New Delhi, 27th December 2023: In a significant development, the Muslim League Jammu Kashmir (Masrat Alam faction) has been officially declared an unlawful association. Home Minister Amit Shah took to Twitter, via his official account, to make the announcement. He stated that the organization, officially known as Muslim League Jammu Kashmir (Masrat Alam faction)/MLJK-MA, has been designated an ‘unlawful association’ under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).

The Home Minister emphasized that the group and its members are actively involved in anti-national and separatist activities within Jammu and Kashmir. Furthermore, they are accused of supporting terrorist activities and inciting people to establish Islamic rule in the region. In his tweet, Shah conveyed the firm message of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government that those working against the nation will face consequences.

Masrat Alam Bhatt, the interim chairman of the organization, has been incarcerated in Delhi’s Tihar Jail for the past four years. Notably, he is also facing charges related to terrorist funding, with the National Investigation Agency (NIA) having registered a case against him. Masrat Alam’s involvement in the violent protests in Kashmir in 2008 and 2010 has been documented, leading to his arrest. With 27 cases against him, Alam has been a key figure in the radical separatist group All Parties Hurriyat Conference.
