New Delhi: The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Government of India, Thursday declared Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) as an Unlawful Association under Section 3(1) of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) 1967.

An official spokesman in a statement issued to the Press Information Bureau (PIB) here said that this organisation had been involved in anti-national activities since 1998 and its members had always promoted separatism and terrorist acts in India.

He said that the members of this organisation, by inciting the people, wanted to make Kashmir a separate Islamic state, which was prejudicial to the sovereignty, security, and integrity of India.
