Ahmedabad: Reconstruction of the 17th century tomb of Urdu poet Wali Gujarati, which was demolished during Gujarat riots has been postponed at the eleventh hour due to non-availability of “police permission”. According to sources, a temple had been constructed at the demolished site which was situated at Sabib Bagh area. Later, the temple was also demolished and a road was built there.
All Gujarat Minorities Association was to hold a meeting with the Society for Promotion of Rational Thinking for reconstruction of the tomb and it had also got permission of the police. But the programme was postponed as the police withdrew permission 11 hours before the scheduled time. The management said that the police not only prevented them from holding the programme but also dispersed the people who had assembled there. 
Member of National Minorities Commission AM Sethna who was to lay the foundation stone said that Narendra Modi had promised to re-construct the destroyed religious buildings, adding that he did not know as to how Modi would keep his promise.
Meanwhile All India Muslim Personal Law Board has accused Modi government of misleading the people regarding re-construction of 280 religious buildings. 

New Delhi: National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued orders to the ministries of defence and home affairs to pay Rs 3 lakh as interim relief to Ameena Khatun whose husband disappeared while he was in the custody of armed forces. Ameena Khatun of Manipur registered a complaint on July 25 with Manipur State Human Rights Commission (HRC) that armed forces had arrested her husband Tayyib Ali Khan who was coming to Imphal from his village on a scooter. Since then he had not been traced, she said.
Director general of police, Manipur, at the instance of State Human Rights Commission (HRC), had sent messages to various security squads including Assam Rifles to trace Tayyib Ali. Assam Rifles told that the police had not arrested any person by this name following which the state HRC forwarded the case to NHRC. NHRC asked for a report from the ministries of defence and home affairs.
Ministries of defence and home affairs did furnish a report but NHRC found it unsatisfactory and contradictory to what the DGP Manipur and Assam Rifles had said that no person by the name of Tayyib Ali was arrested by them. Hence it ordered the ministries to pay compensation to her.

Rampur: While conducting a survey of 670 bungalows and houses of Raza Textiles, Rampur, the authorities have identified 334 bungalows and houses which are illegally occupied, including the bungalow of national general secretary of BJP, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. Officers are in a fix as to how to get this bungalow vacated. Two officers are said to have been called to Lucknow in this regard. However, it is not known as to what orders have been given to them.

Deoband: An 8-point memorandum was recently presented to Hafiz Muhammad Siddiq, former minister and MP and present member of the Executive Committee of Darul Uloom Deoband by a newly formed organisation Milli Majlis.

The Majlis expressed concern over the fact that communal elements were conspiring against this noble seat of learning. At the same time it lauded the Darul Uloom authorities for taking positive preventive steps.

Sitapur: Senior poet Insha’allah Khan Taskeen Sitapuri of Uttar Pradesh was attacked by some unidentified person. Taskeen sustained deep injuries in his left hand.

Haldwani: Muslim intellectuals and members of several social organisations in Uttaranchal have asked the state government to pay attention to their problems and to give them proper representation in government jobs. They accused the government of neglecting Muslims and their problems.
During a meeting in Qidwainagar recently, Dr Mahmudul Islam said that even after two years of the formation of the state, the government had neither formed a Haj committee nor a waqf board.

New Delhi: Laulak, a book on seerat (biography of the Prophet Muhammad {pbuh}) is a praiseworthy effort to remove the misconceptions from the minds of people regarding the concept of jihad in Islam.
Laulak, written in verse by eminent Urdu poet Chandar Bhan is greatly appreciated by Muslim scholars. Comparing the book with Shahnama-e-Islam, Maulana Akhlaque Hussain Qasmi said that the author had done a very good job in applying eloquence and laconism to his writing skill.
