Srinagar, Sep 28: Home ministry has banned Popular Front of India (PFI) and its affiliates for a period of five years. 

The ministry declared PFI, its associates as an unlawful association with immediate effect for a period of five years.

The Ministry said the PFI and its associates and affiliates including Rehab India Foundation, Campus Front of India, All India Imams Council, National Confederation of Human Rights Organization, National Women’s Front, Junior Front, Empower India Foundation, and Rehab Foundation, Kerala have “been involved in the violent terrorist activities with an intent to create a reign of terror in the country”.

“The government is of the opinion that if there is no immediate curb of unlawful activities of the PFI and related fronts, they will use this opportunity to continue its subversive activities thereby disturbing public order and undermining the constitutional setup of the country,” the govt said, adding, that they will encourage and enforce terror-based regressive regimes and continue propagating anti-national sentiments and radicalize a particular section of society with the intention to create disaffection against the country.

So, it is necessary to declare the PFI and its associates, affiliates, and fronts as unlawful association with immediate effect, the ministry said.
