International Islamic University compensates villagers

ISLAMABAD: Over 412 residents of the Lunda Mastal village, who have lost their land because of an International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) expansion project were given compensation cheques on Thursday at the IIUI H-10 campus.

The cheques were distributed during a ceremony attended by IIUI President Dr Anwar H Siddiqui, CDA Member (Estate) Brig (r) Asad Muneer Durrani, CDA Member (Administration) Shaukat Ali Mohmand, Islamabad Deputy Commissioner (DC) Syed Sajjad Hussain Bukhari and others.

CDA officials assured villagers that the CDA would also give them plots on alternative land within a month. The villagers in turn agreed to vacate their properties within the new IIUI premises.

Dr Anwar H Siddiqui thanked villagers for agreeing to vacate the area. He said the land had been acquired for construction of faculty blocks and hostels and would not be used for private purposes. "The residents of Lunda Mastal are contributing to a great cause," he said.

The compensations were made on the orders of the Supreme Court in accordance with market value of the property. Dr Siddiqui said President Pervez Musharraf had approved a Rs 100 million grant for the university with which the compensations had been made.

He also thanked CDA Chairman Kamran Lashari and other officials for expediting the land evacuation process.

CDA Member (Estate) Asad Muneer Durrani said Pakistan was proud of the university as it hosted students from over 57 countries, adding that the CDA would continue assisting it.
