Find names to oversee work: Tribunal — The Hindu com|Lawyers lack expertise on architectural conservation says AKTC

The Wakf Tribunal here on January 25 directed the counsels for the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) and Mohammed Jaferuddin to discuss and form a proposal to find suitable names for the High Powered Supervisory Committee to oversee the ongoing works at the Qutub Shahi Tombs.

Justice Bande Ali, Chairman of the Wakf Tribunal, orally passed the order after the AKTC’s counsel Shafeeq Mohajir argued that there is no reason for two lawyers to be on the committee, as they lack expertise on architectural conservation.

In his argument, which lasted for over two hours, Mr. Mohajir pointed out that it would be better to have experts on the committee, like the AKTC’s CEO Ratish Nanda, under whose supervision works are going on at the site currently. In a previous order, the tribunal had ordered for the committee to be constituted which would include counsel for both sides; in this case Jaferuddin’s counsel Mohammed Ilyas, and the counsel for the Department of Archaeology.

The case was filed in 2007 by Jaferuddin at the tribunal, seeking to declare the agreement dated May 16, 1977 between Mukarram Jah and the then Governor of Andhra Pradesh, giving custody of the Qutub Shahi Tombs to the State government as illegal, null and void.
