Congress senior leader of P Chidambaram on Wednesday alleged that after Muslims, now the new target of the Hindutva brigade is Christians. He said this citing the government’s refusal to renew the FCRA registration of the Missionaries of Charity. Chidambaram, Congress’s senior election observer for Goa, also claimed that the mainstream media removed the news of the Home Ministry’s action relating to the Missionaries of Charity (MOC) from its pages. He said it was “sad and shameful”.
“The rejection of renewal of Missionaries of Charity (MOC) is a direct attack on NGOs doing public service for the ‘poor and underprivileged’ sections of India,” he said on Twitter.
