In a significant move aimed at preserving national security and public order, the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, has issued a notification declaring the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) as an unlawful association. This decision comes as a response to the party’s involvement in various activities that pose a threat to the integrity, sovereignty, and communal harmony of the country.

Origins and Leadership of JKDFP

Established in 1998 by Shabir Ahmad Shah, a prominent separatist leader known for his anti-India and pro-Pakistan stance, the JKDFP has consistently advocated for the Kashmir issue as a ‘dispute’ outside the framework of the Indian constitution. Shah’s leadership and the party’s agenda have been a source of concern for the Indian government.

Secessionist Agenda and Unlawful Activities

The JKDFP has been at the forefront of secessionist activities in the volatile region of Jammu and Kashmir. Its primary objective is to create a separate Islamic state, a stance that directly challenges the constitutional authority and setup of India. Moreover, the party and its members, particularly Shabir Ahmad Shah, have been actively involved in unlawful activities, including raising funds from various sources, including Pakistan and its proxy organizations, to support terrorism and engage in stone-pelting against security forces.

Links to Banned Terrorist Organizations and Violent Activities

The Indian government has received intelligence inputs indicating possible linkages between JKDFP and banned terrorist organizations. The party has been implicated in violent terrorist activities that aim to instill fear and disrupt public order. These anti-national activities have further fueled concerns about the party’s intentions and disregard for India’s constitutional authority.

Government’s Assessment and Action

The Ministry of Home Affairs believes that if JKDFP’s activities are not curbed immediately, the party is likely to escalate its secessionist efforts, destabilize the state government, and continue propagating anti-national sentiments. To address these concerns, the Central Government has taken the decisive step of declaring JKDFP an unlawful association for a period of five years under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

This move is seen as a necessary measure to protect the nation’s security, maintain public order, and uphold the constitutional authority and integrity of India. It sends a strong message that the government is committed to preserving peace and stability in the region.
