PFI, SDPI extremist organizations indulge in serious acts of violence, says Kerala HC

The Kerala High Court has observed that the Popular Front of India (PFI) and the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) were “extremist organisations”, but were not banned. Same, they are not banned organisations,” Justice K Haripal said in a recent order while dismissing a plea seeking a CBI probe into the murder of an RSS worker in the state’s Palakkad district in November last year.

SDPI is a political party established in 2009. It is the political wing of the Islamic organization PFI.

Responding to the court’s adverse remarks against it, the SDPI said it would file a petition seeking removal of those remarks.

“This is a very serious observation. Not even a single investigating agency has made such remarks against SDPI so far. On what basis did the Court make such remarks? The Court’s remarks should be justified. Here, it did not happen,” SDPI K. State President Muvattupuzha Ashraf Moulvi said on Friday.

Echoing the views of SDPI, PFI said the court’s remarks against it were inappropriate.

In a Facebook post, state PFI leader CA Rauf lamented that the court had not listened to him before making such adverse remarks.

He added that the PFI is also planning to take a legal route to remove those comments. “The primary lesson in the administration of justice is to listen to the parties affected before making any remarks. Nothing of the sort has happened in this case. It is like denying natural justice.”

Meanwhile, Sangh Parivar organizations welcomed the court’s observations against PFI and SDPI, claiming that there is evidence to prove the “inhuman anti-national activities” of these organizations in the country.

Hindu Aikyavedi leader KP Sasikala said both PFI and SDPI should be banned. He said that governments should also ensure that they do not take a second form and do not indulge in extremist activities after the ban in the country.

RSS worker A Sanjeet (27) was murdered on November 15 last year when he was taking his wife to her workplace. The police later arrested several people, including a PFI functionary, in this case.

In its May 5 judgment, the High Court observed that the Investigating Officer has ruled out the involvement of state level or national level leaders of organizations in the commission of the crime.

“Just because some criminals are absconding, CBI cannot be asked to investigate. Here, the investigating agency has neither special interest in the case nor is it interested in saving the culprits. In other words, partisan attitude cannot be inferred,” the court said.

Noting that the culprits involved in the crime have been identified and many of them have been arrested, the High Court observed that if the investigation is handed over to the CBI, it will result in further delay in the proceedings.

“It is not in the public interest. This may also pave the way for the accused persons to seek their release on bail.”
