The Bombay High Court on Tuesday rejected the bail plea of ​​three members of the banned Popular Front of India (PFI). The court refused to grant bail to the three, saying that they had conspired to convert India into an Islamic country by 2047. The court said that there is prima facie evidence against the three.

A division bench of Justice Ajay Gadkari, Justice Shyam Chandak rejected the bail plea of ​​​​Razi Ahmed Khan, Unais Umar Khayyam Patel and Qayyum Abdul Sheikh. The court said in its order that the accused persons conspired to intimidate the government by using criminal force. The Center had banned PFI in 2022.

The court said, it is clear in the FIR that the three not only propagated the Vision-2047 document of their organization PFI, but also intended to implement it. The three accused also incited like-minded people to join them to intimidate the government. There is sufficient evidence to show that the appellants, along with other accused persons, have systematically carried out activities that are detrimental to the interest and integrity of the nation. The accused participated in spreading hatred and furthering the anti-national agenda through various means of propaganda.

The accused shared a document titled ‘Vision-2047’ on social media groups

The bench said that the accused persons shared a document titled ‘Vision- 2047’ on social media groups. Its perusal indicates that it is a conspiracy by the appellants to carry out the horrific acts committed as part of their conspiracy.

According to the prosecution, in June 2022, the accused had attended a secret meeting of the PFI. During this, they highlighted the various atrocities being committed against the Muslim community in India, including incidents of mob-lynching. The meeting emphasized that there is a need for unity in the Muslim community to wage war against the country by adopting any means.

Maharashtra ATS registered a case against all three

Following the meeting, Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) had registered a case against suspected PFI members under the Indian Penal Code for criminal conspiracy, promoting enmity between religious groups and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
