Waqf Board and its agenda

Today we will talk about one of the heinous Acts (Waqf Board) passed by the Congress Government in 1954, the Congress and its Elite politicians, hatred towards Hindus has many phases and has been proved a number of times.

Waqf Board

Jawaharlal Nehru Govt passed the Waqf Board Act in 1954 which was later centralized and created a Waqf council in 1964.

In August 1947, the partition of British India marked the conclusion of three centuries of colonial rule, resulting in the establishment of two sovereign nations: India and Pakistan, which included West and East Pakistan, now known as Bangladesh however the central government Congress decided to hand over the land of Muslims who decided to move from India to Pakistan to Waqf board.

The real intention of Congress and its elite leader was yet to come when they changed the Waqf board rights, as per Times of India Waqf boards were given unlimited rights to acquire lands after which there was a significant increase in the Waqf board lands

Total Property as per 2023 report

As per The Indian Express Officials have reported that in India, there are approximately 870,000 Waqf properties spanning an extensive area of 940,000 acres. As per the Waqf Assets Management System of India, graveyards constitute the highest number of Waqf properties, succeeded by agricultural lands, mosques, and shops.

Illegal Occupancy of Waqf Board

The country currently possesses up to 30 Waqf Boards, which have illegally encroached upon numerous properties and temple lands, exhibiting a consistent operational pattern in the majority of instances. Typically, Muslims commence their practice of namaz on these lands, subsequently leading to the establishment of villages around them, following their declaration as religious sites. Consequently, the facilitation of land sales or leases in proximity to these illicit settlements becomes more convenient.

Waqf board under current BJP Govt

Delhi BJP leader Ashwini K Upadhyay contested specific sections of the Waqf Act, of 1995, arguing that these provisions bestowed exclusive privileges upon waqf properties, thereby disregarding the equal status of trusts, mutts, akharas, and societies. The Act bestowed unrestricted authority upon waqf boards to designate any property as waqf property.

The petition was then rejected by the bench led by Justice JY Chandrachud stating that it could not direct parliament to enact a new law, and also said that they could not make a publicity stunt for this by reading out the notes written by Ashwini K Upadhyay.

In States like Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Shri Yogi Adityanath has clearly ordered the district administration to conduct an Investigation into lands owned by the Waqf board in Uttar Pradesh and the process will soon begin.
