New Delhi, Nov.26 (ANI): Members of the Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena (Revolutionary Army), a radical youth group, took to the streets of New Delhi on Saturday, in protest against the 'Social Justice Conference' organised by the Popular Front of India (PFI), an alleged Islamist organisation.
Demonstrators shouted slogans on the streets leading to Delhi's Ramlila Maidan, the venue of the conference. They said that the founders of the PFI were old functionaries of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and had links with militant groups.
"This (the Popular Front of India) is a faction of many different organisations. Old members of SIMI (Students Islamic Movement of India) have created it. They have links with al Qaeda and Indian Mujahideen. Early in the morning today, we heard pro-Pakistan slogans, which made our blood boil. At the end of the day, we are Indians, we will not tolerate these things here," said Kartik Dhar, one of the demonstrators.
The Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena, which claims inspiration from the eponymous freedom fighter, hit the headlines in October, when the group claimed responsibility for the assault on anti-graft activist Prashant Bhushan.(ANI)
