Supported the demand for ban on RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) also.
2. This is the reason that the opposition parties are also angry and attacking on this issue considering the government’s intentions to be flawed and the demand for banning the RSS is also openly being raised that if PFI is a threat to the internal security of the country then other organizations like that. But why shouldn’t it be banned?

The BSP chief tweeted on Friday, “Following the nationwide action taken by the Center against the People’s Front of India (PFI), it has now finally banned eight of its affiliates, including PFI, ahead of the assembly elections.” People are considering it as a policy of political selfishness and union appeasement and they have less satisfaction and more restlessness.
Mayawati said in her silsilwar tweet, ‘This is the reason why the opposition parties are angry and attacking on this issue considering the government’s intentions to be flawed and the demand for banning the RSS is also being openly demanded if PFI is for the internal security of the country. If there is a threat, why shouldn’t other organizations like that also be banned?’
Significantly, the central government on Wednesday imposed five years under the anti-terrorism law UAPA, accusing Islamist organization Popular Front of India (PFI) of having “links” with global terrorist groups like ISIS and trying to spread communal hatred in the country. is banned.
According to the gazetted notification, eight partner organizations of PFI – Rehab India Foundation, Campus Front of India, All India Imam Council, National Confederation of Human Rights Organization, National Women Front, Junior Front, Empower India Foundation and Rehab Foundation, Kerala are also named. They are included in the list of organizations that have been banned under the UAPA i.e. Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
It is noteworthy that after the ban of PFI and its allies, many opposition parties including RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav had also said that organizations like Rashtriya Swayamsevak should also be banned.
Lalu Prasad Yadav had said in a tweet that ‘all the organizations spreading hatred and hatred like PFI, should be banned, including the RSS. First of all, ban the RSS, it is a worse organization than that.
He also referred to the earlier restrictions on the RSS. It is to be known that after the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, the Sangh was banned, which was removed after a year.
in the year 2019 the wire The U.S. had told in a report that the documents related to this ban should be publicly available, but then in response to an RTI application, it was told that neither these are with the National Archives nor with the Ministry of Home Affairs.
On Wednesday, senior Congress leader and former Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala had also spoken of banning the RSS.
He said, ‘RSS should also be banned in the same way. Majority communalism and minority communalism both should be equally opposed in Kerala. Both the organizations have instigated communal hatred and thus tried to create division in the society.
State Congress MP Kodikunnil Suresh had also said the same thing. Suresh had said, ‘We demand a ban on RRS also. Banning PFI is not the cure, RSS is also spreading Hindu communalism across the country. RSS and PFI are same, so government should ban both?’
