Tamil Nadu Land Dispute Walk
Tamil Nadu: Disputes between mosques and shrines are getting darker day by day. While the controversy over Varanasi’s Gnanavapi Masjid continues..lately another controversy has started in Tamil Nadu. Now let’s find out.. Yes, another controversy has started in Tamil Nadu. A fire broke out between BJP and Waqf Board. But this time the lands of Chandrasekhara temple of the Chola period have come up. The Wakf Board’s announcement that they own all the lands belonging to 18 villages created a rift between the two groups. BJP is objecting to the announcement of the Waqf Board. It is questioning how the lands belonging to the ancient temples will belong to the Wakf Board.
But the Waqf Board says that they have donated lands for the development of temples and they cannot register the lands without their permission. Alarmed by this dispute, the Collector of Trichy issued orders to collect all the details related to the lands. Chandrasekhara Temple is currently owned by Tiruchi Srirangam Temple. Thiruchenthurai village and 18 surrounding villages have thousands of acres of land. The Waqf Board says that all those lands are theirs. It has been decided to take the permission of the Waqf Board to sell the plots in those villages. As a result, the Waqf Board is saying that the lands that have been there for generations are not theirs, but they belong to us, and the locals are getting tensed. It is being questioned that Tiruchenthurai village on the banks of river Kaveri is 1500 years old, but Islam came only 1300 years ago, then how can it be said that those lands belong to the Waqf Board. As a result, the District Collector ordered a survey on those lands, and there was excitement to see what would be revealed.
