Central Government bans PFI and associates for 5 years, Congress MP asks why not RSS

Many BJP leaders have celebrated and welcomed the step taken by the central government as Delhi BJP leader, Kapil Mishra, came forward and wrote on his Twitter that banning PFI is a pivotal step to stop Islamic Jihad.

The central government on Tuesday night announced a ban of 5-years on the Popular Front of India (PFI) and its affiliated organizations. The ban comes to light after a nationwide crackdown on the PFI and its associated by the investigative agencies which was carried out in the span of 2 weeks and resulted in 247 arrests so far.

The Central government in their declaration informed that PFI and its associates have been banned under the Unlawful Activities (prevention) act (UAPA). The center also cited that the political organization has been linked with the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), Jamat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), and the Islamic State (ISIS).

The Home Ministry in their issued statement added that the PFI has been pursuing a secret agenda to radicalize a sect of the society and added that the organization and its affiliates have the potential to disturb the peace and communal harmony by jeopardizing the integrity, sovereignty, and security of the country.

Throughout the Nationwide raids on PFI and its affiliates, in a collaborative effort by the NIA and ED and the administration were able to cover 15 states which led to 100 arrests on 22 September. Whereas, in the second round, 27 of September, the toll of arrests tallied up to 247 arrests according to the reports.

The affiliated organizations which are banned for 5 years include Rehab India Foundation (RIF), Campus Front of India (CF), All India Imams Council (AIIC), National Confederation of Human Rights Organisation (NCHRO), National Women’s Front, Junior Front, Empower India Foundation and Rehab Foundation, Kerala.

The decision to ban the organization and its affiliates was considered based on the investigative agency’s reports. The ban was also implemented after considering the recommendations from three states, Karnataka, Gujarat, and Uttar Pradesh.

Many BJP leaders have celebrated and welcomed the step taken by the central government as Delhi BJP leader, Kapil Mishra, came forward and wrote on his Twitter that banning PFI is a pivotal step to stop Islamic Jihad.

However, Congress party’s MP Kodikunnil Suresh scrutinized the center’s ban on PFI and added that it is not the solution and further remarked that the Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh is also a counterpart to the threat of harmony as the RSS is also spreading Hindu communalism throughout the country. Why is RSS not being subjected to such bans asked Congress leader.

AU Protest

Amid the ongoing protests against 400% fee hike in Allahabad University, a group of students on Tuesday attempted to take Bhu Samadhi as policemen jostle to break the protest, which is continued in the university for the last two weeks.

A video of student protesters’ tussle with police officials is doing rounds on social media. In the video, the police officials can see attempting to arrest a protester while the student protesters resisting against the police action.

This came a day after a group of students locked the university gate to save student protesters from police crackdown, forcing many students to return without attending classes. Meanwhile, the police broke the lock put up by the students at the university gate.

On the same day, former UP cadre IPS officer Amitabh Thakur also extended his support to the Allahabad University students protesting against the 400% fee hike, calling the move unfair and undemocratic.

The students of Allahabad University have been protesting against the 400% hike in their fees for the past three weeks.

Expressing his disappointment over the police crackdown on protesting students, Thakur on Monday said 400% hike is not only undemocratic but also very sad for the poor and weaker sections of the society. Today, the students are being stopped from participating in protests. This is an anarchic situation, he told reporters.

On Monday, Richa Singh, former president of Allahabad University students union, said the protest against the 400 per cent fee hike will continue until it is rolled back. Today, when the inmates of the girls’ hostel were coming out from the hostel, the main gate (of the hostel) was closed on the orders of the vice chancellor, she said.

Some students of the university had put a lock on the gate of the university, which was opened with the help of the police. Strict action will be initiated against those students, who are creating obstructions like this, the city SP Santosh Kumar Meena said.
