Passing over HC, the Govt. appoints new Incharge CEO Wakf Board

Amid much brouhaha over the absence of a permanent CEO Wakf Board, the government has appointed Vigilance Officer  Khaja Moinuddin as Incharge Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Telangana State Wakf Board (TSWB) who will take charge of his office on Friday.

The newly appointed Incharge CEO Khaja Moinuddin succeeded Shahnawaz Khasim who was repatriated by the Wakf Board a few months ago as the feud reportedly escalates between the Chairman and the official who are having differences of opinion on several agendas of the board. Subsequently, the board management divided into groups – one represented by the Chairman while the other favours the Incharge CEO Shahnawaz Khasim.

The fallout between the Chairman and the Incharge CEO has reportedly brought most of the affairs in the wakf board to a grinding halt. Apart from board staff, the people approaching the institution found it difficult to get their work done smoothly due to the unending feud among the officials at the helm of affairs at the Wakf board.

Meanwhile, a writ petition was filed in the High Court seeking direction to Wakf Board for an early appointment of the permanent CEO. While hearing the case, the High Court has reportedly issued an order to Telangana government asking it to appoint a permanent CEO within four weeks.

However, amid the months-long brouhaha, the Secretary Department of Minority Welfare Ahmed Nadeem has issued an order on January 10, appointing Khaja Moinuddin as Incharge Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Telangana State Wakf Board.

It is said that contrary to the orders issued by the High Court, the state government has issued a revised order explaining that the newly appointed Incharge CEO Khaja Moinuddin will hold his office until the government appoints a permanent official on the post. However, the order issued by the government is being presumed as contempt of the High Court’s order which had earlier granted four weeks of time to the government for the appointment of a permanent CEO in Wakf Board.
