Moradabad: The All India Ulema and Mashaikh Board on Sunday alleged that Sunnis were being ignored by the state and Central governments.

Addressing a Sunni conference at Company Bagh here, the Board President Syed Mahmood Ashraf said that they were being ignored by the Centre and state government at every level of development.

All the benefits meant for them (Sunnis) were being "hijacked" by the Wahhabis, Ashraf claimed.

He rejected the proposal that a meeting between Sunnis and Wahhabis be organised to overcome the rift.

The Sunni leaders at the conference demanded the removal of Wahhabi Muslims from Wakf board and from all government organisations dealing with Muslim affairs.
