Terrorist plans: NIA presents charge sheet against two accused in PFI's violent extremist activity case
NIA has presented a charge sheet in the Special Court for NIA Cases against two accused Mohammad Asif alias Asif of Kota and Sadiq Sarraf of Baran in a case related to the violent extremism activities and agenda of PFI (Popular Front of India) in Rajasthan. NIA has charged the accused under sections 120B, 153A of IPC and sections 13, 17, 18, 18A and 18B of UA(P) Act 1967.
The NIA said that the accused are trained members of PFI, who were involved in the process of recruiting youths for PFI to carry out violent acts. The main objective of the accused was to establish Islamic rule in India by 2047 as well as to execute terrorist and violent activities and to raise arms and money for them. Apart from this, he was also involved in organizing training camps for handling arms and explosives, inciting PFI cadres to take up arms and raising funds for carrying out violent activities.
Apart from this, he also encouraged the youth to resort to violent methods to promote disharmony between different religious sections of the country and to establish Islamic rule in the country. They radicalize Muslim youth to believe that Islam is under threat in India while doing so through PFI cadres and community to protect Islam and told they need to train themselves in the use of weapons to establish Islamic rule in India by 2047.
The accused persons were collecting money in the name of zakat for the purchase of arms and conducting arms and explosives training camps for PFI cadres. Significantly, the NIA registered this case in September 2022 in a conspiracy hatched by PFI leaders to create a rift between different classes in India and establish Islamic rule through arms training to radicalized and gullible Muslim youths. Made on purpose.
