Vastanvi to be questioned soon
Vastanvi, who earlier offered to resign from the top post, now wants to carry on.

Deoband: The three-member committee, formed by Islamic seminary Dar-ul-Uloom, to look into the allegations against it's controversial Vice-Chancellor Maulana Ghulam Mohammed Vastanvi would soon be questioning him.

"We are looking into the matter and will question Vastanvi on the issue very soon," the convenor of the committee, Mufti Ismail said.

The committee will submit it's report to Majlis-e-Shura, the governing council of Dar-ul-Uloom, in the month of July, when the meeting of the council is scheduled, he added.

A senior official at the Deoband, however, said that Vastanvi, who earlier offered to resign from the top post, now wants to carry on.

"He (Vastanvi) has indicated that he wants to retain his job," he said.

The three-member committee, which was formed on February 23, comprises Ibrahim Malik Madrasi, Mufti Maulana Manjur Kasmi Kanpur and Mufti Ismail.

Council had appointed Mufti Abul Qasim Naomani Benarasi as "acting" VC with powers and he would take over the position fully if Vastanvi is removed in the future.
