Mumbai: Raza Academy has sent a protest letter to Saudi King Abdullah, to change his government’s behavior towards Sunni pilgrims who pays respects at the holy grave of Prophet Muhammad in Madinah. Raza Academy in its protest letter has attracted King Abdullah’s attention towards a regular feature in which religious Mutawwa Police of Saudi Arabia harass Muslim pilgrims at the two holy Harams in Makkah and Madinah. Two Indian Muslims were recently harassed and detained by this police on false and flimsy grounds. According to the letter by Raza Academy, “the two Indian pilgrims were just paying tributes at the holy places, the Mutawwa argued with them and arrested them without any reason”. Raza Academy has demanded their immediate release.
