Hyderabad: AIMPLB expels Salman Nadwi who suggested shifting of Babri site
All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) meeting continued for the 3rd day in Hyderabad on Sunday. Maulana Syed Salman Husaini Nadwi was expelled from AIMPLB during the meeting. Nadwi, who met Sri Sri exploring the Ayodhya solution, did not participate in the third day of the meeting.
Reiterating his stand on the Babri Masjid controversy, Nadwi, a prominent scholar, had said that he still believes that an out-of-court settlement is possible and it should happen.
Speaking to ANI, Qasim Ilyas said,''Committee announced AIMPLB Board will continue with its old stand that Mosque cannot be gifted, sold or shifted. Because Salman Nadwi has gone against this unanimous stand, he has been expelled.''
On Friday, the apex body of Muslims in India rejected a proposal by its member Maulana Salman Nadwi who reportedly supports the construction of Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya, ruling out any compromise on Babri Masjid.
After AIMPLB's executive meeting in Hyderabad on Friday night, it announced that there is no change in the Board's stand that Babri Masjid is a mosque and when a mosque is constructed at a place, it remains a mosque till the final judgement that is ''qayamat".
The land dedicated for masjid cannot be sold, gifted or in any way alienated, AIMPLB said in a statement.
