The publication of report in media, regarding the allotment of 3 acre Waqf land of Dargah Hazrat Husain Shah Vali located in Manikonda to the Sikh Gurudwara Sahibji of South India, has shaken Minority Welfare Department out of slumber. After the issue of notification by Deputy Collector and Tahsildar, Rajendra Nagar Mandal On November 20, the Revenue Department secretly made preparation to allot the Waqf land to Gurudwara. It is said that on the notice of Deputy Collector no objection was received on which he recommended in favour of the allotment and sent the file to District Collector Rangareddy.
The matter was in the phase of allotment, when Siasat Daily exposed the dealing, which shook Minority Welfare Department and Waqf Board out of slumber and representation was made to District Collector and Chief Commissioner Land Survey.
It is said that the District Collector has put the proposal regarding allotment of land on hold, while authorities of Sikh Gurudwara, in order to prevent any controversies in future, have withdrawn their claim on the land.
Secretary Minority Welfare Syed Omer Jaleel contacted authorities of Sikh Community and told them that the land in question is a Waqf land; he also briefed them about the details of the case pending in Supreme Court regarding the Waqf land, following which Sikh Community leaders have decided to seek government land on some other place.
On the other hand Chief Executive Officer Waqf Board Mohammed Asadullah contacted Joint Collector and Deputy Collector Rangareddy and cleared Waqf Board’s stand against the land allotment. He said if the allotment is done Waqf Board will send legal notice.
