The Wakf properties are meant exclusively for Muslims. After the publication of the report of Central Parliamentary Committee now it is the responsibility of the government to remove illegal encroachments from the Wakf properties. These demands were made by Senior MLA in the Maharashtra Assembly Basheer Moosa Patel Qasmi. He was replying to the leader of the opposition Ram Das Kadam, who had demanded a CBI enquiry into the illegal encroachment of Wakf properties. When Mr. Qasmi rose up to speak, the Speaker of the House tried to stop him. However, Mr. Qasmi continued saying that it was related to his community and he must speak up. He put forth the demand to the government to take every possible step to return these properties to the Muslims as they are the rightful owners of them.
Mr. Kadam also alleged senior leaders of the Congress of having been involved in encroachment of Wakf properties. He also asked for a legal action against the culprits, including the then Chief Minister. The Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) headed by the Deputy Speaker of Rajya Sabha K. Rahman Khan had reported that the Wakf Board of Maharashtra has sold off huge lands. Mr. Kadam wanted severe action against the Chairman of Maharashtra Wakf Board.
