Documentary film on restoration of Wakf properties released

The properties that are donated for the welfare of the Muslim community are known as Wakf properties. But in general such properties are encroached by the individuals, corporates and even Government departments. Sachar committee report has clearly pointed out that none in the Muslim community will be poor if the wakf properties are maintained and utilized properly. Popular Front of India has been carrying out awareness campaigns and demonstrations to safeguard and restore the wakf properties.

As part of its campaign, Popular Front has also produced a Documentary film on the subject. The Documentary film CD release function was held at Tirunelveli on November 8.

He also said that the duty of the board is not just maintenance of masjids and kabarastans. But the board should take steps to safeguard the properties and ensure that the same is also used for the welfare of the community. He also mentioned some incidents in which Popular Front has restored the wakf properties.
