Who were the Razakars?

The Razakars were the paramilitary volunteer force of the nationalist party in the Hyderabad state under Nizam’s rule.

They were established in 1938 by the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen leader Bahadur Yar Jung and expanded significantly during the leadership of Qasim Razvi around the time of India’s independence.

Following the integration of erstwhile Hyderabad into the Indian Union, Qasim Razvi was initially imprisoned. Later, he was allowed to move to Pakistan, where he was granted asylum.
