Delhi Waqf Board irregularities; Amanatullah uses religion to shield himself


The AAP legislator Amanatullah Khan has played dirty politics when he is exposed in front of the public for the ‘irregularities’ in ‘Delhi Waqf Board’. When the AAP legislator from Okhla found himself in trouble, he said that he is being targeted because he is a Muslim.

In fact, Khan had appointed his relatives and friends in the Delhi Waqf Board and when the matter unearthed, he has come out with the Muslim card to protect himself.

Lt Governor Najeeb Jung has dissolved the Delhi Waqf Board constituted by the Kejriwal government and the matter referred to the CBI related to “irregularities” in the board.

Jung declared the reconstitution of the board, quashing all appointments made by its incumbent Chairman. A committee has formed to review the legality and propriety of all decisions and action taken by the Board after its constitution in March 2016 and directed to submit the report within a month.

The matter had come into the limelight when the two members of the board had resigned and revealed about the ‘corruption’ along with the irregularities in the appointments.

As per the information, the appointment of the CEO of the board, Mehboob Alam was made without obtaining the approval of the competent authority.

Khan was unanimously elected as the new chairman of the reconstituted Board by its members in March this year.

The Board faced charges of corruption in appointments made under the tenure of Khan, and the ACB launched a probe into the alleged “recruitment scam” on a complaint of one Mohammad Mustafa in September.

However, Khan has been deliberately diverted the issue by playing the tactic that he is Muslim and that’s why he is being targeted. Khan is enjoying a good reputation as he is facing a number of criminal cases. The anti-terrorist wing of Delhi police has been monitoring him since a long time.
