New Delhi: The Popular Front of India (PFI) and its sister organisations were banned by the central government after investigating agencies’ investigations revealed that these groups were engaged in illegal activity.
The union government’s action follows a flurry of crackdowns by the investigating agencies over the previous five days on PFI and its members. More than 106 PFI members were held by police enforcement, and 247 more were arrested.
Additionally, it has been claimed that the PFI and its associates have engaged in illegal acts that endanger the integrity, sovereignty, and security of the nation. The government asserts that these actions run the risk of upsetting sectarian harmony and public order as well as encouraging militancy in the nation.
