Hyderabad: Reiterating its stand that the Babri Masjid land can never be abdicated, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on Sunday said it endorsed the decision of Salman Hussaini Nadvi to quit the board.
The decision was taken after the four member committee constituted on Saturday submitted its report to the board today evening. Member of the AIMPLB Zafaryab Jeelani announced the committee’s decision.
“Babri Masjid is a Masjid and it shall remain a Masjid till eternity. By demolishing Babri Masjid, it never loses its identity as a masjid. And according to Shariah, it always remains a Masjid," the AIMPLB said.
“This is board’s apt repeated position and Salman Nadvi had always agreed to this. Now he has taken a position which is contradictory to the stand of the Muslim personal law board in general and the Muslim community in particular.
“While taking a contradictory position, Salman Nadvi also said he does not want to remain associated with the board. The board therefore accepts his decision and declares that he is no longer a member of the board”, Jeelani announced.
Jeelani’s announcement was greeted with a loud round of endorsement. Later on the Muslim panel also declared its decision on Twitter.
“Moulana Salman Nadwi is no longer a board member. Subcommittee of the board accepts Nadwi’s decision to quit the organization”, the Muslim panel said in a message posted on Twitter.
Salman Nadvi was the founder member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) and was associated with its since establishment in 1972.
