During the meeting, Minister Khan expressed concern about certain district officials allegedly having indirect ties to encroachers, emphasizing the importance of thoroughly studying court cases and attending court proceedings. He sternly warned that officials found neglecting their responsibilities would face strict disciplinary actions. The minister underscored the sacred nature of the work, cautioning officials against exploiting their positions within the Waqf department for personal gain.

In an effort to fortify Waqf properties and protect them from encroachments, Minister Khan has called for proposals recommending the construction of compound walls where necessary. To streamline the recognition of a property as Waqf, he proposed the installation of a singular form of compound. The minister’s emphasis on safeguarding Waqf properties reflects the government’s commitment to preserving these assets for their intended purpose.
