Mumbai: In a notification, the government said that Popular Front of India (PFI) and its affiliate organisations or fronts have been declared “unlawful association” with immediate effect under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). The outfit has also been banned for the next five years.

The decision comes hours after over 150 people linked to the PFI were arrested in a massive crackdown across the country.

Bengaluru, Delhi and Assam where the maximum number of people were detained, there were also a large number of arrests. The NIA and the Enforcement Directorate had arrested over 106 PFI members earlier this week.

BJP national general secretary Arun Singh said, “Terrorist incidents (by PFI) happened in many states, broke the country and spread violence. That’s why we take this step (by central government outlawing PFI and its allies for 5 years)..”

The illegal organizations include – Rehab India Foundation (RIF), Campus Front of India (CFI), All India Imam Council (AIIC), National Confederation of Human Rights Organization (NCHRO), National Women’s Front, Junior Front, Empower India Foundation and Rehab Foundation, Kerala.

Legitimizing the move against the association, Association Pastor Ajay Mishra Teni said that the Middle has gotten dubious data against PFI.

“We have dubious data against PFI. Attacks were directed based on inputs we got. Certain individuals were captured as well. The strikes are in progress, searches will occur according to the data we will get further,” he said, news office ANI cited.

As policing led a progression of strikes against the PFI units, Segment 144 was forced in Delhi and prohibitory orders were given in various areas. PFI was sent off in 2006 in Kerala subsequent to blending three associations that were shaped after the Babri Masjid destruction in 1992 – the Public Improvement Front of Kerala, Karnataka Gathering for Poise and Manitha Neethi Pasari of Tamil Nadu.

The assaults have been led at private and official premises of PFI authorities for “subsidizing illegal intimidation, coordinating instructional courses and radicalizing individuals to join banished associations”.
