Wakf Board Claims Two Entire Villages with Temples, Temple Lands & Thousands of Acres Property Across Tamil Nadu.

When Mr Rajagopal from Thiruchendurai village near Trichy approached the Registration office to sell his 2 acre land for an emergency, he was shocked to know when they told him he cannot sell his land as the entire village is a Wakf board property.

The Registrar further went on to say that he has to get a NOC from the Waqf Board in Chennai for selling the land. The Registrar also showed him a 250 page letter from the Wakf Board enumerating in detail properties claimed to be owned by it and those who come for registering deed of land listed as Wakf property therein need to get a No Objection Certificate from the Wakf Board office in Chennai.

The entire Thiruchendhurai village, where Hindus are in majority, itself is shown as owned by the Waqf Board! Srichandrasekhara Swamy Thirukovil, the Devar’s deposit, and its properties, including 236 acres of Ayannanjai, are Wakf Board properties. The letter is a shocking revelation of how the Waqf Board has claimed thousands of acres in Tamilnadu as Waqf property.

Srirangam Sriranganatha Swamy Temple Panguni Festival Jeeyarpuram Asthana Mandapam rising across the Srinamperumal Kaveri and the sacred streets are shown as  Waqf Board properties. Thiruverumbur Thrithala hill Temple Prakarams are the properties of the Wakf Board.

The entire village is now agitated and have given a petition to the Collector as they have all the documents of their properties with them. Now how did this ridiculous change of ownership happen? 

Few years ago, in response to a litigation in the court about illegal occupation of water bodies, Temple properties and so-called Wakf board properties, in 2016 the court ordered the government to identify such properties. The  Waqf Board started identifying their properties across Tamilnadu and claimed thousands of acres of properties across Tamil Nadu as Waqf properties. Among them were many villages and the Temple lands. Apart from the villages Thiruchendurai and Kadiyakurichi there are many other such lands including the famous Triplicane Parthasarathi Temple lands claimed by the Waqf board in Chennai.

Conspiracies continue to play out to usurp the very roots of our ancient culture, lands and holy Temples. It is time to break the deep slumber of the Hindus to awaken them about losing their homes and hearths and holy Temples to Land Jihad at the altar of secularism by using legislative tools like, the highly controversial Wakf Act of 1995.
