Ominous activities of waqf usurpers
Good that the Central Waqf Council under the Ministry of Minority Affairs has decided to take deterrent and timely action against the Waqf mafia who are usurping huge chunks of land with the connivance of the state waqf bodies and local authorities. The activities of these Waqf mafia has become so ominous that recently in Allahabad they had threatened the revered Imam-e-Juma of Shia Jama masjid in Allahabad behind whom the entire community offer prayers with guns and forced him to sign documents.
The said mafia had earlier planned with the connivance of the local waqf board to convert a functional grave yard at Karbala , Allahabad into a shopping mall.
The Imam-e-Juma Maulana Hasan Raza had opposed the illegal construction of a shopping arcade done by demolishing the front of the historic Imambara and led a protest rally against the activities. That the shopping arcade was illegal was clear when the Allahabad Development Authority sealed the complex. The Imam-e-Juma was threatened. An Fir was also lodged but no action was taken by the authorities, community members said.
The Minority Affairs Ministry has taken due note of the incident and has directed the state government to take due and immediate action.
Frightened by guns and foul languages, the shocked Imam-e-Juma of Allahabad was hospitalised in the ICU at a local hospital. The entire community however stood behind the Imam-e-Juma and decided to take on the might of these waqf land usurpers. Videos against those who have usurped the land and their activities have become viral.
Prominent Shia religious leader Maulana Kalbe Jawad of Lucknow also visited Allahabad and expressed shock at the development.
Paradoxically the event in Allahabad has come at a time when Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is progressing with his yatra to showcase the development in Uttar Pradesh during his tenure and on the other hand there is an utter lawlessness where even religious clerics are threatened with guns and abuses and the culprits go scot free. The administration sleeps over the matter , the Imam-e-Juma has said.
