They were also doing anti national activities by provoking software engineers of IBM on things like Hyper Nationalism and demanding donations for support of separatists of Kashmir exposed by our editor with pics of the event.
Director of Amnesty International India is a known anti national and his hate for majority Hindus and India is allegedly proved many times.
Lastly, Amnesty had endorsed the “Bharat ke Tukde Tukde” JNU Gang and did a event in their Bangalore campus advocating separatism. They were ripped apart by Arnab in his show.
