The Modi government has declared Maulana Masood Azhar, Dawood Ibrahim, Zakir-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and Hafiz Saeed as terrorists under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Amendment Act (UAPA). A red corner notice has also been issued against them. Jaish-e-Mohammed’s mastermind Masood Azhar is accused of carrying out five terrorist attacks in India. In May this year, Masood Azhar was declared an international terrorist.

Some changes were made to the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA Act). This bill was passed in Parliament in July. According to the new provisions, anyone can be declared a terrorist even personally. Earlier, only terrorist organizations could be declared terrorists. Now after their name comes in this list, these terrorists will also be included in the list personally. Many more notorious names will also be added to this list in the coming days.

The Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) bill was passed by the Modi government at the center in the first session of the 17th Lok Sabha. Under this, the central government has the right to declare a person a terrorist and confiscate their property. Under this bill, the government can identify those people who are involved in terrorist activities or promote terror in any way.

According to the new provisions of UAPA, anyone can be declared a terrorist even personally. Earlier, only terrorist organizations could be declared terrorists. Now after their name comes in this list, these terrorists will also be included in the list personally. Many more notorious names will also be added to this list in the coming days.

During the debate on the bill, in the Parliament last month, Union Home Minister Amit Shah had  said about this bill that it is important to identify terrorists personally, because there have been many cases that when a terrorist organization is banned. So they form organizations with different names. However, the oppositions strongly opposed this bill because they said that this law gives the government the right to declare anyone a terrorist, which can lead to its misuse.
