He alleged that the Popular Front of India (PFI) is involved in activities like terror funding, which is a serious issue. In short, it is anti-national activity.
Earlier on Wednesday, protests were held in many places of the country in protest against the arrest of many activists in the raids of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on several locations of PFI.
It has been claimed that in one such protest on Friday, some PFI workers had allegedly raised slogans of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’.
The video shows that the slogan was raised a couple of times when the PFI activists were being bundled into a police vehicle as part of their detention during the protest held on Friday.
