Muslim body opposes Waqf Amendment Bill, 2010
New Delhi: Opposing the proposed Waqf
Amendment Bill, 2010 passed by the Lok Sabha, an organisation
working for the protection of Waqf properties on Sunday said that
the Central government should address the concerns of Muslim
organisations before presenting the Bill in the Rajya Sabha.
"A resolution was passed in a meeting here on Sunday
asking the Centre to give due consideration to the opinion of
various Muslim organisations and Ulemas before presenting the
Bill in the Rajya Sabha," All India Waqf Protection Board
(AIWFB) Chairman Shamayle Navi said.
The Lok Sabha unanimously passed the Bill on May 7,
last year and it is currently before the select committee of
the Rajya Sabha headed by Saifuddin Soz.
Muslim organisations are against some provisions of
the Bill and All India Muslim Personal Law Board has already
expressed its opposition to the Bill.
"If the Bill is passed in its present form then Muslim
community will completely lose control over Waqf properties,"
"We will meet leaders of various political parties
including Sonia Gandhi to inform them about our concerns," he
In the meeting it was also decided to oppose the
proposed construction of a club after demolishing a dargah at
Vinay Marg here, Navi said.
