After multiple complaints, Union Home Ministry (MHA) suspended the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) License of Christian organization named Harvest India. The MHA has taken a decision after investigating multiple violations of the FCRA Act by the organization.
The Commune reported that Harvest India had established more than 1500 ‘community centres’ all over the country for proselytizing purposes. In addition to this, there are over 1500 to 2000 pastors working in the organization as well as in various other places undercover.
The report further claimed that Harvest India has not shown any records of the utilization of FCRA funds for paying the pastors or the maintenance of churches. Harvest India had received crores of amounts from Foreign Church organizations for Christian religious activities, preacher and priest training programs and other Christian religious functions.
