Four persons associated with the Popular Front of India arrested

The case of conspiracy to instigate riots concerning the Hathras issue

One of the accused is a journalist.

  • Popular Front of India is accused of rioting in the state on CAA bill. The Government should have banned the organisation much earlier. At least now, the State and Central Government should act now, ban PFI, and imprison all activists.
  • It is evident which parties are instigating the riots. However, the secularists, progressives are mum. If a Hindu organisation was among these, these pseudo secularists would scream to demand a ban.
