Modi govt prepares for major action to ban all hurriyat conference factions

Srinagar: The Hurriyat Conference, a separatist organisation, has played a major role in disrupting peace and spreading radicalization in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. Several of its leaders have been accused of funding terrorists. In view of this, the Modi government at the Centre may soon ban all factions of the Kashmiri separatist organisation Hurriyat Conference under the Prevention of Illegal Activities Act (UAPA).

According to media reports, sources in intelligence agencies have said that the Modi government may decide to ban all factions of the Hurriyat Conference. These include the faction of deceased Syed Ali Shah Gilani. The government is preparing to ban these hurriyat groups under Section 3(1) of the UAPA. Recently, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) as well as the Jammu and Kashmir Government informed the Home Ministry about the hurriyat conference providing funds to terrorists in the state. Union Home Minister Amit Shah had then asked NIA and the state government to share more details in the matter. According to sources, the information sought by the Home Ministry has been conveyed to them.

An official told the media that several Hurriyat Conference leaders have been in jail in the last few years and investigating agencies have been able to penetrate terror funding networks. The ban on all factions of the organization will help in dealing with terrorism more effectively. He said the ban will help agencies curb community level fund collection by the Hurriyat Conference. The separatist outfit later gives the same money to terrorists in Kashmir on the direction of Pakistan's ISI.
