The Ajmer Dargah dewan Zainul Abedin Ali Khan on Wednesday welcomed the decision to declare the Popular Front of India (PFI) as an unlawful organisation under the (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act) for its alleged terror activities.
He said this action has been taken to comply with the law and prevent terrorism, and it should be welcomed by all.
“If the country is safe then we are safe, the country is a bigger than any institution or idea and if someone talks about breaking this country, breaking the unity and sovereignty here, talks about spoiling the peace of the country, then he has no right to live in this country,” he said.
He said that for the past several days, there have been continuous reports of anti-national activities of PFI and the ban is in the interest of the country.
“I myself had first demanded the government to ban PFI two years ago today,” he said.
A ban on PFI has been imposed by the central govt in a sight of terror links. The Ministry of Home Affairs on Tuesday night made the announcement through a notification declaring “the PFI and its associates or affiliates or fronts s an unlawful association with immediate effect.
The NIA had arrested over 106 members of the PFI during its largest-ever raids spread across 15 states on September 22.
