Lindsay Lohan's Child Saving Claims Refuted

(Submitted News) A non-governmental organization (NGO) in India, which works to eradicate child labor, has reportedly contradicted Hollywood diva Lindsay Lohan's (Mean Girls) claim of saving 40 children.

She was not even in India when raid to save the children happened, this NGO reportedly said. It reportedly rescued 50 trafficked children from India's capital Delhi on December eight.

Lohan's 'tweet�"Over 40 Children saved so far...... Within one day's work...... This is what life is about..... Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!"�which was later removed, made headlines worldwide. Other sensational 'tweets' she Posted while in India which are now missing, include: ""traffiking is a big issue here�", "Keep telling people about what's going on in all 2nd and 3rd world countries�"

Lohan reportedly arrived in India on Wednesday as a part of BBC Three project on child trafficking.

Acclaimed Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, criticized Lohan for making sensational statements without giving any specifics which later mysteriously disappeared.

Zed, who is chairperson of Indo-American Leadership Confederation, said that it was wonderful that Lohan was taking up what appeared to be a noble cause as long as she performed it as selfless service and did it without expecting any personal reward or hidden agenda. Quoting from ancient Sanskrit scripture Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord), Zed suggested Lohan to have self-discipline as those who were self-conquered lived in peace.

According to reports, during her India trip, Lohan visited Sunderbans (West Bengal); her eyes became tearful and she sobbed while visiting a trafficking victims home in Narendrapur and she promised inmates to send back gifts; visited children rehabilitation center in Delhi area; was spotted wearing a bindi (small round vermillion mark on forehead); stayed in Taj Bengal (luxury hotel in downtown Kolkata); had a heated debate with her security guard about politics; and went around mostly unnoticed. She reportedly had a frugal dinner and a massage therapist was kept handy for her in Kolkata.

A BBC spokesman reportedly said: "Lindsay Lohan has just completed filming in India for a BBC Three project on child trafficking". BBC claims to make this documentary of high quality, informative and engaging and was reportedly using "well known faces" to engage younger audiences with subjects they don't usually relish.

MTV Award winner American actress-singer-model Lindsay Dee Lohan, 23, who has topped Maxim's "Hot 100", was reportedly excited about this charity project and wanted to "make the difference".
