ISLAMABAD - The Senate Standing Committee on Interior led by JUI-F Senator Talha Mahmood Tuesday again put the long-standing issue of giving administrative control of the capital's mosques on back burner as it remained indecisive either Ministry of Religious Affairs should run their affairs or Auqaf Department of ICT Administration should continue with its responsibility. The committee that met at the Parliament House discussed in detail the role of ICT Administration in the payment of utility bills of the mosques falling in the jurisdiction of Islamabad Capital territory (ICT) and the non-release of utility bills' arrears by the Ministry of Finance to the tune of Rs 9 million electricity and Rs 5.5 million natural gas charges. Leader of the House in Senate Syed Nayyer Hussain Bokhari and Senators including Sughra Imam, Haji Adeel Ahmed, Dr Abdul Malik and Tahir Hussain Mashhadi were the participants of the committee, besides the representatives of Capital Development Authority (CDA), Islamabad Capital Territory Administration (ICTA) and Ministry of religious Affairs attended it. The Ministry of Religious Affairs and the local Auqaf department of ICTA, both have been reluctant to take the administrative control of mosques falling in the Capital Territory for many months due to their heavy liabilities in terms of unpaid bills and pays. Currently, Auqaf Department of ICT Administration is running the affairs of these mosques. During most of the in-camera proceedings of the committee, the participants remained indecisive on the issue.
