NEW DELHI: The Centre on Friday declared the Students Islamic Movement of India as an unlawful association.

A notification in this regard was issued by the Registrar, Unlawful Activities (prevention) Tribunal under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

The Tribunal, comprising Mr Justice B N Chaturvedi of the Delhi High court, had been constituted by the Centre for adjudicating whether or not there was sufficient cause for declaring SIMI as an unlawful association.

A February 8 notification of the Ministry of Home Affairs had said that SIMI had been indulging in activities which were prejudicial to the security of the country and had the potential of disturbing peace and communal harmony and disrupting the secular fabric of the country.

The Centre was of the opinion that activists of SIMI were even now indulging themselves in communal and anti-national activities for reasons that the organisation was banned earlier.
