UP: Yogi Adityanath govt mulling merging Shia, Sunni Waqf board to make united Muslim body

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Uttar Pradesh government is mulling forming a “UP Muslim Waqf board” by merging the separate Sunni and Shia Waqf boards to prevent “wastage of money”, Minister of State for Waqf Mohsin Raza said.He alleged that both Sunni and Shia Waqf boards are being charged with corruption, and the government will dissolve them soon.Though things are still to be finalised, the minister said the UP Muslif Waqf board when constituted will have members of both Sunni and Shia communities and its chairman will be selected from among them.”The government has got a number of letter and suggestions from various quarters regarding the merger of Sunni and Shia Waqf boards. After which, the government has sought a proposal in this regard from the department concerned.”After Law department’s review of the proposal, the government will consider it and form the UP Muslim Waqf board,” Raza told PTI.He also claimed that all states of the country except UP and Bihar have only one Waqf board.According to Raza, having separate Waqf boards in the state is not “legal”.Quoting the Waqf Act 1995, he said Shia or Sunni should have at least 15 per cent share in total Waqf units for constitution of separate boards, which he said is not the case in UP where the Shias account for only 5,000 units of the total 1,24,000 Waqf units.”There should be at least 15 per cent of share of Shia or Sunni among total Waqf units. In UP there are 1,24,000 waqf units, of which Shia waqf has only about 5,000 units, which is only 4-5 per cent. Legally it should not be like this,” he said.The minister further said that as per the Central Waqf council, there are only 3,000 units of Shia Waqf Board, and that there was no point in keeping a separate Shia Board.”Separate chairman, CEO and other staff incure heavy expenses. It is a wastage of money,” Mohsin Raza said.Reacting to the development, Shia Waqf board Chairman Waseem Rizvi said there is no provision to separate Sunni and Shia boards which were constituted in 2015 for the the tenure of five years.”There is no provision to dissolve the board. After the tenure ends, the government can inquire about number of Waqf units and their income to proceed further,” Rizvi said.Rizvi also alleged that the share of income of Shia Waqf board is over 15 per cent of the total income.However, Chairman of UP Sunni Waqf Board Zufar Farooqui said they welcome the initiative of merging both the boards into one.But with that said, he wondered why the state government is changing a decision also taken under the BJP rule in 1999 by then Chief Minister Kalyan Singh.”In 1999, when the BJP was in power and Kalyan Singh was the Chief Minister he constituted separate Shia and Sunni Waqf boards. Question arises whether the present government does not endorse the previous BJP government’s decision,” Farooqui asked.

BJP lashes out on Oppn. over ‘subjudice’ Babri Masjid issue

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> Lashing out on the opposition over allegations of criminal conspiracy and political vendetta, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) claimed that if resignations were to be made based on a chargesheet, ‘the entire Congress Party would have resigned in its own tenure.’ Speaking to ANI here on Thursday, BJP leader Shaina NC, while addressing the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya as a ?subjudice? issue, asserted that nothing would be done without the complete consensus of the stakeholders involved in the matter. ?There will be a conclusive judgement based on examining the evidence. There are sentiments of lakhs of Indians involved in the matter. Any decision will be taken legally following all the adequate guidelines of the Supreme Court,? she said. Earlier on Wednesday, the apex court allowed the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) appeal in the Babri Masjid demolition case and restored criminal conspiracy charges against BJP supremos L.K. Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti and Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh among others. However, Kalyan Singh, who was the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh in 1992, enjoys constitutional immunity as the Rajasthan Governor and can be tried only after he leaves office. Defending his party veterans, BJP leader Rahul Sinha dismissed claims of conspiracy, stating that the building of the Ram Temple was in line with the demands of Indian nationals. ?These allegations are baseless. Nobody has been accused so far; the matter is under investigation. There is no political involvement in the matter,? he said. The apex court ordered that two separate cases in Lucknow and Raebareli against Advani, Joshi and Bharti and unknown ‘kar sevaks’ shall be brought together in one trial. The Supreme Court also directed the trial court in Lucknow to commence the proceedings in four weeks and hear the matter on a day-to-day basis so as to complete the hearing in two years.

Even BJP, whose stakes are high in the UP polls, has

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>skirted the issue though the party even recently used to emphasise on giving recognition to regional aspirations, which, in other words, meant decentralisation through smaller states. The BJP-led NDA had carved out Uttarakhand, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh from UP, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh respectively, giving rise to speculation that it might favour further division of the largest state. But, its 2017 UP poll manifesto is silent on the issue and speaks only about setting up Bundelkhand and Poorvanchal development boards if voted to power in UP. All the more interesting is the fact that Ajit Singh’s RLD, which used to sing the Harit Pradesh tune during every election, is silent on the issue which even five years ago was central to campaigning by almost all political parties barring SP. Besides RLD, Raja Bundela’s Bundelkhand Congress, Kalyan Singh’s erstwhile Jan Kranti Party, Amar Singh’s now defunct Rashtriya Lok Manch and Ayub Khan’s Peace Party — all pitched for division of the state — but most of them drew a blank in the Assembly elections in 2012. While Mayawati’s strength dropped to 80 seats from 206, RLD got nine – one less than the previous tally, and Peace Party could get only four. On the other hand, Samajwadi Party, the only party to oppose the demand, stormed to power with a landslide victory, bagging 224 of the 403 Assembly seats. Analysts said one reason could be the fact that people took pride in being residents of one of the country’s biggest state and did not wish to give up that identity.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
