Karnataka: After attack on Congress MLA Sait, CM accuses Siddaramaiah for going easy on PFI, govt mulls ban

 Former home minister R Ashok also said that the Karnataka government will first discuss the issue and then recommend to the Centre to ban both PFI and the Karnataka Forum for Dignity (KFD).

A 24-year-old man who had attacked the Karnataka MLA Tanveer Sait on Sunday at a wedding is believed to be a member of the radical Islamic organisation Popular Front of India.

On Sunday, Karnataka Congress MLA Tanveer Sait was stabbed by a 20-year-old attacker at a wedding reception in Mysuru. The whole event was captured on camera. The attacker had tried to run away after he had stabbed the Narasimharaja MLA Sait.

Initial reports had suggested that the attack may have been triggered due to personal enmity of the accused against Sait over a job. However, later reports emerged that the accused attacker named Farhan was part of the radical Islamic organization Popular Front of India (PFI).

Karnataka CM Yediyurappa has indirectly accused former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of being responsible for the attack on Congress MLA Tanveer Sait suggesting that was his government that showed a lenient attitude towards PFI.

“When Siddaramaiah was chief minister, he withdrew all cases against Islamic outfit Popular Front of India (PFI). This was after there were riots in Shivamogga and Mysuru and also a murder. Now Tanveer Sait has been attacked,” CM Yediyurappa said.

Accusing Siddaramaiah of protecting PFI for votes, Yediyurappa said, “I want to ask Siddaramaiah, who by withdrawing cases has given protection to PFI which is involved in murder and goonda giri (hooliganism), are you not in a way indirectly responsible for the attack on Tanveer Sait?”

Siddaramaiah had earlier tweeted saying that the attack on Sait shows the complete collapse of law and order in the state.

Reacting to Yediyurappa’s comments, Siddaramaiah said, “The CM must speak responsibly. We did not withdraw cases only against PFI activists, but also those filed during the tenure of the earlier BJP government against members of the Karnataka Forum for Dignity (KFD).”

In the light of these events, the Karnataka government is now considering to ban Islamic organisation Popular Front of India (PFI) for their alleged involvement in the brutal attack against Sait.

Former home minister R Ashok also said that the Karnataka government will first discuss the issue and then recommend to the Centre to ban both PFI and the Karnataka Forum for Dignity (KFD).

The radical Islamic organisation Popular Front of India is notoriously known for instigating several communal incidents in the country. Popular Front of India, a radical Islamic organisation, has been accused of having links with the banned Islamic terror group Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI).

In the past, the PFI members have been accused of chopping off the hands of a Kerala Professor for allegedly insulting Islamic Prophet Mohammed.

In Kerala, most of its leaders were members of the banned Student Islamic Movement of India. Reportedly, the PFI was allegedly involved in at least 24 political murders in Kerala.

Besides this, it has been accused by the National Investigative Agency (NIA) of being involved in the controversial ‘love jihad’ cases in Kerala. Recently, activists of its political arm SDPI were arrested in connection with an ABVP worker’s brutal murder in Kerala’s Kannur.

Recently, PFI members were accused of killing 42-year-old activist Ramalingam. The activist was brutally murdered for opposing forced religious conversions.

The state of Jharkhand had banned the PFI last year.
