Meanwhile, the NIA is protesting on the streets against the raid Popular Front. In a statement, the organization complained that they are being harassed unnecessarily. The government is using central agencies to quell protests. They have no connection with any militant organization. However, this claim of PFI is not as strong as analysts think. Because, earlier this organization is accused of communal violence in several parts of the country. They are accused of providing financial support to jihadists and proselytizing.

It should be noted that PFI is alleged to be behind the communal violence in Bengaluru in 2020. They are also accused of inciting violence in Uttar Pradesh against the Citizenship Amendment Act. In 2021, an eviction campaign in Assam claimed that the PFI was involved in instigating attacks against the police by squatters.
