This committee would examine wakf records and the actual local situation of the graveyards. The Board will take a decision in its next meeting taking into consideration the report of this committee. If the report establishes the fact that 3111 sq. yards of land of Abdullah Khan Graveyard is a wakf property, no commercial activity would be allowed and board will protect this property.
