Unfeeling U.S. Agencies Confiscate Children from Indian Parents

In the past year or so, this blog has posted many sad stories coming out of Europe, Norway in particular, about the abuse many families have received by those whose job it is to help struggling families. It is a great tragedy of our times. I know that similar problems in America have been mentioned occasionally but perhaps not enough.

Many U.S. citizens have written on the topic but a credible Human Rights Activist from India is also voicing concerns.

An article with the above title can be found HERE in the Sunday Guardian Live with the subtitle:

“Legal experts, doctors, and investigative journalists alleged that the US child protection agencies were biased and used flawed techniques to detect abuse.”

A portion of the article…

“Suranya Aiyar, a New-Delhi based lawyer, who has been providing counsel and aid to Indian families in the US, Norway and other countries to help them get back their confiscated children, recently submitted a “Report on Indian and India-Origin Children Confiscated by the United States Child Protection Agencies” to the Ministry of External Affairs. Based on her extensive case study of 12 Indian families, who were falsely accused of child abuse, her report sheds light on the US agencies’ many biases and flawed methodology. The report wants a travel advisory to be issued to young Indian families moving to the US of possible confiscation of their children as, in most cases, the victim families are not aware of what might goad the child protection agencies to initiate action against them.”

I have watched Suranya’s tireless attempt at publicizing cases like the ones mentioned in the article and I so appreciate her ability to bring interest to the subject through articles and interviews in the news media and in social media.

This is the first in a series of Sunday Guardian Live articles which I will post here as they are published.

Suranya made an announcement this week on Facebook:

“Hello folks! I am proud to announce that my website http://www.saveyourchildren.in is launched! Also, from tomorrow, The Sunday Guardian will run a series in collaboration with me called “Global Child Rights, And Wrongs”. It will have essays from experts on this issue around the world. Thank you to all who supported my work in this area. I could *not* have done it without you! Enjoy this video – which sums it all up!”

The new site was very impressive in my first review. The SAVE YOUR CHILDREN website will be a great resource in many ways.

I was not surprised by Suranya’s announcement. Professor Marianne H. Skanland, who needs no introduction to readers here, kindly let me know of Suranya’s plans. More importantly, Marianne has published a very interesting GROUP OF LINKS to:

“Articles in the internet edition of the Chicago Tribune around 15 years ago reported on the federal government of the USA in 1997 pressing for increased adoption of foster children. Eager compliance from social agencies may also have increased the taking of children into care.”

GROUP OF LINKS

Sadly, the same psychobabble that happens in Norway does occur in the U.S. The main difference at this point seems to be that American due process (fair treatment through the normal judicial system, especially as a citizen’s entitlement) seems less corrupt.

Norwegian CPS Continues to Destroy Families, Takes Indian Child

December 31, 2016

A prayer for the New Year, that Baby Aryan and others like him are returned to their loving families in 2017.

Before the reblog of the Headlined story above, I would like to publish an email that I recently received. My name and the name of this blog has been added to the signed letter below. If you would like your name included in this appeal to the External Affairs Minister of India, just let me know in the comment section and I will forward your name to Suranya Aiyar who is very active in trying to help this family.

To:

Her Excellency, Mrs Sushma Swaraj
External Affairs Minister of India

Subject: Norwegians and International Activists join Indians in urging Indian
Government to save Indian child in Norway

Dear Madam,

We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Norway, relatives of victims in Norway and activists from around the world, are writing to express our support for your intervention in the matter of the 5-year-old only child of Anil Kumar and Gurvinderjit Kaur who has been snatched by Barnevernet in Oslo, Norway last week.

Barnevernet, the Norwegian child protection authority has for many years been wrongly taking children from loving parents in Norway. The reasons are incompetence, overbearing officials, lack of transparency, inadequate
judicial oversight,and, in cases involving cultural and religious minorities, prejudice andracism.

Some of us have ourselves been victims of Barnevernet. We have been campaigning against Norway’s cruel child protection regime for years and this year alone there have been protests every month against Barnevernet attended by hundreds in cities around Norway. Supporting protests have been held in many countries around the world, including the United States of America, Russia, Australia, Brazil, Romania, Czechia,Lithuania and India.
We appreciate India’s earlier efforts in saving Indian children from Barnevernet and highlighting the human rights abuses of Barnevernet in Norway. We urge you to spare no effort in enabling the child of Anil Kumar and Gurvinderjit Kaur to be reunited with his family in Norway or repatriated to India where he can be brought up by his extended family in the country and culture of his origin, and to which he has been used since birth. This is his right under both Norwegian law and international law.

Signed…

The Norwegian government and their CPS (Barnevernet) have not reformed their ways as was hoped after the international embarrassment they suffered in the wake of snatching the five Bodnariu children.

Barnevernet is back on the international scene because they secretly removed Aryan, an Indian boy (mother Indian citizen) while he was in school for alledged slapping by the parents. Same tactic was used in the Bodnariu case. No warning, no court order, no social intervention or “help,” only the nuclear option. This is how Barnevernet operates.

Well, the parents are now crying out for international support and they have been featured on English-language CNN in India. Delight in Truth friend, attorney Suranya Aiyar was featured on the program with strong and passionate arguments against Barnevernet.

Looks like we are on the verge of another international scandal, and Norway and Barnevernet victims need it!  Maybe the shame will reach an unbearable…
