THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Popular Front of India (PFI) has denied the allegations levelled by  Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan that the organisation is aiming to convert Kerala into a Muslim-dominated state in the next 20 years.

 PFI state president Nazarudeen Elamaram also challenged the Chief Minister to resign if he could not prove the allegations levelled against the PFI. The government should initiate a detailed probe into the activities of fundamentalist forces in the State, he said while addressing a press conference here on Thursday.

 Nazarudeen said that the PFI did not have any connection with the documents that the police claimed to have recovered, on the basis of which the Chief Minister levelled ``basesless allegations’’ against the organisation.

 He also alleged that the weapons and documents reportedly seized by the police in raids conducted on the premises of PFI offices were planted by the Intelligence Bureau and the CPM. It was part of a conspiracy hatched by the IB along with the CPM.

 The wepons were seized from places where CPM got strong presence. In Thaliparambu, a sub-inspector had placed the bombs that were later recovered. A DySP, who initiated a probe into it, was immeidiately shifted, he alleged.

 The PFI leader also said that the organisation strongly condemned the attack on T J Joseph. But it is quite embarassing that a party which had indulged in more brutal acts of vilonce is now condemning the attack on the professor.

 Referring to the allegations that the activists of the banned organisation SIMI were now working with the PFI, he said that if K T Jaleel could work with the CPM and Samadani with the Muslim League what was worng in former activists of SIMI working with the PFI.

 PFI state general secretary P Abdul Hameed was also present at the press meet.
