Jharkhand Christian NGOs in the dock: Police raids 88 and reveal Rs 250 crore spent on forced conversion

Days after the Missionary of Charity ‘baby-on sale’ scandal was brought to light creating much of a turbulence, the Jharkhand police swooped down on 88 Christian missionary-operated non-governmental organizations (NGOs), on grievous charges of misusing foreign funds for forceful religious conversion of tribals and political subversion, as exclusively reported by MyNation.

As confirmed by the Jharkhand police as many as 33 NGO’s have already been raided and rest of the task would be completed soon. These NGOs have been reported to have received in excess of Rs 250 crore funding between 2013 and 2016 under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA).

A ‘CID report’ accessed by MyNation, makes grave charges against the Christian Missionary operated NGOs’ running ‘hospitals, schools, shelter homes’ saying that these organizations “train tribal women as nurses and sends them abroad. They also pressurize them to convert to Christianity.” It also mentions that many of these institutions were indulging in political subversion and anti-State activities. “Many of these institutions, especially the missionary NGOs, misuse funds received under FCRA to foment anti-State rallies and protests,” the report noted.

Mostly all of these organizations have received funds running in crores, with the top 11 receiving funds between Rs 7.5 crore and Rs 39 crore. Name of few with the annual break-up of funds received from 2013-2016 are listed below:

Reportedly, the CID has been collecting information regarding these nefarious activities conducted within the NGOs’ for a long time now and has managed to complete the mammoth task almost a month ago, soon after which the Jharkhand police took prompt action, digging out all the filth these so-called prestigious organisations have been cloaking.
