The chairman of the Waqf Board, Izhar Alam, who was present in Ludhiana on Friday, said that decisions of the Shariyat Panchayats should be considered final in matters relating to Muslim marital and property disputes.
"The judiciary delays justice in many cases and hence Shariyat Panchayats should be given powers to solve such cases of muslims," Alam said, adding that a one-day Muslim conference will be organised on Sunday to discuss such issues and problems of Muslims.
"Even after 25 years in Punjab, Muslims have not got their voting rights and they are unable to get many facilities as citizens of the state," Alam said, adding that there was a shortage of graveyards in Punjab and the number is not adequate as per the population. "We will be discussing all the issues, social and political and will later meet Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal."
Alam said that after this conference, they will also be meeting other religious organisations so as to apprise them of their issues.
