Hyderabad: Although there were many violations of Waqf rules during the past two months due to intervention of higher officials, but an unusual matter came to fore in connection with extension of term of mutavalli of famous Dargah located at Nampally.
Generally the term of mutavalli is extended when his term ends or is about to end. But the Competent Authority of Waqf Board who is scared of formation of new Waqf Board issued orders of extension of term of Dargah mutavalli 7 months before the expiry of his term in order to help persons close to him. The orders were issued so secretly that the officials of Waqf Board are also unaware of the fact. The copy of the orders was not even sent to the officials who should be sent the copy as per rules.
It is said that the action was taken keeping in view the likely difficulties in extension of term after the formation of new Waqf Board. It must be noted that the case of the said Dargah is pending with Waqf Tribunal.
