Temple constructed on Waqf land in Nizamabad, KCR performs special puja

Telangana government has made lofty claims regarding protection of Waqf properties in the assembly and outside, but not only that the temple has been constructed on the Waqf land in Nizamabad but Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao recently visited the temple and performed special puja in it. Restlessness prevailed among Muslims of Tamapur village of Nizamabad district over the issue. The area comes under Banswada assembly constituency which is represented by Agriculture Minister Pocharam Srinivas Reddy.

On the complaint of locals, Chief Executive Officer Waqf Board Mohammed Asadullah sent Waqf inspector to inspect the land and directed to submit the report at the earliest. Pressure is said to be built on the Waqf inspector and other minority leaders to maintain silence over the issue.

Locals made a complaint that the land under survey no 228/1 is Waqf under Dargah Hazrat Maula Ali and has record in the Waqf Board, however a new temple named Telangana Tirumala Devasthanam has been constructed on the land under the supervision of state minister. Dargah is present on a high mountain and its surrounding land is attached to it. The Dargah is said to be 200 years old. Agriculture minister Pocharam Srinivas Reddy invited chief Minister for special puja in the temple on April 2. Chief Minister announced 390 acre land and 10 Cr for construction of temple in Telangana on the lines of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam. Now the question arises whether the land announced to be provided for temple is also Waqf?
