Srinagar, Sep 19: The J&K Waqf Board has ordered a complete ban on the ‘dastaar bandi’ of people, especially political leaders, at the mosques and shrines managed by it.
However, the ‘dastaar bandi’ of people for religious achievements will be allowed with prior permission from the board.
“Whereas, J&K Waqf Board directly manages the affairs of major Shrines and Mosques across the UT of Jammu and Kashmir as per the provisions of the Waqf Act, 1995 (as amended in
2013), and thousands of
Ziyarats/Masjids/ Khanqahs/Darul Ulooms/ Graveyards, governed by the provisions of the Waqf Act, are yet to be directly administered by the J&K Wagf Board,” read an order, issued by the board.
