  • The Union Ministry of Home Affairs has banned the Popular Front of India (PFI) and its associations.
  • This is made under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for their links with terrorist groups and subversive activities.
  • The ban was imposed based on the recommendations from the state governments of Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka and Gujarat.
  • Now, the PFI has joined the LeT, JeM, al Qaida, SIMI and other extremist groups on the “banned” list.
  • 8 organizations that are operating as affiliates to the PFI have also been banned.
  • The PFI was founded in 2007 as a result of the merger of the three Muslim organizations from Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
