Earlier on September 18, the National Investigation Agency had raided 40 locations of Popular Front of India on charges of carrying out terrorist activities. The agency had taken this action in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. There are many allegations against PFI of Kanpur violence, carrying out terrorist activities and spreading hatred on the basis of religion. From the CAA agitation in Delhi to the communal violence in Muzaffarnagar, Shamli and Khargone in Madhya Pradesh, it is being claimed to be linked to the PFI.

Let us tell you that the Popular Front of India was started in the year 2006 in Kerala. PFI came into existence in 2006 after the merger of three Muslim organizations. The three organizations were Rashtriya Vikas Morcha, Karnataka Forum for Dignity and Manitha Neeti Pasari of Tamil Nadu. After the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992, many such organizations came to the fore in the South. PFI was formed by merging some of them. Since then, this organization organizes programs across the country.

In its 16-year history, PFI claims to have units in 23 states of the country. The organization works for Muslims and Dalits in the country. This organization also seeks financial help from the countries of the Middle East, from which it gets substantial funding. The headquarter of PFI was in Kozhikode, but due to continuous expansion, its central office has been opened in the capital Delhi.
