Hyderabad: A city based minority organization Tehreek Muslim Shabban has lodged a complaint with the Telangana State Wakf Board against management committees of five graveyards for allegedly denying land for burial of a Muslim man.
Three days ago a man from Narsingi had died and his family could not get any land for burial at five graveyards in the city. In the end, the family had to bury the man in a burial ground that was meant for other communities. Following the incident, Muslim community leaders across Hyderabad and other parts of the State demanded that strict action should be taken on graveyard management committees for turning away the family, which was in deep distress.
On Wednesday TS Wakf Board chairman Mohammed Saleem said they will issue notices to the concerned caretakers of the graveyard. “The graveyard is not anyone’s personal property. We will not tolerate if anyone turns away the family members of the deceased when they come to seek land for burial,” he said.
Saleem said that across the State, except for a nominal fee, graveyard committee can’t collect any substantial amount from the family members of the deceased on the pretext of allocating land.
Mohd Mustaq Malik, president Tehreek Muslim Shabban demanded that the Wakf Board immediately issue guidelines to management committees of graveyards. There is a need to have standard protocols and guidelines in place so that such incidents do not happen in the near future, he added.
