This news was also put up some time last week. In Kerala, I saw posters of PFI for a protest demonstration scheduled to happen later this month. It was said to be a "doubt clearing" demonstration, in which PFI would prove that they are no into terrorism
. So looks like even they know that a ban is mostly on its way.
The ban may also have an impact on the Akhila @ Hadiya case
, in which the Supreme Court themselves had ordered an NIA enquiry of alleged religious conversion and involvement of PFI people in the same. PFI folks were also actively involved a protest march in front of Kerala High Court in which threats were issued to the judge, and even talks about a "Badr War" was raised.

Minor correction. CPI in Kerala are a bunch of dinosaurs who actually are a non-entity in politics. Their cadre is mainly intellectuals or old people who generally do not pick up fights with any one. Their vote share also is poor when compared to CPI(M). The murder culture is mainly part of CPI(M), with the Northern districts of Kerala being their major cadre base. CPI today is actually playing a second fiddle to CPI(M) in Kerala government. And at times they also do a Shiv Sena
trick on the CPI(M). All this when CPI was the senior party, and CPI(M) was a split from them.
