Less than one year since Greenpeace was caught permanently desecrating the Nazca Lines in Peru while conducting a publicity stunt during a UN conference, the online Hamburg-based Abendblatt here now reports that the famously radical environmental organization is caught up in another scandal, this one India.
The media reports that India has shut down Greenpeace operations in the country, alleging the that the environmental group made up data and committed financial fraud. The Abendblatt here tells its readers: The government nder Minister President Nerendra Modi accuses the organization of financial fraud and falsifying data. The following is a Youtube video in German:
The Abendblatt writes that this is not the first time the country has clashed with Greenpeace. Prime Minister Modi earlier had criticised the the organization of “putting the brakes on the economic development of the country.”
English-language India-based website NDTV here writes:
Under the latest order issued by authorities in Tamil Nadu where Greenpeace is registered, the government said it had found that the organisation had violated the provisions of law by engaging in fraudulent dealings.
Greenpeace denied any wrongdoing and said the closure was a ‘clumsy tactic’ to silence dissent.”

Sorry, but do you really like that? What India is doing is against everything that a modern world stands for.
Keep on being a troll SOD. India is a democracy that wants to raise the living standard of its people. Liers and fraudsters who want to keep others poor while enjoying the goodlife for themselves need to be jailed.

“Sorry, but do you really like that? What India is doing is against everything that a modern world stands for.”
Greenpeace has been pretty lame lastly – actually, since their psychopath dictator died.
No Sod, India has a right to development and national sovereignty. This will help to bring about true freedom. Greenpeace and other parasite NGO groups are an obvious threat to this. As is often the case with these sorts of groups, Greenpeace are part of the problem and not the solution.

Sod, but do you really like that, India is doing what every body in the world believes in and wants, cheap power, jobs, stability which is the exact opposite of what Greenpeace actions, wants and believes in. They should not have charity status in any country in any circumstances.
Well, like Russia India is not standing for the behaviour of Greenpeace.
“What India is doing is against everything that a modern world stands for.”
What makes you think that “everything that a modern world stands for” is actually the best for the well being of mankind?
Has not the stands the ‘past world’ took proved to be greatly beneficial to the well being of mankind?
Why do you feel we should not continue with such quests?
So, sod, in your modern world, financial fraud and falsification of data is acceptable?!?
Oh.. never mind.
“So, sod, in your modern world, financial fraud and falsification of data is acceptable?!?”
Where are your proofs of the allegations?
Greenpeace is publishing all relevant documents, India does not.
Instead India has punished 9000 NGOs in 2014. Most likely all of them are corrupt?
I’d say the conflict stems from a clash of very different priorities. Greenpeace (the guest) is solely interested in protecting nature using junk science, while the Indian government (to host) is obligated and focused on pulling the masses out of grinding poverty. By coming across as bossy, know-it-all and totally closed-minded, Greenpeace is behaving like a very bad and arrogant guest. It’s not their country and they have to learn to accept that their view has to be weighed while considering the other more pressing issues.
I disagree. For a start, greenpeace india is not a “guest” in any sort of way. I am also against banning dissenting voices.
“their view has to be weighed while considering the other more pressing issues.”
I am curious: How do you weight those 100000 coal deaths?
India says GP is used fraudulent data and financial fraud. And: SA writes: “MAY cause 100,000 deaths”. Sod, but I understand your readiness to jump on any figure that suits your view. We do know that the lack of power in third world countries leads to millions of premature deaths. Little wonder hundreds of these plants are planned.
Note the weasel word in Sod’s citation. The use of the word ‘may’. Has this character heard of fabric filters and precipitators? What about the deaths that would occur in the absence of much needed economic development and in the high quality of power provided by coal that advancing countries so desperately need?
My apologies Pierre. You beat me to it! 🙂 I think the message we should all take from India’s handling of Greenpeace is that regardless of corruption, these groups have acted against the interests of developing nations, in line with the green movements misanthropic agenda.
“Instead India has punished 9000 NGOs in 2014. Most likely all of them are corrupt?”
India is part of the BRICS – and most NGO’s are US Empire covert operations. I’d put’em all in the hole as well.
