After being outlawed by the government last year, the Popular Front of India has petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn a ruling by the UAPA Tribunal that had maintained the group’s prohibition.
The Popular Front of India (PFI), a banned organisation, has petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn a ruling made under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) Tribunal, which ruled that the organization was illegal.
The case will be heard by a bench of Justices Bela M. Trivedi and Aniruddha Bose on Friday.
According to the strict anti-terror statute UAPA, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) banned PFI and its affiliated organizations for five years in September of last year for their involvement in illegal operations.
The government claimed that the PFI’s actions have the potential to undermine national security, disrupt intercommunal harmony, and encourage terrorism. Such actions are detrimental to the nation’s security, integrity, and sovereignty. said the government.
A few days later, the UAPA Tribunal affirmed the government’s prohibition on PFI.
