Hyderabad: Two members of Darsgah Jihad-o-Shadat Shahadat (DJS) were taken into custody when they reached Ministers’ Quarters to seek an appointment with home minister Mr. Mohammed Mahmood Ali to discuss the demolition of Amberpet Masjid. They were released in the evening before the Iftaar.
DJS secretary Advocate Mohammed Khalid confirmed that their two members Mr. Shahnawaz Khan and Mr. Mohammed bin Umar were taken into custody when they tried to meet the home minister. He condemned the police action.
Meanwhile, senior BJP leader Mr. G. Kishan Reddy alleged that MIM was creating a law and order problem in the city over a piece of land in Amberpet by claiming the existence of a mosque, which was demolished by the GHMC authorities for road widening. He claimed that there was never a mosque on the land and government records showed it was a private property for which GHMC paid compensation.
He said there were shops on the acquired land facing the road and the house behind it. Replying to a question, he said, “We have no objection in reconstructing the mosque in case it is proved that a mosque existed there.”
He also criticized the functioning of the Waqf Board and said it “utterly failed” to protect the Wakf properties. He asked whether Wakf Board authorities were sleeping, when a case was pending before the Court and GHMC was paying compensation. “Why are they now claiming the property?”
He demanded that state government make its stand clear on the issue. An all party delegation would meet Chief Secretary Mr. S. K. Joshi over the issue, he added.
Police authorities are also trying to pacify the Muslims. A meeting was convened by the police at Madarsa Tajweed ul Quaran, Azad Nagar. DCP East Zone M. Ramesh, Addl. DCP T. Govinda Reddy and ACP Malakpet M. Sudarshan and others spoke to the local youths and asked them to cooperate with the authorities.
