New Delhi, Mar 14 (UNI) The struggle of power in Jamiat-Ulama-i-Hind took another turn today after president Maulana Arshad Madani sacked his nephew and general secretary Mahmood Madani, who along with his supporters had removed his uncle from the top party post recently.

The Jamiat-Ulama-i-Hind, a socio-religious organisations of Muslims in India which played a pivotal role in the freedom struggle of India, split on March 6 when some working members removed president Arshad Madani for alleged anti-party activities. They then appointed Qari Mohammad Usman as the caretaker president.

Now in a tit-for-tat decision, the Jamiat Executive Committee nullified all the decisions taken by Mahmood Madani and his supporters and sacked him from the general secretary's post.

It appointed Maulana Mohammad Ahmed in his place.

The executive committee also formed a three-member panel to supervise the election process in states where the polls have not been held so far.

It later passed a resolution, condemning the ''nefarious activities and unlawful actions taken by a few self-motivated individuals'' who tried to break the 100-year-old organisation.

''We sincerely believe that the crisis had been deliberately created by such elements on the instance of fascist and communal forces working in India and outside for the sole purpose of weakening Islam and Muslims throughout the globe,'' said the resolution signed by several members of the working committee.
