MUMBAI: The Mumbai unit of India’s Bharatiya Janata Social gathering is urging Union House Minister Amit Shah to transform the historic Jinnah Home in Mumbai to a cultural centre, The Stateman reported Wednesday.

The report, citing a BJP chief, mentioned that the social gathering desires to transform the Jinnah Home into the South Asia Centre for Arts & Tradition (SACAC).

“I met Amit Shah ji and requested him to convert the Jinnah House into a SACAC, as was decided in 2017, and there is a board put up there to this effect,” mentioned BJP metropolis chief  M P Lodha.

The request was made after the Centre had introduced that it might public sale greater than 9,000 evacuee properties left behind by individuals who went to Pakistan after the Partition of India in 1947. 

It must be famous that the Jinnah Home was handed over to the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) a number of years in the past, per the report.

Positioned at Mumbai’s Malabar Hill, the Jinnah Home was the residence of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founding father of Pakistan. Per the report, the Jinnah Home was stamped as an ‘Evacuee Property’ and was leased out to the British Deputy Excessive Commissioner between 1955-1982.
