Police ask Union home ministry to cancel 90 NGO licences

Tamil Nadu police have recommended the Union home department to cancel the licences of more than 90 non-governmental organizations functioning in the state. A senior police officer confirmed that a letter to this effect has been sent through the state home department. NGOs functioning in India should renew their licences once in five years. A recent amendment to the rules has brought NGOs under the scanner of the police department during the licencing process. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chennai/Police-ask-Union-home-ministry-to-cancel-90-NGO-licences/articleshow/14790851.cms?

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
