Hyderabad/Mumbai: All India Muslim Personal Law Board's senior member Salman Hussaini Nadvi on Saturday asked the government to probe a speech by Khalilur Rahman Sajjad Nomani in which he talked about the "Rohingya style massacre of Indian Muslims".
"It's a very serious matter. I want the government of India and also Prime Minister Modi to take a note of it and order a probe so that the facts come out", Salman Nadvi, who is in the news since last three days because of his "Ayodhya Peace Formula", said.
Salman Nadvi was referring to a speech made few months before by Khalilur Rahman Sajjad Nomani, who is spokesperson of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), in which he said "arms and weapons" have been distributed in every part and district of the country.
Sajjad Nomani also claimed that "preparations are on for a Rohingya and Myanmar style massacre of Indian Muslims".
In his speech, Nomani also claimed that he had visited many RSS training camps and can "swear that a conspiracy to kill Muslims has indeed been hatched".
"I ask the government to probe who has distributed arms and weapons in every part and district of the country. It’s a serious matter and should be probed in depth" Salman Nadvi reiterated while talking to India TV.
"I also ask the RSS people to provide details of its camps where Sajjad Nomani is a regular visitor. The RSS should also make public the names of its members with whom the spokesperson of the Muslim personal law board has close relations", he said.
Salman Nadvi said he had also raised the matter during the working committee meeting of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) which is underway since Friday in Hyderabad.
He said he demanded from the Muslim personal law board to ask its spokesperson about his relation with the RSS but the board members were not ready to talk on the matter.
According to Salman Nadvi, as soon as he entered the meeting hall, some of the board members started asking him to withdraw my proposal about Ayodhya dispute. “I however said that board spokesperson Khalilur Rahman Sajjad Nomani’s claim about the massacre of Indian Muslims is a more serious matter and hence should be discussed first”, he said, demanding dissolution of the Muslim personal law board.
“The Muslim personal law board was never a representative body. As on today it has also lost its credibility. Hence it should be dissolved, and a more representative and accommodative Shariah Application Board should be formed”, he said.
Regarding his Ayodhya Proposal, Salman Nadvi said there are provisions in the Islamic Shariah to shift a mosque in certain situations.
“After the court order, the Babri Masjid has already been shifted from its original place. We only want to shift it a little far away where Muslims can offer prayers peacefully and we can also have an Islamic University adjacent to it where students from different religions can come and learn about Islam”, he said.
Meanwhile, the Muslim personal law board has constituted a four member committee comprising of board’s president Syed Rabey Hasani Nadvi, President of Jamiat Ulema Arshad Madani, Wali Rahmani and Khalid Saifullah Rahmani to decide what action is needed to be taken against Salman Nadvi.
The disciplinary committee was formed after members of the board demanded that Salman Nadvi, member of the board since its establishment in 1972, should be sacked.
The committee is expected to submit its report today and a decision is expected to be announced by today evening.
