UMI meeting on Waqfs 

The Milli Gazette Online

New Delhi: A meeting of United Muslim of India was held on 13 June at Shahi Sunehri Masjid, Chandni Chowk, under the presidentship of Maulana Mohammad Furqan Qasmi. In his presidential address, Maulana said that the department and offices of Auqaf have undergone a welcome change after the appointment of the new chairman. In addition to increasing the salaries of employees of the Auqaf department, the new chairman has started taking steps for safeguarding Auqaf properties which were under illegal occupation for years. At the same time rents of Auqaf properties have also been increased, thereby increasing the income of Auqaf. Maulana Furqan said that the old demand of UMI is being fulfilled to a great extent and we are grateful to Delhi government as well as to Waqf Board chairman, Chaudhary Mateen Ahmad. 

Chief guest, Maulana Rizwan Akhtar Qasmi, praised the political, social and Milli services of the UMI and the efforts of the Waqf Board to safeguard its properties. He suggested that for their encouragement, special programmes should be held in which activities of people doing good work in society are praised. This, in turn, will motivate others to do useful work. Journalist M. J. Ansari, while praising the efforts of the present chairman for safeguarding the properties of the Auqaf, said that such steps will not only increase the income of the Waqf Board but its objectives will also be fulfilled and problems and difficulties of Muslim widows and orphans will be solved to a great extent. He said that by such efforts, Delhi Waqf Board will prove a model for waqf boards of other states. 

On this occasion a resolution was passed in which Delhi government was requested to enact a law for increasing the rents of Auqaf properties which have remained static for decades. It was also demanded that people or organisations which are illegally occupying Waqf lands and properties should be compelled to vacate them, as DDA has been doing, and those properties should be restored to the Waqf Board.
