The Modi government extended the ban on Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) for five years under UAPA on Monday. The Home Ministry, while announcing the extension of the ban, said the SIMI has been found involved in fomenting terrorism, disturbing peace and communal harmony to threaten the sovereignty, security and integrity of the country.

“Bolstering PM @narendramodi Ji’s vision of zero tolerance against terrorism ‘Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI)’ has been declared as an ‘Unlawful Association’ for a further period of five years under the UAPA. The SIMI has been found involved in fomenting terrorism, disturbing peace and communal harmony to threaten the sovereignty, security and integrity of Bharat,” a post by the Home Ministry read.

Earlier, SIMI, which was allegedly involved in a series of terror acts in the country, was banned by the government for five more years in 2019.
