They decided to place this vision in the Shivajinagar area of Bengaluru. Then these visionaries went a step forward. These visionaries decided to help the majority community Muslim community in Shivajinagar. Today Shivajinagar as an area has become more prosperous and CEZM has probably been one of the catalysts.
