Adv. Renjith Sreenivasan, a leader of the Other Backward Class (OBC) wing of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), has been allegedly killed by members of a Muslim organization named Popular Front of India (PFI) in Kerala. Several allegations have been reported against the controversial organization PFI regarding the killings of Hindu leaders and their involvement in anti-national activities. However, no action has been taken by the State. Renjith had contested the assembly elections on a BJP ticket in 2016.
CP Radhakrishnan, BJP National Executive Member, said that PFI has murdered three BJP-RSS leaders in the last two months. He said, “He (Adv. Renjith Sreenivasan) was hacked to death in broad daylight. I urge the Kerala Police to take the strictest action against these terrorists and protect our karyakarthas."
The Popular Front of India (PFI) is an extremist Islamic organization formed in 2006 and has often been accused of involvement in anti-national and anti-social activities. Several members of the outfit have been convicted in many cases in murders, riots, money laundering, forced conversions, terrorism, breach of Constitution etc etc. Since its formation, its members have been allegedly found involved in anti-national activities. Some of them were convicted. Many leaders and local activists have demanded to impose a ban on the organization. However, the Kerala administration, currently under the Communist regime, has not taken any action so far.
