The Supreme Court on Thursday further extended its interim order continuing the ban on Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) till the 2nd week of October, 2008. This is the second time the apex court has extended the ban. The Centre had filed a petition challenging the decision of a Special Tribunal to lift curbs imposed on the organisation. The Court has asked the Centre to place before it the synopsis of arguments and other documents in support of its stand to ban SIMI. The UPA government told the apex court that SIMI, the fundamentalist outfit, is a threat to “peace, integrity and secular fabric of India”. The ruling came after the Centre petitioned for more time for probe.
