Supporting Islamic State Ideology Is Not Waging War Against The Nation, Rules Kerala High Court


October 5, 2018

Modifying the sentence awarded to a woman convicted under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, for ISIS links, the Kerala High Court has held that supporting the ideology of is different from waging war against the nation.

A division Bench of  Justice A M Shaffique and Justice P Somarajan acquitted Yasmeen, a Bihar native of charges under  Section 125 (Waging war against any Asiatic Power in alliance with the Government of India) and Section 39 to 40 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

She was arrested in August, 2016, while attempting to travel to Afghanistan with her child.

Observing that there was nothing to prove she had taken any steps to wage a war against the nation, the court, however, said the accused is guilty for offences under IPC Section 120 B for criminal conspiracy and under Section 38 of the UAP Act for membership of a terrorist organisation.

She was awarded one-year imprisonment for the offence under Section 120 B and three years for the offence under Section 38 of the UAP Act.
