Centre empowers states to prohibit use of funds, spaces by banned SIMI

FILE PIC: PTI
Centre has empowered state governments to prohibit the use of funds and spaces for holding activities by the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). 

In a notification, the Home Ministry said the ban imposed on SIMI was extended for five more years under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. 

The Ministry said, if SIMI's unlawful activities were not curbed immediately, it would continue its subversive activities. It said the outfit would re-organise its activists who are still absconding and disrupt the secular fabric of the country. The Ministry listed 58 cases in which SIMI members were allegedly involved.

The Ministry said the outfit has been undertaking activities prejudicial to the integrity and security of India. 

The notification said the central government is also of the opinion that it is necessary to declare SIMI an unlawful association with immediate effect because of its activities.
