Village land row in Tamil Nadu between Waqf Board, villagers intensifies


Share post:


The Muslim Waqf Board is claiming ownership on a complete village in Tamil Nadu’s Tiruchirappalli, called Tiruchendurai. The matter came to the fore when one Rajagopal from the Tiruchendurai village contacted the sub-registrar to sell 1.2 acres of land for his daughter’s marriage. That was when the sub-registrar asked Rajagopal to bring a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Waqf Board.

As per the Waqf Board’s claims, the village of Tiruchendurai, along with a number of other villages, was gifted to the board by Queen Mangammal and some kings. On the other hand, the villagers have said that Tiruchendurai is a Hindu-majority area and a 1500-year-old temple dedicated to Chandrashekhar Swami is situated here.

The villagers have started protesting against the claims made by the Waqf Board. The BJP, also, has registered a complaint in the district collector’s office against the Waqf Board. On the other hand, the Waqf Board, in its communication with the sub-registrar, said that those who wanted to register a deed for any land in the village should get an NOC from the board.

On 15th September, a peace meeting took place at Srirangam between the affected parties, HR & CE Department officials, police, revenue officials, and Waqf Board representative and it was decided that the title deeds in Tiruchendurai village can be carried out as usual.
