This is weird : SIMI ban lifted

SIMI is now an officially acceptable organization.

Given how many blast related articles this org’s name has appeared in – this is extremely weird. Perhaps they were just following the law literally – as they should – or maybe the govt decided they’d be easier to track if they are official, and record whatever they do (they hardly fizzled out just because of the ban). But even so – almost sounds like an endorsement. While I’m loathe to tie community specific org’s to specific activities, SIMI is highly suspect and this does not sound right.

Edit: On the other hand, there is a silver lining, however disconnected to the main story. It does show that the executive cannot influence the judiciary directly, and that can only be a confirmation for our democratic health. Not to imply that I agree with the judgment itself, but this aspect’s certainly positive.
