Hurriyat Conference (G) has expressing its anguish over misappropriation and misuse of Wakf funds saying its assets and sources are being utilized by ruling parties for staging “election drama and for their personnel gains”.
A Hurriyat (G) spokesman in a statement said Wakf belongs to people and as such should be handed over to true representatives of nation.
“Its authorities have always misused its assets for their political gains,” he said.
The spokesman said sources have revealed that instead of providing any relief to deserving, destitute and widows, Wakf funds are being utilized by influential and blue eyed persons. “Its authorities are involved in embezzlement of funds,” he said adding resources are invested for staging “election drama” in the state.
While decrying over its mismanagement, Hurriyat (G) spokesman said Waqf needs to be handed over to people and their genuine representatives.
“We are keeping a close vigil, and if needed we will come with full detail about misuse and bungling in Wakf,” he added.
