Indian government extends ban on Yasin Malik-led JKLF for another 5 yrs

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 16 Mar 2024, 02:33 pm

The government on Saturday extended the ban on 'Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (Mohd. Yasin Malik faction)' for a further period of five years.

The ban as an 'Unlawful Association' was extended as it continued to engage in activities that fomented terror and secessionism in Jammu and Kashmir.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on social media X said, "The Modi government has declared the 'Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (Mohd. Yasin Malik faction)' as an 'Unlawful Association' for a further period of five years."

"The banned outfit continues to engage in activities that foment terror and secessionism in Jammu and Kashmir. Anyone found challenging the security, sovereignty, and integrity of the nation will face harsh legal consequences," he said in his post.

Moreover, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) also declared four factions of the Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League—namely, JKPL (Mukhtar Ahmed Waza), JKPL (Bashir Ahmad Tota), JKPL (Ghulam Mohammad Khan), and JKPL (Aziz Sheikh) led by Yaqoob Sheikh—as 'Unlawful Associations'.

These organisations were involved in inciting terror and abetting secessionism in Jammu and Kashmir.

"The Modi government will remain unsparing to people and organisations involved in terror activities and is committed to suppressing terrorism ruthlessly," the Home Minister added.
