Government cracks down on Jamaat-e-Islami, seals its offices, bank accounts seized, assets frozen

The outfit was banned on February 28 by the Government of India following the recent terror attack in Pulwama

The government continues its crackdown on Jamaat-e-Islami, the banned outfit which is suspected of funding the terror organisation Hizbul Mujahideen and has now sealed its offices in the valley. On February 28, the Government of India banned Jamaat-e-Islami following the ghastly terror attack in Pulwama.

According to reports, 350 leaders of the organization have been detained by the government, 70-Srinagar based bank accounts have been seized, and assets worth Rs 52 crore have been confiscated and action has been initiated under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. The government crackdown has also affected the separatist organization’s 400 schools, 350 mosques and 1000 seminaries across Jammu and Kashmir.

According to a top government official, quoted by TOI, the District Magistrate will ask the Police to make a list of inventories. Then, another list will be made to check the legality of the properties. Currently, it is estimated that Jamat-e-Islami has properties worth Rs 4,500 crores.

Police can also book the members of organizations under the section of Public Safety Act (PSA) or Section 151 CrPC (arrest to prevent the commission of cognizable offences). The police will also try to find if the member to be booked under these section has any previous cases on him, so as to make the case stronger.

JeI has been declared as “unlawful organisation” under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967 by the government. It was banned after it was proved to have been in touch with terror outfits and that it lends support to extremist activities and terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir and other parts of the country.

It is said that JeI is supporting demands from secession from India, and has been supporting terrorist and separatist groups. Its top leader includes Abdul Hamid Fayaz, Zahid Ali, Mudasir Ahmad, Ghulam Qadir.
