    Jharkhand High Court dismisses the govt's move of banning PFI

    Ranchi, Aug 28: The Jharkhand High Court has set aside a state government notification banning the Popular Front of India (PFI) on technical grounds.

    The bench of Justice Rongon Mukhopadhyay yesterday set aside the February 21, 2018, order of the Jharkhand government, saying it had not been published in the gazette. The Jharkhand government had banned the PFI on account of its members being "internally influenced" by terror outfit ISIS.

    PFI member Abdul Badud had challenged the order banning the organisation. The bench also quashed FIRs registered by police against the PFI, an Islamic organisation. The bench, however, rejected the petitioners contention to prevent the state government from banning any organisation under Section 16 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act, saying the state has the power to do so.
