New Delhi: Determined to go ahead with wakf reforms, Minority Affairs Ministry has decided to hold consultations with the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), which recently raised objections against the government decision to register wakf properties.
"A legal team of AIMPLB will visit us and explain why they are opposing the registration of wakf properties. We believe that the registration will better their management but we are open to discuss any issues that the Board has with the move," Minority Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid told PTI.
The minister at the same time maintained that the registration of wakf properties is not new and the government finds nothing wrong with it.
The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), however, is not ready to buy Salman Khurshid's assurances, specially the proposed registration of the waqf land at the time when the bill is totally silent on the status of thousands of acres of lands across the country that are not registered but are certainly property of the Waqf.
They are of the view that the Wakf Amendment Bill 2010 has other shortcomings and without the inclusion of the recommendations made by the Muslim Personal Law Board - especially the status of the waqf lands after August 15, 1947, it would not be acceptable to them.
They even allege that he is being used by a section in the government to push anti-community legislations in the Parliament while the proposals - unanimously believed to be beneficial for the minorities - are gathering dust in the power corridors.
