New Delhi: Government of India has declared the Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI), Jammu and Kashmir as an “unlawful association”

The Government of India gazette notification banning Jamaat-e-Islami, Jammu and Kashmir (JeI) has underscored that the association has been indulging in activities, which are prejudicial to internal security and public order, and have the potential of disrupting the unity and integrity of the country.

the Central Government is of the opinion that:—
(i) JeI is in close touch with militant outfits and is supporting extremism and militancy in Jammu
and Kashmir and elsewhere;
(ii) JeI is supporting claims for secession of a part of the Indian territory from the Union and
supporting terrorist and separatist groups fighting for this purpose by indulging in activities and
articulations intended to disrupt the territorial integrity of India;
(iii) JeI is involved in anti-national and subversive activities in the country intended to cause
And whereas, the Central Government is further of the opinion that if the unlawful activities of JeI are
not curbed and controlled immediately, it is likely to:—
(a) escalate its subversive activities including attempt to carve out an Islamic State out of the
territory of Union of India by destabilising the Government established by law;
(b) continue advocating the secession of the State of Jammu and Kashmir from the Union of India
while disputing the accession of the State with the Union;
(c) propagate anti-national and separatist sentiments prejudicial to the integrity and security of the
country; and
(d) escalate secessionist movements, support militancy and incite violence in the country.
