HC pulls up Wakf Board for not complying with order

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday pulled up a charitable society and the Delhi Wakf Board for failing to comply with an earlier order,allowing only 10 devotees to offer namaz at the site of an illegal mosque.

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday pulled up a charitable society and the Delhi Wakf Board (DWB) for failing to comply with an earlier order,allowing only 10 devotees to offer namaz at the site of an illegal mosque.

The mosque was demolished by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) in January.

The court asked the Noor Charitable Society,which was managing the razed mosque and the DWB,to file its affidavits,along with photographs showing that they were neither occupying the DDA land nor violating its earlier order. The alleged violation was brought to the court’s notice by the Jangpura RWA.
