Yasin Malik-led JKLF Banned

The Yasin Malik-led Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front was banned for “promoting” secession of the militancy-hit state from the Union of India.

Banning the outfit under various provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act after a high-level meeting on security chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, officials said the Centre is of the opinion that the JKLF is “in close touch with militant outfits” and is supporting extremism and militancy in Jammu and Kashmir and elsewhere.

They said the outfit claims “secession of a part of the Indian territory from the union” and supports terrorist and separatist groups fighting for this purpose.
