In the latest flashpoint between the Mahagathbandhan and the BJP, Nitish Kumar was charged with violating the PFI ban.

As of 32 hours after the radical outfit was banned, no action has been taken against it according to Union Minister Giriraj Singh on Twitter. Singh asked Kumar to clarify whether he endorses the PFI’s nefarious agenda.

“It has been 32 hours since PFI was officially banned, but Nitish Kumar’s police have yet to take any action against PFI,” Giriraj Singh said. Earlier, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav backed a ban on the PFI and called for the outlawing of the RSS as well. Nitish Ji, who dreams of becoming PM, must tell the media if he supports PFI’s agenda of Islamization of India by 2047?

Ban on PFI

Ministry of Home Affairs issued a notification on September 27 banning the PFI and its affiliate organizations. Along with PFI, its affiliates have been declared “unlawful associations”- Rehab India Foundation, All India Imams Council, National Confederation of Human Rights Organizations, National Women’s Front, Junior Front, Campus Front of India, Empower India Foundation, and Rehab Foundation, Kerala. In spite of this, the Social Democratic Party of India was not banned.

The Centre claims the PFI and its affiliates were engaging in unlawful activities that undermine the country’s integrity, sovereignty, and security. A professor’s limb was severed, persons affiliated with organizations espousing other faiths were murdered cold-bloodedly, explosives were obtained to target powerful individuals and places, and property was destroyed. A number of criminal, unlawful, and terrorist activities were also claimed to have been carried out by office-bearers and cadre members of the PFI through banking channels and hawala.

Prior to the ban, the PFI was subjected to ‘Operation Octopus’ – a massive nationwide crackdown by the government. An investigation was conducted by ED, NIA, state police in 15 states – Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Goa, West Bengal, Bihar and Manipur on September 22. As part of five cases registered by the NIA, these searches were conducted at the homes and offices of top PFI leaders and members. A total of 270 members of the PFI were taken into custody on Tuesday, in addition to 45 cadres arrested on tuesday
