UP: Waqf members sacked

Uttar Pradesh government has sacked nominated members of Shia and Sunni Waqf Boards in state following allegations of corruption.

In the wake of corruption charges against the Shia and Sunni waqf boards in Uttar Pradesh, the process to dissolve them has started after taking into account all legal aspects.

State Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has also recommended a CBI probe into alleged irregularities. The nominated members in both the board’s have also been sacked.

The role of the chairman of the Shia Waqf Board, Wasim Rizvi, as well as the minister for waqf in the previous Samajwadi Party government, Azam Khan, had come under scanner after the inquiry by the Waqf Council of India.

A report submitted to the UP government by the fact-finding committee of the Central Waqf Council had indicted Azam Khan framing charges of corruption, mismanagement and misuse of office against him.

The committee also recommended that all accused officials be barred from entering waqf offices pending investigation.
