Indian charity attacks Lindsay over claims she helped save 40 lives

Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan has been attacked by an Indian charity after she claimed she saved the lives of 40 children on the first day of her visit to the sub-continent.


London, Dec 12 : Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan has been attacked by an Indian charity after she claimed she saved the lives of 40 children on the first day of her visit to the sub-continent.

According to the charity, which organized the raid, Lohan was not in India while the raid was on, reports The Telegraph.

The Mean Girls star visited India to make a BBC documentary about child trafficking.

And, after reaching the destination, she claimed to have had rescued 40 child labourers in New Delhi in just one day.

However, the charity blasted the actress, insisting neither Lohan, 23, nor the BBC, were present during the raid.

In a series of posts on Twitter, Lohan said: "Over 40 children saved so far...... Within one day's work...... This is what life is about..... Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!"

She later added: "Focusing on celebrities and lies is so disconcerting, when we can be changing the world one child at a time.... hope everyone can see that."

A leading social activist and lawyer, known only as Bhuwan, of the campaign group Bachpan Bachao Andolan, blasted her, saying: "She was not even in the country when this raid happened.

"We'll be complaining to the BBC and talking to our lawyers ... Would Lohan know where these workshops are?"

Ruchira Gupta, an anti-trafficking campaigner, said: "If celebrities do it to get publicity then they are trivialising child-trafficking."

A BBC spokesman said: "Lindsay Lohan has just completed filming in India for a BBC Three project on child trafficking. We would like to stress that she did not say she was present at the raid, this is a misinterpretation. She was merely referring to a raid that happened connected to child trafficking - the subject of the programme.

"It is not uncommon for well known faces to be involved in current affairs programmes and often helps engage younger audiences with subjects they don't traditionally go to such as international affairs. The final documentary will have all the hallmarks of BBC content - and will be high quality, informative and engaging."
