Centre should reconsider its decision: Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah oppose ban on Jamaat-e-Islami

Terming the ban on Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) an act of "vengeance" by the Central government, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said it would have "dangerous consequences". Talking to reporters in Srinagar, Mufti said, "There is an atmosphere of vengeance in the state, especially in the Valley after JeI youths and leaders were arrested. JeI is a social and political organisation. It is an ideology and I do not think you can imprison an ideology by arresting some activists of the outfit. We totally condemn it."
