owing to the group’s pro-abortion stance… NGO-Monitor noted in 2008 the campaigners received a four-year grant from the British government’s Department for International Development (DFID in excess 3 million including more than 840000 in 2011 alone… Amnesty has also received funds from the European Commission as well as from the government of Netherlands the US and Norway In 2009 NGO-Monitor cites Amnesty received 25 million (approximately 1 percent of its donations) from government entities The British government was the third largest donor (at 800000) Amnesty also received government funding in 2008 (1million) 2007 (1 million) and 2006 (2 million) There’s just no other way of saying this: we slept our political class fought internally our governments became alphabet soups of warring political factions even as the likes of Amnesty International made slow steady but sure inroads The report also mentions the name of Amnesty International’s Secretary-General Salil Shetty who “earns nearly 200000 ($305000) a year” Salil Shetty is the son of the Bengaluru-based VT Rajashekhar publisher of the notorious journal Dalit Voice which Arun Shourie characterized as a “venomous rag” And that brings us to the question of conflicts of interests which are aplenty and the nexus deadly to say the least Here are a few names: Aakar Patel currently India head of Amnesty International has a lengthy record of baiting Prime Minister Narendra Modi in racist language and generally building a casteist narrative of Hindu society His wife Tushita Aakar Patel is/was the political secretary of disgraced business tycoon Vijay Mallya whose foray in the media business is shown by his connection to NDTV Salil Shetty was previously Chief Executive of ActionAid and Director United Nations Millennium Campaign Sonia Gandhi’s confidant Harsh Mander had once been the head of ActionAid Suzanne Nossel Executive Director of Amnesty International USA was drawn directly from the US State Department again utterly contradicting Amnesty’s claims of being "independent" of governments and corporate interests George Macfarlane formerly with Greenpeace International and Oxfam Minar Pimple Senior Director of Global Operations at Amnesty International was Regional Director of the United Nations Millennium Campaign and Oxfam India Divya Iyer now Research Manager at Amnesty International India was with NDTV AajTak and CNN-IBN Carolyn Hardy now a co-opted member of Amnesty was with United Nations and UNICEF Anantapadmanabhan now Executive Director at Amnesty International India was formerly Executive Director Greenpeace India I’m sure one can uncover more such relationships in this complex web of the NGO-Human Rights-Foreign Governments-Church universe but the worrying aspect is their former and present connections to international bodies like the UN and the US State Department And so is it any surprise that when the Modi government showed the door to Greenpeace India one of the first and most vocal critics was Amnesty Friends with Jihadis Even if we grant that Amnesty International is focused on the noble tasks in the Human Rights sphere we need to but ask a fundamental question: what is its record in adhering to the Indian national interest The evident answer: terrible Amnesty International has consistently deepened fissures in the Indian society by escalating internal fault-lines using various devices one of which is manufacturing and disseminating atrocity literature About a year ago Amnesty published a scurrilous petition about the rape of two Dalit girls in Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat region which was supposedly ordered by the village’s Khap panchayat The petition generated more than 500000 signatures but the truth was revealed a few days later by this Reuters report: "…members of the village council in the Baghpat region of northern India have told Reuters they passed no such order Family members of the two sisters also told Reuters they are unsure if the ruling was made And local police deny any such directive was given" But then Amnesty’s purpose had been served: the phony petition will be another notch in Amnesty’s narrative of widespread human rights abuses that continue to occur in India Not to be left behind Amnesty too had a hand in supporting the anti-Kudankulam protests which had the covert backing of Hillary Clinton Now sample this “overview” to India on Amnesty International’s India web page: "Authorities clamped down on civil society organizations critical of official policies and increased restrictions on foreign funding Religious tensions intensified and gender- and caste-based discrimination and violence remained pervasive Censorship and attacks on freedom of expression by hardline Hindu groups grew Scores of artists writers and scientists returned national honours in protest against what they said was a climate of growing intolerance… The criminal justice system remained flawed violating fair trial rights and failing to ensure justice for abuses Extrajudicial executions and torture and other ill-treatment persisted" Gives the picture of a horrible tyranny right And the instances it gives to back up all these claims are supplied precisely by the local award wapsi brigade the intolerance bogey and the rest Never mind the fact that India allows Amnesty freedom enough to actually write all this Had Amnesty’s claims been true it would’ve received the treatment that Lee Kuan Yew gave it in the past Indeed is it narratives like this that prompts US politicians like Towns to label India as a “brutal tyranny” on the floor of the House If this is on the one side the other side is more worrying We can begin with the name of Gita Sahgal whose statement slamming Amnesty was reported by Firstpost This former Amnesty International employee was suspended in 2010 by the organization Christopher Hitchens narrates what happened in Slate: Amnesty International has just suspended one of its senior officers a woman named Gita Sahgal who until recently headed the organization’s "gender unit" It’s fairly easy to summarize her concern in her own words "To be appearing on platforms with Britain’s most famous supporter of the Taliban whom we treat as a human rights defender" she wrote "is a gross error of judgment" One might think that to be an uncontroversial statement but it led to her immediate suspension The most famous supporter of Taliban was Moazzem Begg who was detained at Guantanamo Bay in the wake of 9/11 He’s friends with militant groups like Hizb-ut Tahrir and extremists like Abu Hamza And Amnesty International lends its support to him And how A 2014 Wall Street Journal article on Amnesty says: is "jihad in self-defence. which has been demanding the
