PFI ban: BJP hails ‘strong action’, says Congress backed outfit | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Terming it a strong and timely move that reasserted the Modi government’s “‘zero tolerance policy” on terrorism, BJP on Wednesday welcomed the five-year ban on PFI and accused Congress of patronising the “anti-national” organisation.
BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla said it was a historic move like the abrogation of Article 370. “It is a strong and timely action by the Centre,” he said.
He alleged that PFI was patronised by Congress and claimed that its government had allowed the PFI a free run in Kota in Rajasthan and withdrew cases against it in Karnataka.
Taking on Congress as well as AIMIM, which questioned the move, BJP general secretary (organisation) BL Santhosh said, “If there is anything anti-national, these two parties will support it.”
Senior BJP member Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi also attacked Congress saying it is unfortunate that some people are looking at their political profit and loss even in this. Strict action has been taken against those “acting as proxies of anti-India forces” that were against democracy and part of a violent conspiracy, he said.
Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and his UP counterpart Yogi Adityanath too welcomed the decision. “The government is firm in its resolve to ensure that anyone with a diabolical, divisive or disruptive design against India shall be dealt with an iron fist,” Sarma tweeted.
Adityanath said this is a new India where terrorists, criminals and individuals who pose a threat to the unity and integrity of the nation and security are not acceptable. Congratulating home minister Amit Shah for the move, BJP general secretary CT Ravi also alleged that “PFI was nurtured by Congress”.
