    > NEW DELHI – Prominent Indian-origin author and journalist Aatish Taseer has been stripped of his Overseas Citizenship of India status, said the Indian government on Thursday.

    > The move has prompted a controversy because of suggestions that the decision is linked to an article Mr Taseer wrote for Time in May this year which was highly critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    > At the peak of the general elections in May this year, Mr Taseer, known for his views against Hindu fundamentalism, had authored an article for Time that questioned if India can "Endure another five years of a Modi government".
