Three days after the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) demolished an Eidgah at Palam Vihar, members of a mosque committee on Friday asked chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda to ensure that the land should be transferred to the Wakf Board.

Huda officials had demolished the boundary wall of the Eidgah constructed on a 2.75-acre plot in Palam Vihar on Monday. The plot was acquired by Huda in 2007.

The mosque committee members said that the chief minister met with the Chauma Masjid Intezamia committee members and assured them that the land will be returned to the Wakf Board.

“As per the procedure, the Wakf Board will have to send an application to the deputy commissioner in this regard. The CM will have to move it in the cabinet, following which the cabinet will approve the land to be de-notified from Huda and returned to the Wakf board”, said Suhel Khan, member, Chauma Masjid Intezamia committee.

On the other hand, the area resident welfare association president, Sunil Yadav, said that the land should be put to use for the residential purpose and ensure peace in the locality.

“We have already informed the district administration and police department that the residents want peace in the locality,” Yadav said.

Rohtash Jhangu, vice president of Palam Vihar RWA, said, “The land belongs to Huda and it should be allowed to make use of it.”
