The Home Ministry of India on Wednesday banned militant outfit Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen saying that it is involved in ‘terrorism’, reported the Press Trust of India.

In a notification, the Home Ministry said the government believes that the Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen (TuM) is involved in “terrorism” as it has committed and participated in various acts of “terrorism” in India and its members are getting financial and logistic support from their handlers based abroad.

The ministry said the Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen came into existence in 1990 with the objective of “liberation of Kashmir” and has been actively pursuing the same by way of “acts of terror”.
