The government has imposed a ban on the Popular Front of India (PFI) for its alleged terror activities.

In a notification issued late Tuesday night, the Union Home Ministry said the central government believes that the PFI and its affiliates have been involved in subversive activities, thereby disturbing public order and undermining the constitutional set up of the country, and encouraging and enforcing a terror-based regressive regime.

It continues "propagating anti-national sentiments and radicalising a particular section of society" intending to create disaffection against the country, it said.

"And whereas, the central government for the above-mentioned reasons is firm of the opinion that having regard to the activities of the PFI, it is necessary to declare the PFI and its associates or affiliates or fronts to be an unlawful association with immediate effect," the home ministry notification read.
