Waqf Misuse, most systematically managed daylight robbery in India

New Delhi/Malegaon: After Jamiatul Ulema Hind and All India Muslim Personal Board, one more prominent Muslim outfit on May 24 raised apprehensions over some clauses of the Wakf (Amendment) Bill 2010, saying they "blatantly" ignore the recommendations of Sachar Committee.

The Bill, which was passed in Lok Sabha and now awaiting Rajya Sabha's nod, proposes a series of changes in the way Wakf properties are managed across the country.

"The Ministry of Minority Affairs has overlooked and ignored vital recommendations of the Sachar Committee as well as the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) on the functioning of Wakf boards," Syed Zafar Mahmood, President of Zakat Foundation of India, said.

He said compulsory Wakf surveys recommended by the JPC have been made optional in the bill, while suggestions of inclusion of all post-Independence cases of Wakf for survey have also been dropped.


Earlier, Jamiatu Ulema-e-Hind president Maulana Arshad Madani and Gen Secretary of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) Maulana Syed Mohamad Wali Rehmani have also raised similar concerns over the proposed wakf bill.


"Instead of imposing something without consultation, you should present in front of the community leaders and organisations what you intend to achieve by bringing in the Waqf Development Authority", Maulana Syed Mohammad Wali Rehmani said in a letter to Minister of Minority Affairs Slaman Khurshid.


Following the same line, Maulana Arshad Madani had asked asked the Government to abandon its plan of bringing Waqf land under National Minorities Development and Finance Corporation.


"We will not accept any such flawed bill which does not give an assurance of complete protection of 4 lakh acres of Muslim 'Aukaf' or Waqf land spread all across the country and which does not make sure that revenue generated through the Waqf land will be used only for the benefits of Muslims," he said.
