The Delhi Waqf Board on Friday released Rs 50 lakh for the repair and renovation of houses and shops damaged in the recent communal violence in northeast Delhi. The Waqf Board will help the riot-affected people in repair of their houses and shops, irrespective of their faith, said Delhi Waqf Board chairman Amanatullah Khan.

The Board has prepared a list of affected people whose shops and houses were damaged in the violence or gutted in arson. The work has started with helping the affected people in Tyre Market of Gokalpur, said an official of the Board.

The entire market, with around 225 shops, was gutted in arson, the official said.

The Waqf Board has also started repair work to restore 19 mosques vandalised during the violence last month.

“The repair work started with Jama Masjid in Ashok Nagar. An advance amount of Rs 5 lakh has been released by the Waqf Board for it,” he said.
