Outlook terms wakf misuse as the biggest land scam in Indian history

Malegaon: Even after receiving flaks from almost every corner of the world including the Supreme Court in India for their inept attitude towards the Muslim community in Gujarat, the government officials in the state are not ready to learn any lesson. And it seems they are determined to continue with their agenda to marginalise and traumatize the Muslims living in Gujarat.


The latest in the series is building a road in the middle of a graveyard in Dahod with human remains still sticking out.


"The graveyard situated on Godhra Road in Dahod and being used by Muslims from a long time have been bulldozed by Dahod Municipal Council", said the local residents in a letter to Minority Affairs Minister and Charge de affairs of Wakf Salman Khursheed.


"Because of the demolition and digging, the bones of body parts are moving loose in open", said the letter dated October 8, 2009.


The property is registered under the Wakf board law and belongs to the Muslim community. Still Dahod civic body without any prior intimation run down the bulldozer over the graveyard to build a road, said the residents in the letter.


Local residents had already sparred part of the wakf land for irrigation purpose and to help the local farmers. Also, the court had recently stayed on any construction work on the said site. "But ignoring even the court order, the civic body demolished the graveyard for the construction of the road", the residents said in the letter.


The residents further complained in their letter that the people residing near the graveyard are also creating havoc against the Muslims. "People residing the graveyard are desecrating the graves by throwing cowdung and tiding the cattle inside the graveyard", the residents alleged in the letter to Salman Khursheed seeking immediate action from the minister against the culprits.


Copies of the letter has also been sent to National Human Right Commission, Nation Commission for Minorities, State Human Rights Commission, Central Waqf Board and State Waqf Board appealing for immediate intervention to stop the provoking and sensitive action by Dahod Municipal Council.
