The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court has clarified that the expression ‘senior Muslim advocate’ is not confined to a designated senior counsel for the purpose of nomination to the Tamil Nadu Waqf Board.

Justice G.R. Swaminathan observed that the expression ‘any senior Muslim advocate’ happening in the proviso to Section 14 (1 )( b)( iii) of the Waqf Act was not restricted to the designated senior counsel.

It can for that reason only imply the senior amongst the Muslim supporters and can not be restricted to the Muslim supporters designated as senior supporters under the Advocates Act, 1961, the judge stated.
