Taking strong steps against terrorism and separatism, the Modi government made a big decision on Friday. The central government has banned the separatist leader Yasin Malik’s JKLF (Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front). This decision was taken in the meeting of the Security Committee of the Cabinet. The government has taken these actions under the anti-terrorism law.
Yasin Malik is alleged to have used anti-India activities since 1994. He went to Pakistan on the passport of the country and used to engage in anti-national activities there. Earlier Modi government had also banned Jamaat-e-Islami. After the ban, the Home Secretary said in the press conference that JKLF is a threat to the security of the country. He told that the organization has been banned under various provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Its chief Yasin Malik is arrested already.
The government has banned this and said that this organization is involved in violence in the Valley since 1988. According to the Home Secretary, the mastermind behind the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley is Yasin Malik. His organization gives money to stone pelters in Kashmir. He does funding for this on a massive scale.
Yasin Malik is counted among those separatist leaders who wind up anti-India activities in the valley. He drives the campaign against the tricolor in the valley. Experts say that leaders like Yasin Malik should have been banned long ago. But this has happened after a very long time. Yasin Malik has been given the crores of rupees by the previous government.
JKLF head terrorist Yasin Malik who also killed 4 IAF personnel.
