Delhi Waqf board Imams protest near CM's house citing 'pending salaries'

Delhi Waqf board Imams protest near CMs house citing pending salaries

New Delhi: Several imams from mosques connected to the Delhi Waqf Board protested on Tuesday in front of the residence of the chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, claiming that their salaries had been unpaid for a few months.

An Imam who took part in the protest claimed that it was organised in order to make their voices known by the government authorities.

Last week, Imams and muezzins of the mosques affiliated to the Delhi Waqf Board had threatened to hold a protest outside Kejriwal’s residence over alleged non-payment of their salaries for over five months.

Some employees had claimed their salaries were pending because the grant given to the board by the Delhi government has been stopped by the Department of Revenue.
