After police apprehended over 100 PFI members this month, India branded the Muslim organization Popular Front of India (PFI) and its affiliates illegal, accusing them of “terrorism” and barring them for five years. “Popular Front India and its allies or affiliates or fronts have been proven to be implicated in severe offenses, including terrorism and its funding, targeted brutal killings, in violation of the constitutional framework,” India’s home ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
The government has outlawed PFI and its affiliates 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, according to the announcement. The government stated that it discovered a “number of examples of PFI international links with global terrorist organizations,” and that some of its members had joined the ISIL (ISIS) armed group and participated in “terror acts” in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
