In a significant development, the government has banned the Jammu Kashmir National Front (JKNF), led by Nayeem Ahmad Khan, under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. The Ministry of Home Affairs issued an order declaring the JKNF, a constituent of the hardline Hurriyat Conference, as an "unlawful association" with immediate effect.

Allegations of unlawful activities

According to the government, the JKNF has been involved in activities detrimental to the integrity, sovereignty, and security of the nation. It accused the group of supporting terrorist activities, promoting anti-India propaganda, and fueling secessionism in Jammu and Kashmir.



Support for terrorism

The order highlighted the group's alleged involvement in providing logistical support to terrorists in Union territory. It also accused JKNF members of mobilizing violent protesters and orchestrating unlawful activities, including stone-pelting on security forces.

Duration of ban

The ban imposed on the Jammu Kashmir National Front will remain in effect for five years.

Further implications awaited

Details regarding the enforcement and implications of the ban are awaited as the situation unfolds.
