Mangaluru, June 13 2018: The District Wakf Welfare Committee which had complained to the Wakf Board against an "unauthorised" building on a Wakf land at Bunder in Mangaluru, has informed that seven persons have been served notice in this regard and have been asked to appear for hearing at the State Wakf Board on June 19.
Informing this to reporters here, Committee leader and Human Rights activist Haneef Saheb Pajapalla said the illegal construction has come up on the 69 cents land on survey number 670/1 near the Golikatta Bazar in Bunder. He further alleged that the building has been constructed spending crores of rupees by a person with whom the Mutavalli of Bunder Kachi Jumma Masjid had entered into an internal understanding.
The land has been registered in the name of Wakf Board in 1968 and though it was a property of the Wakf the Mutavalli had claimed that this was his ancestral property, Haneef said. He has also rented out the rooms adjacent to the Kachi Masjid for lower rates through an internal adjustment with tenants, alleged Hameed.
