Sandeep Pandey Vs. Ford Foundation

LUCKNOW, NOVEMBER 29: For these 11 theatre actors from Pakistan, the show has ended even before it began. Invited by an NGO — the Women’s Initiative for Peace in South Asia (WIPSA) — to stage plays across the country, the Pakistani troupe was allegedly told to pack their bags because their production, Zikr-e-Nashunida (Discussing the Unheeded), expressed anti-US sentiments.

Noted social activist and Magsayasay award winner Sandeep Pandey has also expressed outrage at the treatment meted out the group.

"All this has been done because the NGO (WIPSA) is financially supported by the Ford Foundation, an American organisation"

Note: Ford Foundation had snubbed the communist movement in India during Cold War. They still fund various activists againts communists and against communism.
