The dargah of 14thcentury saint Khwaja Nasiruddin Mahmood Chirah Dehlavi has landed itself in a controversy. As reported by a Committee constituted by the Delhi Government the caretakers sold a portion of the Dargah to a property dealer in collaboration with the Waqf Board members. The issue cropped up when the locals interfered in the construction of two rooms outside the dargah. The caretakers, on the other hand, say that the property sold was privately owned by them, and was not a part of the Dargah. The Waqf Board and the caretakers have been in a constant tussle over the ownership of the Dargah property before the Waqf Board itself got dissolved in 2016.
