Jamaat-e-Islami Hind condemns ED raids on PFI offices

December 6, 2020

New Delhi, 6 Dec. 2020: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has condemned the Enforcement Directorate’s raids on the offices of the Popular Front of India (PFI) last Wednesday.


In a statement issued to the media, the JIH Vice President – Prof Salim Engineer said: “The raids on the PFI offices are a violation of the standard operating procedure of the department. The government is misusing various agencies in an undemocratic manner to silence dissenting voices. It is disappointing to see agencies like the ED being misused to create an atmosphere of fear and to silence the voices of dissent. This undemocratic action is being carried out against the individuals, groups and NGOs who disagree and criticize the policies of the government. The recent raids of the ED on the offices of the PFI throughout the country are highly condemnable. The government should refrain from such vindictive actions which would add to the trust-deficit between the government and the community.”


Expressing concern over the raids the JIH Vice President said: “The government is increasingly being seen as anti-citizen. The timings of the ED raids on PFI, raise a suspicion that it has been managed to divert the attention of the public from the farmers’ agitation. The government’s attitude towards various organisations and individuals is very much detrimental to the spirit of the constitution.”
