MHA asks states to give info on SIMI as ban ends next year 

New Delhi: The Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has sent a communication to state governments asking them to provide update on the activities of radical Islamic students group SIMI so that the Centre could come to a decision on whether to continue with the ban imposed on it beyond January next year.In the letter, sources in the MHA said the ban imposed on the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act comes to an end on January 31, 2019, but if the Central government finds the group continues to indulge in unlawful activities, then the prohibition may be imposed afresh.”In case the state government finds that the aforesaid organisation is still indulging in unlawful activity and other activities prejudicial to the integrity and internal security of the nation or with a potential to threaten the secular fabric of the country, the relevant material covering cases under the Act registered before February 1, 2014, and their latest status indicating persons convicted, released, appeal preferred, if any, may be provided to this ministry,” a senior MHA official quoting the letter said.
