AIMPLB to take up legal battle to ‘protect Waqf properties’
In a statement, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board said, “…The Waqf Act was prepared and approved after a lot of hard work. It has provisions to safeguard Waqf properties from being sold. But efforts are being made from several quarters to make changes to these provisions, which can threaten the safeguarding of Waqf properties.” It emphasised that a campaign will be launched to protect the Waqf Board properties and that it will fight legally in ‘full capacity’.
