state of Wakf lands
terms wakf misuse as the biggest land scam in Indian history:
A vast majority of people in the country believe that if the Wakf
properties - donated by Muslim rulers and individuals across the
country, are properly utilized, they can do wonders for the
upliftment of the Indian Muslims. Time and
again the safety of the Wakf lands is demanded from the
Muslims Are The Rightful
Owners Of Wakf Properties
Minorities Welfare Minister Ajay Vishnoi today informed the Assembly
that alleged irregularities in the Wakf Board would be investigated
in two months and action taken against those responsible.
Raising the issue
through a calling attention notice, ex-minister Arif Aqueel
(Congress) said, ''the Board is a den of irregularities. An attempt
was made to mislead the House.''
Aqueel said that a letter signed by some Board members was submitted
to the Board Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The missive
stated that the Board's policy decisions should be taken after
discussion in the Board's regular meetings.
the Chairman and CEO are bypassing rules and taking policy
decisions. No meeting was conducted after May 31 and that itself is
a violation. Besides, the Board employees who obtained a High Court
stay on their expulsion are being insulted by not being assigned
work as per their stature,'' the Member said.
Aqueel fired a volley of supplementary posers.
This is not the first time that
irregularities in the wakf land are coming to the fore in India. In
fact, the irregularities in wakf land are so rampant almost
everywhere in the country that analysts termed them as the biggest
land scam in Indian histroy.
At the same time, it is also said that
if proper utlilization of the wakf land and properties are planned
it would serve to the Indian Muslims to a very great extent.
