Srinagar, 06 December: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Sunday said the statement of BJP leader that waqf boards will be established in the Jammu and Kashmir for the first time since independence is a miscarriage of facts and history and reflective of his sheer ignorance about on the subject matter.
Here is a person who holds no influence over the Muslims of the country; he is supposed to represent Muslims in Modi Government, ironically before representing the minorities in Modi government he is instead representing BJP before minorities, said Party’s Additional Spokesperson Sarah Hayat Shah while taking exception to the mistruth mongering of Naqvi on established on Waqafs boards in Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. “If an award was being given to the most incompetent minister in BJP led government, no one could come ever closer for minority affairs. So far Naqvi has done nothing to inspire minorities in particular Muslims of the country. He could be best described as minority appeaser, the task which he has miserably to deliver on. Spreading mistruth about establishment of Waqaf Bords in J&K, and Ladakh should not be seen in isolation. It is a large game plan to hoodwink the Muslim community living elsewhere in the country that BJP was attending to their issues. The reality remains that Jammu and Kashmir is the only place in entire sub-continent where Waqaf properties have been effectively consolidated by the successive NC led Government. The Auqaf e Islamia was in itself established by Sher-e-Kashmir contrary to what Naqwi is suggesting ignorantly or purposively. It is laughable to see people no less than the level of union minister brazenly murdering history,” she said.
The said minister, she said has not been able to represent the concerns of the Muslim community in union cabinet, the discontinuation of Hajj subsidy is a point in case, where he failed to contest the government decision. “Unfortunately we only saw him in forefront in lashing out at Tableegi Jamaat and malign them. “The Muslims of the country saw how he raised a bogey of “Talibani Crime”. The image Naqvi created of Tableegi Jamaat was an act of stocking communal disharmony. He has miserably failed to act as guardian of minorities in the country,” she said.
She said the drastic changes brought by National Conference in Kashmir, were not just confined to polity and society as such but the changes were also felt in other spheres of society like Aquaf Properties. It was Sheikh Sahib who took no time to consolidate all the Muslim properties and establish Auqaf e Islamia soon after independence. “I don’t hesitate to say that the disposition of waqaf properties in J&K speak for itself, and does not require certificates from a person who failed his own community on every front,” she said.
