In Parliament, Member of Parliament (MP) Manoj Kotak demanded a ban on a controversial Islamic Mumbai based organization named Raza Academy. He alleged Maharashtra Government for not taking action against the Raza Academy regarding violence in Nanded, Amaravati and other areas in Maharashtra on November 12. He further alleged that Hindu houses and shops were badly damaged during the violence instigated by Raza Academy.
Raza Academy is the same organization that was responsible for the Azad Maidan riots in Mumbai in 2012. During those riots, members belonging to the Muslim community vandalized public properties and media vans. Women constables were also molested during the riots.
MP Manoj Kotak is elected to the Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Parliament of India from Mumbai North East.
