The MHA said members of the JKNF have remained involved in supporting ‘terrorist’ activities and anti-India propaganda for fuelling secessionism in Jammu and Kashmir and providing logistic support to ‘terrorists’ in Jammu and Kashmir.

“The leaders and members of JKNF have been involved in mobilising violent protesters in various parts of Kashmir for perpetrating unlawful activities, including supporting terrorist activities, sustained stone pelting on security forces in Jammu and Kashmir,” the MHA said.

”JKNF has constantly asked the people of Kashmir to refrain from taking part in elections and thereby targeted and hampered the very basic constitutionally recognized fundamentals of Indian democracy,” the Ministry said.
