Wakf Amendment Bill 2010: All India Muslim Personal Law Board accuses Union Minister Salman Kursheed of conspiracy

Syed Akbar
Hyderabad, April 24: The All India Muslim Personal Law Board on Sunday accused Union Minister for Water Resources and Minority Affairs Salman Kursheed of "conspiracy" in getting the Wakf
Amendment Bill 2010 passed in the Lok Sabha.
"Yes, we see a conspiracy behind the passage of the Wakf Bill in the Lok Sabha. The haste with which the Minister got the Bill passed in the lower house supports our conspiracy charge," AIMPLB official
spokesperson Abdul Raheem Qureshi told reporters here.
Briefing mediapersons on the two-day deliberations of the working committee meeting of the Board which concluded here on Sunday, Abdul Raheem Qureshi said there was no need to pass the Wakf Amendment Bill 2010 in haste, unless there was some conspiracy against the Muslim endowment in the country.
"Normally Bills are not taken up on Fridays in the Lok Sabha. The agenda listed was private members Bills. But the agenda was postponed to introduce the Wakf Bill. On Friday afternoon members are generally busy leaving for their constituencies. When the Bill was taken up for discussion Muslim members were away for Friday prayers. The minister rushed through the Bill and ensured that it was passed," he alleged.
He said the Bill needed certain changes related to spending revenue from Wakf properties and unregistered Wakf institutions. The revenue generated from Wakf institutions should be spent for purposes for
which they had been endowed by donors. The Bill facilitates anyone to lay claim on the unregistered Wakf properties. This provision should be deleted.
Asked about the legality of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, Abdul Raheem Qureshi they need not secure government's recognition. "We are a private registered body. We have every right to take up
issues of the community," he pointed out.
Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi said the Wakf Bill had been referred to select committee by the Rajya Sabha with Saifuddin Soz as the chairperson.
