Delhi Waqf Board moves HC against Union govt’s decision to take over 123 waqf properties

The Delhi Waqf Board has petitioned the High Court against the Union government’s decision to take over 123 Waqf properties, Board chairman Amanatullah Khan told reporters on Monday.

Khan asserted that the Waqf Board had owned these properties for a considerable amount of time and that the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs’ Land and Development Office (L&DO) was attempting to “take it forcibly” by evading the law and the courts.

The Ministry recently decided to take over 123 properties of the Delhi Waqf Board, including mosques, dargahs and graveyards, based on the report of a two-member committee.

Khan said the report of the committee was not shared with the Waqf Board and added that a case challenging its formation was already pending in the Delhi High Court.
