Aysha Renna, who hails from Kondotty, Malappuram, came to the limelight while spearheading the efforts to mobilize Islamist youth during the Anti-CAA protests in 2019. Various media portals, including journalist Barkha Dutt, referred to Aysha Renna as a ‘Shero‘ (She+Hero) and was hailed for ‘saving’ Shaheen Bagh protestors from the action of the Police. Afreen Fatima is the daughter of activist Javed Mohammad. She is currently the prime accused of the violence which broke out in Prayagraj following protests against BJP spokespersons Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal’s objectionable comments against Prophet Muhammad. Earlier on Sunday, bulldozers were moved to the residence of activist Javed Mohammad, a.k.a. Javed Pump. The Uttar Pradesh police have identified him as the main conspirator behind the violence that erupted in the city on June 10. In a video, his other daughter, Afreen Fatima, claims that the Prayagraj police detained her father without a warrant or official letter.
