Lucknow: After the ouster of cleric Salman Nadwi from the All India Mulsim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) for suggesting an out-of-court settlement in the Ayodhya dispute, chairman of Shia Waqf Board, Syed Waseem Rizvi, has said the group is a branch of an international terrorist organisation and should be banned.

"The Muslim personal law board is being governed by terrorist organisations of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and is spoiling the environment of brotherhood in the country. Salman Nadwi also shared same sentiments as Shia Waqf Board to shift the mosque (Babri masjid) from the disputed site as it is the only way to keep peace and harmony in the country," he said.

Rizvi said that AIMPLB did not take action against Nadwi even when he wrote a letter to ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi three years ago, but has thrown him out when he has spoken in favour of peace and harmony.

Salman Nadwi was expelled from the All India Muslim Personal Law Board on Sunday after a disciplinary committee was formed by the board to look into the matter.

After his ouster, Nadwi reached Lucknow and said the decision reeked of "dictatorship prevalent in the board".

Speaking to News18, he said, "I want peace should prevail in the society but the board certainly is not in this favour. I was not given any show cause notice before being ousted; neither any answer was sought from me. I think it's time to dissolve the board. At the same time I want the culprits who demolished the mosque must be punished."
