Not following the waqf signs in the Quraan

Q: Is it permissible for someone who has some understanding of the meanings of the Quraan Shareef to not follow the waqf signs (e.g. ط in the IndoPak mushaf) and make waqf where he wishes (provided he does not make a big error)?

A: If he knows what he is reading and he does not join at the wrong places then it is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
