Muslim board sacks cleric for suggesting Babri can be shifted

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has ruled out any possibility of an out-of-court settlement in the Babri Majid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute. On Saturday, at the general body meeting of AIMPLB, numerous 500 participants said Nadvi should be removed from the board, the report added.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar tweeted, saying, "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".

AIMPLB general secretary Moulana Wali Rehamani addressed the meeting today where he reiterated the board's stand that "once a Masjid is (always a) Masjid" and that the board was ready for negotiations based on "fair justice and equal honor", according to a release.

AIMIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, who is also a member of the board, briefed reporters tonight on the proceedings of the second day of the 26th plenary of the board here.

The news of the meeting in Bengaluru came as a shock and disappointment to the Muslim delegates from all over the country who have gathered in Hyderabad from the annual session of the Board.

The Law Board also said that the bill against instant Triple Talaq passed in Lok Sabha, is unconstitutional and anti-women.

"Babri Masjid is an essential part of faith in Islam and Muslims can never abdicate the Masjid nor they can exchange land for Masjid or gift the Masjid land".

"The struggle for reconstruction of Babri Masjid continues and that the appeal of the Supreme Court is being fought rigorously, " the Board said.

AIMPLB president Maulana Syed Mohammed Rabey Hasani Nadvi presided over the plenary. The next day, Nadvi said he would not remain in the board. "The board therefore accepts his decision and declares that he is no longer a member of the board", Jeelani announced. Nadvi was widely condemned for making the suggestion after his meeting with the Art of Living founder Ravi Shankar, a known supporter of the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said that an alternate piece of land should be offered for the construction of a mosque.

"About Babri masjid, it was clearly said that once a masjid is built, till eternity that will be a masjid". He opined that any ruling by the Supreme Court, which is now hearing final arguments in the politically sensitive case, would be partisan and further divide the two communities.
