The J&K Waqf board has come under the Central Waqf Council under the J&K Reorganization Act following the abrogation of Article 370.
Since then, the Central government has amended or repealed more than 200 laws applicable to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) through executive orders, citing powers vested with it the J&K Reorganisation Act.
It includes the Waqfs Act, 2001, which was established for governance and management of Muslim shrines and properties in the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir. Along with the abrogation of Article 370, the Waqfs Act was also abolished, and the Indian Waqf Act of 1995 is proposed to be implemented in the newly carved out territory.
All 133 Muslim mosques and shrines, with an annual income of ₹26 crores and 9,500 kanals of land, in Jammu & Kashmir, is now governed by the Central Waqf Council, headquartered in New Delhi.
