The leader of Raza Academy, Sayyad Noori, told that we met CM Uddhav Thackerey and expressed our emotions on CAA and NRC. In response, CM Uddhav Thackerey urges that everyone is the citizen of India, and no one has a right to abolish someone's citizenship.
However, many nationalist people express on social media against Shivsena's Chief Uddhav Thackerey's meeting with leaders of the notorious Muslim organisation Raza Academy. The organisation had organised a so-called rally in Azad Maidan in August 2011 that had turned into violent riots. The objective of the rally was to oppose the indigenous Bodo community's stand on illegal migrated Bangladeshi Muslims to Assam.
The rioters from Raza Academy had vandalised the much-hallowed Amar Jawan memorial situated outside the CST. The riots had caused approximately Rs 2.72 crores worth of damages to various public properties. The Raza Academy denied paying compensation. About 65 people and 40 security personnel were injured in the riots.
Raza Academy is an organization of Indian Sufi Muslims that promotes Islamic beliefs through publications and research.
