Lucknow, Nov 3 (ILNS) The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court on Monday refused to stay the election of the chairman of Shia Waqf Board. 

The Division Bench of Justice Ramesh Sinha and Justice Vivek Varma passed this order while hearing a petition filed by Syed Waseem Rizvi. The senior counsel appearing for the petitioner submitted that the October 22, 2021 notification has been issued in absolute violation of the provisions contained under Section 14(1)(b) of the Waqf Act, 1995.

On the other hand, Additional Chief Standing Counsel H.P. Srivastava, submitted that the petitioner being a member of the elected board has no right to challenge the notification dated October 22, 2021, and as such, the writ petition at his behest is not maintainable.

The Court issued notice to the respondents. “In order to the normal course of service, the petitioner shall also take dasti (By Hand) summons to serve to the opposite parties. The court directed that an affidavit of service to the said effect shall be filed by the petitioner on the next date of listing. the court gave three weeks’ time to all the respondents to file a counter-affidavit,” and fixed the next hearing on the petition on November 22./ILNS/AP/SNG/
