Human Right activist alleges misappropriation in Waqf property-1

Mangaluru: Human Right activist Haneef Saheeb Pajapalla on June 13, informed that the State Waqf Board had issued notice to seven persons for the illegal construction of a building on Waqf property in the Bunder area here.

Addressing a press meet in a private hotel here, Haneef said, "The property of Kutchi Meman Masjid belongs to Wakf Board. Nayeem Patel presently serving as Muthawalli of the masjid should discharge the duties as per the provision of the Wakf Act and protect the properties of Wakf. Instead, he has given the property of Kutchi Meman Masjid Golikatta Bazar in Bandar to private parties."

Haneef Saheeb also accused that Naeem Patel who is Kutchi Meman Muthuwalli of the masjid had given a "No Objection Certificate" for construction of a building in 69 cents of the property which belongs to Waqf, without following any rules and regulation of the board. The Waqf Board also issued a show-cause notice, to Mutuwalli in this regard. It has also filed a case in the court in this regard, Haneef said.

Haneef Saheeb also said that a complaint had been registered with the MCC regarding the matter. He also warned any party that purchases the property or rents it.

Advocate G Naveen and Umar Farook were present during the press meet.
