Without naming Maulana Kalbe Jawwad, minority welfare and waqf minister Azam Khan Saturday launched a scathing attack on the Shia cleric holding him responsible for the protests over election to the waqf board. He said the cleric wanted his relative Kamaluddin Akbar to be appointed as chairman of Shia Central Board of Waqfs (SCBW).
“A religious leader came to meet me on December 27 last year and requested that his relative Kamaluddin Akbar who had earlier served as chairman of SCBW should be again appointed on same post. I expressed my inability, as the election is in the hands of the members of SCBW. Perhaps, he is taking revenge over my denial,” Azam told reporters Saturday.
Azam claimed Kamaluddin Akbar is responsible for the alleged corruption in SCBW.
At present, Jawwad has opened a front against Azam, alleging the minister wants corrupt people to become chairman of SCBW. He had led a protest on the last Friday of Ramzan that resulted in police lathicharge and death of one person.

Azam also released a letter addressed to Akhilesh seeking a CBI inquiry into misappropriation of waqf properties in the last 10 years.
SCBW is going to polls on August 12.
