Muslim Body Hails Govt Move To Ban PFI, Its Associates For 5 Years

New Delhi | Updated: 28 September, 2022 12:23 pm IST

Hours after the Central government decided to ban Popular Front of India (PFI) and its associated organisations for a period of five years, the All India Sufi Sajjadanashin Council (AISSC) welcomed the government decision.

 AISSC Chairman Syed Naseeruddin Chishti said that he welcomes the decision of the government to put a ban on PFI and its affiliated organisations and affiliated institutions.

He said that the AISSC believed that if this action has been taken for maintaining law and order and for prevention of terrorism, then everyone should work patiently towards that aim and the step of the government and investigative agencies should be hailed.

“Because, if the country is safe, then we are safe. And the country is always bigger than any institution or idea and if anyone talks about breaking this country, breaking the unity and sovereignty here, talking about spoiling the peace of the country, then he has no right to stay in the country,” Chishti asserted. He added that the AISSC is always committed to the unity, sovereignty, and peace of the country and will continue to raise its voice against the anti-national forces in the future too.

Chishti also said that for the last several days, there were continuous reports of anti-national activities of PFI. “It is a point of consideration for the Muslims of the country in the wake of allegations that PFI has been brainwashing the youth with Wahaabi ideology. Muslims should help the country in its pursuit of stability and peace.”

Chishti also expressed confidence that he and his council have faith in the country’s judicial system, law, and constitution and that injustice will not be done to anyone. “Significantly, the AISSC had first demanded a ban on PFI in front of National Security Advisor Ajit Doval at the Sarva Dharma Sammelan held in Delhi on July 30,” he added.

Describing them as an “unlawful association”, the government has banned PFI and its associated or affiliates or fronts, including 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, for a period of five years with immediate effect.
