The Islamic jihadist movement, though, might be headed towards rebirth. To established Islamic jihadist movement, Popular Front of India (PFI) is secretly serving its hidden agenda which aims to establish the Islamic rule in India, radicalization of Muslims and communalization of issues involving Muslims and other communities. Its ideology aims at and works towards undermining the concepts of democracy, secularism and nationalism. Popular Front of India (PFI) is the open face of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).The central investigating agencies found links between PFI and Pakistani spy agency, ISI. With the exposure of hate speeches of Islamic preacher, Zakir Naik – investigating agencies claimed, again, that there is a link between PFI and Zakir Naik. 127 Kerala based Muslims, who were influenced by PFI literature joined ISIS operation abroad and hence agencies again linked PFI with ISIS. The controversial slogans raised by a minor boy during a massive rally by the People’s Front of India (PFI) in Alappuzha last week has brought into the spotlight a campaign it has been running for the past six months called ‘Save the Republic’. Meant to ensure “Muslims the rights envisaged in the Constitution”, among other topics, the campaign has now evolved into a full-blown offensive against the RSS.
Other hand, Campus Front of India (CFI) seems to have taken a special interest in school , college and University students and comes with a clear agenda of infiltrating school campuses with religious politics and radical Islamic ideas. CFI held protests against the four year undergraduate programme (FYUP), proposed at the Delhi University. It organized a signature campaign in over 100 colleges of 20 universities in many parts of India. CFI on behalf of its Save Rohingya campaign organized a March to the Myanmar embassy protesting against the Myanmar government’s atrocities against Rohingya people.
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has indicated that the recent violence in Batadrava, during which a police station was burned down, was orchestrated by extremist Islamic organisation Popular Front of India (PFI). Alleging the PFI’s hand in communal violence in Assam, Sarma called for a ban on the organisation, including its student wing, Campus Front of India. He said PFI and CFI were openly carrying out activities and distributing literature in a bid to destabilise Assam. “I have asked the Union Home Minister [Amit Shah] to ban the outfit. However, banning an organisation needs several legal measures. I hope the Centre gives this request due consideration,” he said.
Regardless of the fact that this free-thinking liberal section is least concerned with the involvement of PFI and CFI in various anti-national activities. So, rather than being caught in an image trap, GOI should immediately and effectively prohibit operations of PFI.
