Government extends ban on LTTE

Government extends ban on LTTE

In its latest notification, the Union Home Ministry extended the ban imposed on the militant group, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) for its strong anti-India posture and the threat it poses to the nation.

According to the Indian Government, the LTTE has been covertly working towards the creation of Tamil Eelam, a proposed independent state for Tamils, and has been undertaking fundraising activities for the same.

As per the Central Government, the activities of LTTE continue to pose a threat and are detrimental to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of India as well as the public order. Therefore, the government felt that it should extend a ban on the outfit and declare it as an unlawful association.

Background

The Indian Government has banned as many as 41 terrorist outfits under the first schedule of the unlawful activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.

The LTTE has been declared as a terrorist organisation by over 32 countries, including the European Union.
