Greenpeace banned in India

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government has cancelled Greenpeace’s licence to operate in the country, citing financial fraud and falsification of data.

The environmental group has denied wrongdoing and said the closure is a an attempt to silence dissent.

Last year, Modi’s government withdrew permission for Greenpeace to receive foreign funding, saying the money was being used to block industrial projects.
