Ayodhya row: Top cleric Salman Nadvi expelled from AIMPLB

Ayodhya row: Top cleric Salman Nadvi expelled from AIMPLB

The Law Board also said that the bill against instant Triple Talaq passed in Lok Sabha, is unconstitutional and anti-women. "If no action is taken, image of the board will be affected", SQR Ilyas, AIMPLB member, was quoted by News18.

The Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute is a century-old issue between Hindus and Muslims over a piece of land, which is claimed by the former to be the birthplace of Hindu Lord Ram and thus entitled for construction of a Ram Temple.

"Nadvi's approach was against the Board's decision".

According to the Board, the decision was unanimous and not meant to target any particular group. "Now he is a free man".

"However, they always had one answer that Muslims should unilaterally give up the mosque but Muslims can't do this because giving a mosque for worship of anyone other than Allah is "haram" and there is no scope for this in Shariat". It can not be shifted or gifted or sold. Mr Salman Nadvi is not an ordinary person. "As far as the Babri Masjid is concerned, the people who compromise on the masjid issue will be answerable to the Almighty", Owaisi said. He is the executive member of the board.

Maulana Nadvi is expelled today for going against the stand of the AIMPLB.

His remark drew flak from other Board members.

The Shia Waqf Board has said they support the building of a temple at the disputed site. "It is he who said he wanted to leave and left and we accepted it", Jeelani and Faruqui said.

"All the attempts to negotiate the settlements in past have been infructuous and there is no proposal offering settlement without sacrificing the basic tent has ever been put before the board", it said.

The three-day 26th plenary session of the AIMPB began here on Friday.

The cleric's meeting with Ravi Shankar last week had caused a flutter.

"The atmosphere should be good (between the two communities).There is permission for this in the Sharia. As per the Hanbali school of (Islamic) thought, a mosque can be shifted", Nadvi said. There is no mosque there now, it was destroyed in 1992 and now we want to make a new mosque.

"We can shift the mosque".

The AIMPLB on Sunday said there is no change in its stand on the Ayodhya issue as "once a masjid is built, till eternity that will be a masjid".

"However, there was a disagreement", Nadvi had said.

Nadvi's opinion created a storm with the AIMPLB working committee seeking an explanation from him.

The meeting comes at a time when the Supreme Court is hearing a batch of petitions against the Allahabad High Court verdict in the Ayodhya dispute.
