Aasiya Andrabi-led DeM challenges ban under draconian UAPA



Dukhtaran-e-Millat led by illegally detained Hurriyat leader, Aasiya Andrabi, has moved the Delhi High Court challenging the banning of the organization by the Indian government under draconian law, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).

The prominent women organization Dukhtaran-e-Millat in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir was banned by the Indian government on December 30 in 2004 under the UAPA. The DeM Chairperson, Aasiya Andrabi, who was arrested by India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) in a false case in 2018, is presently lodged in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail.

In the petition before the court, the DeM has prayed for provision of a copy of the UAPA notification and removal of its name from the list of organisations mentioned in the First Schedule of the Act.—KMS
