Maulana Tauqeer Raza, who has been involved in numerous scandals as a result of his utterances, has finally been sanctioned by the Yogi government. The Maulana has been charged under multiple articles of the law. In reality, IMC leader Tauqeer Raza led a rally on Sunday in protest of the detention of Nupur Sharma, the former BJP national spokesperson. After that, the bareilly kotwali police had filed a case against him.
The rally was said to have been limited to 1500 individuals. However, the organisers gathered tens of thousands of people. On the appeal of IMC corporator Farhat Khan and mahanagar president Makhdoom Beg, City Magistrate Rajiv Pandey permitted the protest on Sunday, June 19. A crowd of more exceeding 1500 persons will not be allowed at Islamia Ground, and corona protocol will be followed, according to the authorization.
According to police, the IMC leaders broke the terms of their permission. The demonstration drew tens of thousands of participants instead of the expected 1500. On behalf of city magistrate Rajiv Pandey, a charge has been filed in Kotwali under Section 188 against IMC district president Farhat Khan and Mahanagar president Makhdoom Baig. At the same event, Maulana Tauqeer Raza, the head of the Ittehad-e-Millat Council (IMC), encouraged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah to read the kalma and learn Islam. At the same time, the Maulana had requested that he convert to Islam.
