Masarat Alam’s Anti-India Propaganda

The organization, led by Masarat Alam, interim chairman of the hardline faction of the All India Hurriyat Conference, is known for its “anti-India and pro-Pakistan propaganda,” according to the Home Ministry notification. It highlighted the leaders’ involvement in raising funds, including from Pakistan and its proxy organizations, for unlawful activities.
