in Kerala: 18 suspected SIMI activists arrested

Kerala Police arrested 18 suspected activists of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) in Binamipuram in this district. Acting on a tip-off that SIMI activists were conducting a meeting at an auditorium in Binamipuram, the place was raided and the suspected activists were arrested, police said. They also seized certain literature enumerating SIMI's activities in India, and pamphlets and books printed in Pakistan. All the arrested were in the late 20's and were from different parts of the state, police said.

As per the the TV news (Asianet) they were carrying Map of India Without Kashmir!
I am amazed by their audacity (Look at the smile on their faces)for holding such a meeting at such a time. Or is it the feeling that they are safe and Immune? That wont be surprising considering the current PDF Government is elected with the support of Ultra Fundamentalist Jamaat E Islami(ex Mother of SIMI)

The police said they recovered ``seditious'' material including SIMI pamphlets and a book, "Mass Resistance in Kashmir — Origin, Evolution and Options." The Islamic Foundation based in Leicester in the U.K published this book authored by Taheer Ameen of the Institute of Policy Studies, Islamabad. The book was borrowed from a local library.
