Newly sworn-in Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma called for a ban on Amnesty international organization amid the widespread Pegasus Controversy in the nation. 

The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) CM accused Amnesty International of defaming the image of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He asked the Central government to ban Amnesty international organization from operating in India. 

According to CM Himanta Sarma, Amnesty International, which is known in the world for its central focus on human rights, is operating in India to destabilize the Democratic morals of our nation. He alleged that the organization has a history of Conspirating against India’s democracy and leadership. 

He said that he strongly condemns such conspiracy by Amnesty International and demands for a ban on its operation in India which is working to ‘defame and harm’ India. 

Sarma added that Amnesty encourages left-wing terrorism and defames India and our Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The basic aim of such defamation is “to create dissatisfaction among the Indian society.”

Last year Amnesty International alleged that the Indian government has frozen the bank account of its Indian branch. The Indian government and Amnesty International are in a tiff with each other. Indian government alleged that Amnesty never registered under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA). 

Even the Enforcement Directorate (ED), the central agency in February probed in the case of money laundering. The international organization has linked all these actions of harassment to its reports which were critical of Indian PM Modi. 

Now, the recent crackdown comes because of the digital forensics that Amnesty International conducted. The Pegasus Spyware controversy has sparked a political storm in the nation. Phone numbers of prominent leaders like Rahul Gandhi, Prahlad Patel, and Election strategist Prashant Kishor were found in the database leaked.
