Interestingly, BJP had not fielded any Muslim candidate in the Assembly polls.

It is being said that Raza has been accommodate as the minority face in the Cabinet to bring about a balance. After having come to power in the state with over 300 non-Muslim legislators, BJP has inducted its first Muslim in UP cabinet - Mohsin Raza.

A first-class cricketer turned politician, Raza is not only a huge persona in politics and activism but also well known in Lucknow's social circle, says a News18 report. He has had the odd TV acting stint and even tried his luck at an entry in Hindi films.

He is married to Fozia Sarwat Fatima, who belongs to the prominent Muslim family and is related to the BJP leader and Manipur governor, Najma Heptullah.

A cricketer, socialite, victor of a beauty pageant and an actor, Raza is not a big name in politics, activism or social work but is a common face in the social circuit of Lucknow.

Raza has alo participated in beauty pageants and in 1995 he won the Prince of Lucknow crown. He played a role in the famous Doordarshan serial "Neem Ka Ped". His family has been traditionally loyal to the Congress. Raza too was associated with the party for sometime after he was made chairman of Congress' sports cell. He suspected foul play against him and felt it would be best to leave.

Raza, who joined BJP in 2013, is a spokesman of the saffron party. Then, in 2010, Raza floated his own political outfit by the name of Safipur Vikas Manch but that did not prove to be a successful endeavour.
