In a latest crackdown, the Srinagar administration has ordered sealing of three properties of banned Jamaat-e-Islami (Jammu and Kashmir) that included two storied residential structures constructed over 17 Marlas of proprietary land at Barzulla, Srinagar recorded in the name of late Syed Ali Shah Geelani, according to Kashmiri news website.

Srinagar District Magistrate Mohammad Aijaz issued an order on Monday that the three properties owned or possessed by the banned JeI are to be notified under the Unwanted Activities (Prevention) Act.

He said that upon obtaining the report from concerned Tehsildar and after perusal of revenue record pertaining to the above properties, it was found that these properties are owned by Jamaat-e-Islami association through their members.

Earlier on Saturday, the J&K State Investigation Agency (SIA) attached 11 properties of Jamaat-e-Islami in Kashmir Valley. Of the 11 properties, three were attached in Baramulla, two in Kupwara, one in Baramulla, and five in Ganderbal. The SIA statement said, “SIA has unearthed further assets of banned Jamat-e-Islami throughout JK worth hundreds of crores of INR. On 17,12,2022 in District Baramulla, Bandipora, Ganderbal and Kupwara, properties at about a dozen locations worth INR hundred crores approximately after being notified by DM Baramulla, Bandipora, Ganderbal and Kupwara on the recommendation of SIA JK, have been barred with restrictions on usage and entry.”

On November 26, at least 11 properties belonging to Jamaat-e-Islami were notified and subsequently confiscated by District Magistrate of Anantnag after a recommendation was made to the court by SIA.

The Jamaat-e-Islami, Jammu and Kashimir was banned in February 2019 by the Union Home Ministry under Section 3 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967. The ban was for a period of five years. The Centre, citing reasons for ban, stated that the outfit had been in “close touch” with militant groups.
