Propagandist Rana Ayyub, who is known for propagating Islamist causes and spewing venom against India, stopped a fundraiser she was running on fundraiser website Ketto after multiple irregularities were reported, including FCRA violations.
Recently she was running a fundraiser in the name of migrant workers who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The irregularities came to light when a Twitter user with the handle @parixit111 posted that the donation receipt carried a message that the donations were not exempted under 80G.
Ayyub was receiving the money in her personal account.
In the campaign, there was no mention of any NGO.
She also received donations from abroad which is prohibited by the law. Only NGOs which are registered under Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 2010, can receive foreign donations.
On two earlier occasions too, Ayyub has raised money.
There was no audit report of how much was received and how the money was spent.
After these irregularities were reported, she ended the campaign and also said she would return the money received.
She also said that Ketto account was used for raising the money but she didn’t reveal how she withdrew the money.
