BJP Unveils Tough Stand: 5 More Years of Ban on J&K Jamaat-e-Islami Amidst Ongoing Security Concerns

New Delhi, 27/02/2024

In a decisive move aligning with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s unwavering commitment to combating terrorism and separatism, India’s Union Home Ministry announced the extension of the ban on Jammu and Kashmir Jamaat-e-Islami for an additional five years. Home Minister Amit Shah conveyed the decision, emphasizing the government’s policy of zero tolerance towards activities threatening the security, integrity, and sovereignty of the nation.

“The organization is found continuing its activities against the security, integrity, and sovereignty of the nation,” Amit Shah stated in a post on social media platform X, reiterating the government’s commitment to safeguarding the nation against any potential threats.

Jamaat-e-Islami was initially declared an ‘Unlawful Association’ on 28 February 2019, marking the government’s stance against its alleged involvement in activities detrimental to national security. The extension of the ban underscores the authorities’ resolute approach in dealing with entities that pose a risk to the country’s stability.

Amit Shah issued a stern warning, stating, “Anyone threatening the security of the nation will face ruthless measures.” The move is part of India’s ongoing efforts to curb terrorism and maintain peace in the region. The decision to extend the ban reflects the government’s commitment to taking stringent actions against organizations believed to be working against the interests of the nation.

This development is expected to have significant implications for the security landscape in Jammu and Kashmir, with the ban aimed at curbing the alleged anti-national activities associated with Jamaat-e-Islami.
