Subject: Repersantation on freezing of FCRA Account of INSAF

To                                                                                                                   Date:-  7 May 2013
Mr. Sushil Kumar Shinde,
Home Minister, GoI – New Delhi

Subject:- Denunciation and demanding immediate withdrawal of order of Home Ministry to freeze the FCRA account of Indian Social Action Forum (INSAF) and enquiry there on.
Respected Sir,
Ministry of Home affairs has issued order to freeze the FCRA bank accounts of Indian Social Action Forum (INSAF) Katwaria Sarai, New Delhi on 30th of April 2012 and further ordered enquiry on 2 May 2013. Director of the GoI, an official in the Home Ministry, Mr. A.K.Sinha communicated to INSAF office in Katwaria Sarai, New Delhi that INSAF's activities are prejudicial and against public interest and hence the bank account has been frozen instantly. In case INSAF needs to spend its fund, it has to take prior permission from the Home Ministry. The action has been taken under Section 13 of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act 2010 suspending the permanent registration of the association for 180 days in public interest as has been claimed.
INSAF was formed after the demolition of Babri Mosque to combat communalism, defend democracy, particularly to promote and defend the interest of the people and resist globalization.
As it is true that INSAF have challenged the new Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act 2010 in the Supreme Court and the new rules formulated by the Home Ministry in which all democratic action such as rallies, demonstrations, protests etc. are prohibited.  This might be the reason to act so by the Home ministry.
We live in a democratic country governed by constitution which provides us rights to oppose, gather and resist defending our rights with in constitutional framework.  It seems derogatory act of Ministry to curb the right to freedom.
As we know that INSAF is a forum which always have been defending democratic rights of deprive and common men, combating communal design and strengthening secular spirit of the nation.
Hence we oppose this prejudice action of your Ministry and demand immediate withdrawal of this order in the interest of common people and secularism.
