Daijiworld Media Network – Mangalore (SP)
Mangalore, Mar 1: The post of Ullal Qazi, which had remained vacant after the death of the previous Qazi, Tajul Ulema Assayyid Abdurrahman Al Bukhari Ullal Tangal, has been filled.
Son of the late Qazi, Assayyid Hamid Fazal Koyamma Tangal Madani Koorat, popularly known as 'Koora Tangal' has been chosen to succeed his father to the post of Ullal Qazi.
A unanimous decision in this connection was passed at the special annual general body meeting of the members from 28 Mohallas falling under Ullal Dargah. Addressing a press conference here on Friday February 18, president of this body, U S Hamza, said that the new Qazi will take over the position on March 13.
The press conference was attended by general secretary of Ullal Dargah managing committee, U T Illyas, vice president, Ashraf Ahmed, secretary, Mohammed Ashraf, and various other office bearers and members.
It is learnt that Jamaats from Kotepura and Melangady have opposed the choice of the new Qazi. They want either the son-in-law of Tajul Ulema, Atakoya Tangal, or Udupi Qazi, Bekal Ibrahim Musliyar, to inherit the position of Ullal Qazi. On Friday evening, these two Jamaats met separately, and decided to appoint a new Qazi for their respective jurisdictions, it is gathered.
