Rising intervention of government in the activities of Waqf Board has put question mark on Protection of Waqf properties. Recently the government has relieved Jalaluddin Akber as competent authority of Waqf Board and appointed Secretary Minority Welfare Syed Omer Jaleel in his place.
According to reliable sources government has acquired several valuable Waqf lands for road widening and other works but when Waqf Board tried to get the compensation, the government is pressurising not to insist on the compensation.
Recently Waqf Board has identified over 40 such Waqf lands for which government has to pay Rs 400 Cr. to Waqf Board as compensation.
