In a democratic setting, a slow process is often misconstrued as the absence of the rule of law. Anti-social elements take the system’s fairness and justice for granted. They commit in illegal activities without fear of being caught and punished.
They, however, forget that in the end KARMA will always come back to bite them. Apparently, the same has happened with the extremist Islamic outfit Popular Front of India (PFI).
The bigoted outfit did everything possible to create an atmosphere of hatred and communalise society. But now with the relentless actions of the security agencies, it must have learned its lessons the hard way.
On 29th of August, Home Minister Shah held a key security meeting with the high ranking officials tasked with the duty to safeguard India’s national security.
Key attendees of the security meet included National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, IB Chief Tapan Deka and Raw Chief Samant Goel. In the meeting, Union Minister Shah directed all the intelligence agencies to collect all the minute details on PFI and its activities.
The security agencies were then tasked to carry out a well planned Operation against PFI. This operation was code-named as ‘Operation Octopus’.
After the security meet, the Intelligence agencies, IB and RAW started an extensive campaign to gather important details about all the past and ongoing activities of the extremist group PFI.
The intelligence agencies found inputs and evidences that the PFI leaders and cadres were involved in the funding of terrorism and terrorist activities.
Furthermore, PFI used to organise training camps in which it provided arms training and brainwashed people to join banned organisations.
After collecting these incriminating details, the intelligence agencies prepared a dossier. To serve Justice to all the victims of hate and violent crimes, the agencies handed over the dossier to NIA and ED.
As per media reports, the security agencies planned the crackdown Operation for months. They aimed to carry out simultaneous and coordinated raids to dismantle the terror ecosystem. NIA, ED, IB, CRPF and 15 other state agencies were included in this meticulous planning.
In order to achieve synergy and coordination between different agencies and have a tactical response to every scenario, a special multi-agency control room was set up in Delhi.
Over thousands of security personnel were involved in this operation. Reportedly, Union Home Minister Amit Shah had directed his firm resolve to put PFI to task for all its alleged crimes.
The Home Minister Amit Shah constantly monitored the special Operation Octopus. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval supervised the entire Operation against PFI. He along with IB Chief Tapan Deka was present in the control room on the night of the operation.
Midnight multiple Surgical Strikes against PFI
The security agencies had gathered the intel on the activities of PFI and it knew that carrying out raids on offices of PFI involved security risk. So, it planned its operations on the lines of surgical strikes.
To nullify the threats, the security agencies planned a midnight raid on all such locations that posed a threat to the security agencies. The teams raided multiple locations linked with PFI at around 4 A.M.
All the raiding teams returned to their places safely along with all the arrested members of PFI. During these raids, security agencies seized incriminating documents, cash, sharp-edged weapons and a large number of digital devices.
In total, the security agencies raided 93 locations linked with PFI and arrested 106 members of the Islamic outfit. These searches were conducted in connection with 5 cases NIA had registered earlier.
After the completion of raids and arrests, the Union Home Minister Amit Shah held a meeting with NSA Ajit Doval and NIA Chief Dinkar Gupta.
The attendees deliberated on the evidence gathered from these raids and the follow up actions to be taken against PFI and its affiliated organisation SDPI.
Now, there is a high possibility that the extremist group will be banned for good. Notably, in April 2021, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta informed the Apex Court that the Modi government is in the process of banning PFI.
PFI heading the Anti-India forces, Zero-tolerance to any form of Terror
Evidently, several investigations had revealed the sinister role of PFI in Delhi riots and other communal clashes. Amid all the calls to ban the extremist outfit, PFI had the audacity to keep spreading its ugly tentacles in new states. It started committing graver and more sinister acts of terror on a regular basis.
Thankfully, their demonic acts are finally put to an end. The security agencies planned this elaborate operation to completely obliterate the biggest menace to peace and National security.
Making National Security unbreachable
After the advent of social media, ideologies of hatred and violence expanded its tentacles beyond the boundaries of state and nation. For a very long time, this menace of radicalisation was running amuck in the nation unabated.
Finally, communal organisations peddling radicalisation and indoctrination are now facing the brunt of the law. The security agencies have launched these extensive Nationwide campaign to wipe out every trace of radicalisation and terrorism from the face of the world.
Earlier, the security agencies broke the spine of organised crime syndicates and Khalistani terror in Punjab and other adjoining states. After that, the security agencies didn’t waste any moment in dismantling the terror infrastructure of PFI.
Additionally, on 24th of September, the CBI launched ‘Operation Meghachakra’ against online child sexual abuse in 20 states and UTs. The operation aims to end the circulation and sharing of child sexual abuse material online.
Under the operation, searches were carried out at 56 locations in 20 states. These raids are linked with two cases pertaining to online Child Sexual Exploitation Material (CSEM).
The Interpol unit of New Zealand through Singapore had shared the intel which initiated these nationwide raids. The exercise is code-named “Op Meghachakra” as the CSEM was downloaded and circulated through ‘Cloud Space’.

Earlier, in 2021, the CBI had carried out a similar crackdown code-named “Operation Carbon”. Back then it conducted raids at 76 locations across the country. Several accused were nabbed during those raids.
With back to back coordinated and widespread raids on multiple locations in multiple crimes against humanity and India’s interest, clearly demonstrates zero-tolerance policy against anti-India forces.
All these criminal and terrorist organisations may seems to have different names, motives and members but they provide support and cannon fodder to each other and are more intertwined than it appears on the surface.
The relentless actions of security agencies highlight that the agencies are firm in their commitment and will rest only after all the anti-India forces are brought to Justice.
It seems that the agencies will set an example by taking stringent action against PFI and its affiliated organisations and obliterate such anti-India forces from the face of the earth.
