The Social Justice and Empowerment Minister, Satyanaryan Jatiya, presiding over the meeting of the Central Wakf Council here today, expressed concern over the large-scale illegal occupation of wakf property and called upon the council to take action.
Emphasising the need for quick disposal of cases by the Wakf Tribunal, Mr. Jatiya said that legal hurdles could be removed.
Three lakh wakf property have been registered so far. Referring to the education scheme of the council run with the income generated from wakf property, Mr. Jatiya suggested that the council set up a girls hostel in each district headquarter. He said the council had helped 596 non-government organisations for promoting vocational education among Muslims.
The Minister recommended the setting up of a wakf educational pool by the council with contributions from the State Wakf Boards from the money received by them for promotion of education.
