Context:

  • The Government of India has declared the ‘Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party’ (JKDFP) as an ‘Unlawful Association’ under Section 3(1) of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) 1967.

What does it mean by ‘Unlawful Association’:

An “Unlawful Association” refers to an organization, group, or association that has been declared illegal or prohibited by the Indian government under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967 (UAPA).

  • Its activities become illegal: The association is prohibited from carrying out its activities, and any actions taken by it can be considered unlawful.
  • Membership restrictions: People can be prohibited from being members of such an association, and those already associated may face legal consequences.
  • Asset freezing: The government may freeze the assets of the unlawful association, preventing it from using funds for its activities.
  • Legal actions: Legal action can be taken against members and leaders of the association, including arrest and prosecution.

Note: for more details about UAPA– please refer daily current affairs section, 4 October 2023.
