Two hurt in tiff over appointment to Dargah post

The injured are Zakir Hussain and Abdul Kabeer Bhukari . The row erupted following the appointment of Ashraf Ahmad as the ad-hoc president of the Dargah and the Central Jumma Masjid on Friday. It is alleged that a group supported by Ashraf Ahmad was behind the assault.

Following dissolution of the management committee of the Dargah, an election was held to choose 50 members for the new committee, 10 each from five zones such as Alekala, Melangady, Kotepura, Mukkacheri and Kallapu Kariya.

However, the meeting of new committee convened on Friday to nominate five office-bearers which concluded in dispute. Amidst the confusion, Ullal Assistant Qazi Syed Koorath Thangal, who presided over the meeting declared Ashraf Ahmed as ad-hoc president, which was not liked by other group. Former president Kanachur Monu said “the Friday’s meeting concluded at 5.30 pm and I left the place after the meeting. Qazi’s decision is final. I do not have any interest in the post of the President.”
