The organisation is continuing its activities against the security, integrity and sovereignty of India: Shah

Srinagar: The Union Government on Tuesday extended the ban on Jamaat-e-Islami, Jammu and Kashmir, for five more years for continuing activities against the security, integrity and sovereignty of the nation, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said.

He also said that anyone threatening the security of the nation will face ruthless measures.

“Pursuing PM @narendramodi Ji’s policy of zero tolerance against terrorism and separatism the government has extended the ban on Jamaat-e-Islami, Jammu Kashmir for five years,” he wrote on ‘X’.

The home minister said the organisation is found continuing its activities against the security, integrity and sovereignty of the nation.

The outfit was first declared an ‘Unlawful Association’ on 28 February 2019.

The last ban on the ‘Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu Kashmir’ was imposed, vide Gazette Notification Number S.O. 1069(E), dated the 28th February, 2019.

Though most of the party activists have voluntarily distanced from the party’s erstwhile activities, the government agencies still believe that there is some mechanism in place that could be dangerous for country’s solidarity and integrity.

Sources said that some newly floated political parties were desperately trying to end the ban on Jamaat-e-Islami, as they expected their cadres to join the Lok Sabha Poll fray, but the reality on the ground indicated that it was just a trap and that is why the ban was extended.

The official sources said that Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu Kashmir is continuing to be involved in fomenting terrorism and anti-India propaganda for fueling secessionism in Jammu and Kashmir, which is prejudicial to the sovereignty, security and integrity of India. Many criminal cases have been registered against the Jamaat-e-Islami Jammu Kashmir and its members under various sections of law including the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

“The organisation is found continuing its activities against the security, integrity and sovereignty of the nation. The outfit was first declared an ‘Unlawful Association’ on 28 February 2019, ” HM Amit Shah posted on X.

“Anyone threatening the security of the nation will face ruthless measures,” he added.
