do. that's why i don't know why. why do i do in terms of numbers? there? you don't have an idea of ways of looking at this. when each it will be a regulation act. 1976. and i think when did 2010,
10:49 pm
anybody would ask for a new station? i never, there was they were bigger institutions. we had not one do you station by it. and i didn't know became a little more stronger and the complains mechanism became tougher. they decided some institution decided perhaps not to have finally decision to do with what not to have to do station what to do with the way. and therefore, there are many which i did not renew because precisely, they did not want that. and you will have all that it that speaks about the larger number which i, which i mean density. now those we've got to do to be cancelled as of today on, i guess there's another explanation that you can give is with the 2020 amendment that has come, which makes some driving in buffet, which means one of the deals in the country. well, what do you do? well, what do you want? a fact of the country on the issue of education. i mean to look at it in which was
10:50 pm
a displacement. and a good idea of that. you can think of these and you can only see funds directly from abroad and they don't have sources. they don't need it and then you don't, you want ok. and then for the good, if you had a to be anyways, cancer, so large numbers remain guns and because of the sub blinding coming to a loss, and that is something which is very, very difficult for the and you're going to survive because you're going to have people only doing what people are not going to do or the governance of it. people have done usually to work into areas of their competence. i'm usually does not section of that work is 13, and i just made it difficult for people to continue for daily distinction. no one can. i want to put those teeth and you chances, clovis, new champions watching the program right now? what is the level of awareness and interest from india is about these regulations. what is the impact on everyday life? the many people in the country, i saw a headline about the news, the missionaries,
10:51 pm
a charity organization set up my mother, theresa. they are now rationing the food that they're giving out because of the limitation on the funding that they have. they can't take funding from overseas. right now. the indians know about this and what's the impact? thank you. bye. that's a good question. i think i already did, i don't really know what's happening to this space and how many of those, you know, up top, but especially those to roll more than, you know, those are back to the binding work for having, you know, in many ways actually facing you know the front of the ministry. so i'm saying look at the mission of charity. it is actually one of the oldest organization and has done fine work. actually. i think almost a 1718 states. it worked actually for the,
10:52 pm
for the most or did you take people who really do not call within the states, you know, so in a sense, actually by targeting the sort of use what actually seen as actually a lot of symbolic value for the society. you actually get kind of a chilling effect for many smaller and use and you're those what actually doing a little bit that is number one. number 2 is i think a lot of activities, especially those activities that really do not come on. i don't know the state in many cases actually states that have the capacity to reach out to those sections of the source. a d n a place where many of these induce activity to content themselves. i think those what's actually going to heavily suffer, i don't think, i mean, i did plan in any way. you know, it can actually really
10:53 pm
a binding work of those in june. and i don't actually just want to share my laptop this news from, from outside when they realized that they would be able to renew their license to see foreign funding. they say that that humanitarian work will be severely impacted and share with you another thoughts as to why this is happening in india right now. chadwick says this is a serious sign of a dictator. it's heartless, disregarding the many people benefiting from the organizations. and then on video, we got this coming from rashid. here is a sheet. if it means destroying civil society, or economy of india or the prestige or soft or india, the cancellation fee, or is i've done a $1000000.00 or indian medical association or even support to leprosy work. so be, it seems to be the current energy and we,
10:54 pm
you know, to, well, what it means to be regulated so that your work is impacted. your child to work is impacting. what does the ministry of home affairs need to do to adjust their approach to foreign funding? coming in to india's. the question is that that is discrimination in the manner in which foreign investment in india is being done. discrimination is between the hope this is approached and also it was id the approach. and i think this discrimination has to stop. the business is managed by the finance ministry, whereas the civil society is managed by the whole ministry. and now this is a major discrimination. the procedures are done followed for prevention, you're going to use those words for business. have a procedure, whether it is income tax, whether it is service, that's what it would do at any does i didn't actually she dental procedures that
10:55 pm
are follow when i was forced to which was id under the ministry of one of the discrimination is that the 1st thing that have done today, and they don't read the 1st thing that is done the suspension. and the best example that i can give is the common but human rights initiative, which has been working on issues of what i see, which i've been working on issues, all right, to inflammation which i've been working on. issues of prisons, not working on their own, but working with the police themselves, working with the prison authorities themselves, working with the legal authorities themselves. and they haven't stopped. what have they done? what have they done? which is wrong? if they're working, i think you have to and one being i said, what have they done suspension. we don't notice and here in court street, so this discrimination of what hope business is approached and i was going to say to you, the broad is the fundamental question. that is, we are not an engine nation. i don't destroy it. i, he, you know, and,
10:56 pm
and guy had yes, and i think i, i agree with, you know, in terms of why the government is laid open to, for an investment in the business sector. and it goes to easing all kind of sticks on analyzing every, you know, sort of log like rectifying investment. but i didn't get so far in funding for the 8 years which actually are doing binding work. and you know, they're filling the space, you know, which the state is not able to meet off, that work actually is being listed. another interesting diamond to me is that you know, the funding funding of, you know, want to go buy these, you know, which is happening to a, you know, once the government doesn't have any problem, does open the floodgates point one and money to ploy global because system and it was actually due to the national security and you were actually buying a bunch of that's the because i that we are,
10:57 pm
we are actually to do it with this india last whether they go to go ahead, i can add some. yeah. so this is also again, so for a bureaucratic, over each of the just did a story. it went on our website a few hours back that the f, c, r a, the distractions of not only missionaries of charity but famous hindu temple. but the, the last time which is a point in a single sentence, and then i will thank you and take a bye take to get yet even even law are not only christian organizations, even lot of in boot and both have laws that itsyana just ration. so it is clearly a case of bureaucratic overreach and oh, there should be clear guidelines and clear of explanation by the government on why they're of the district and has a j test. thanking the ran, dana, russia, you and henry, we really appreciate you as well. so much more to talk about,
10:58 pm
but for now i'm going to wrap up today show on youtube. thanks for your comments. i think next time take care. ah ah. january and i just, i hear we look back on us president joe biden supposed you in office 12 months on from the capital building by be part of the street. enjoy him out. social media community s, sierra leone recovery from civil war continues. we mock 2 decades since the end of one of africa's most brutal complex, the bottom line,
