The Indian Government extended the ban on the LTTE today for violent and disruptive activities which are prejudicial to the integrity and sovereignty of India. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) renewed its 2014 notification to declare LTTE as an unlawful association for another five years.
MHA said that LTTE continues to adopt a strong anti-India posture as also continues to pose a grave threat to the security of Indian nationals.
It also said the diaspora continue to spread through articles in the Internet portals, anti-India feeling amongst the Sri Lankan Tamils by holding the Government of India responsible for the defeat of the LTTE and such propaganda through Internet.
MHA said that even after its military defeat in May, 2009 in Sri Lanka, LTTE has not abandoned the concept of Eelam.
MHA said the remnant LTTE leaders or cadres have also initiated efforts to regroup the scattered activists and resurrect the outfit locally and internationally.
