The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) earlier in the day sacked Maulana Salman Husaini Nadwi for his comment over the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid issue. Nadwi had suggested an out of court settlement for the Babri Masjid issue after which he was sacked by the Muslim Law Board. Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas, a member of the AIMPLB while talking to the media said that the board reiterated its uncompromising stand on Babri Masjid issue. He added that Salman Nadwi is still speaking against the Board stand which is why the board was left with no other option and the committee has unanimously decided to remove him.

This move by the Muslim board comes after Nadvi earlier in the month had come out in public to talk about the issue after meeting with Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Nadvi extended his support to the construction of Ram temple and hinted shifting the site of the mosque to settle the politically sensitive issue.

Expelled member of the AIMPLB, Salman Nadvi while talking about the issue said, “There is scope in Shariyat for shifting the Mosque. I am talking about Hindu-Muslim unity & solving this issue. I will be meeting saints in Ayodhya & also have a discussion with Hindu brothers from across India,” as quoted by ANI. While expressing his surprise over the move by the AIMPLB, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar took to Twitter and wrote, “Maulana Salman Husaini Nadwi’s expulsion from the AIMPLB comes as a surprise, as several members of the board have met with me & expressed their commitment to foster amity amongst Hindus & Muslims & to peacefully resolve this issue.”

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board in Hyderabad today while addressing the media said, “Babri Masjid is an essential part of faith in Islam and Muslims can never abdicate the masjid nor they can exchange land for masijd, gift masjid land. Babri Masjid is a masjid and it will remain a masjid till eternity. By demolitioning, it never loses its identity.” It added, “The struggle of re-construction of Babri Masjid continues and that the appeal of the Supreme Court is being fought rigorously.”
