Noted spiritual leader and founder of the Art of Living Foundation Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has expressed surprise over the expulsion of Maulana Salman Husaini Nadwi from the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB).
Maulana Nadwi had met Sri Sri in connection with the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute where he extended support for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. He also hinted at an out of the court settlement by saying, “The courts do not join people’s heart as the verdict is always in favour of one and against the other.”
Following this statement, Maulana Nadwi was removed from the board of members of AIMPLB.
After his meeting with Maulana Nadwi Sri Sri had said, “I appreciate Maulana Salman Husaini Nadwi’s support for our proposal. His firm stance and courage in this regard are laudable. Crores of people across both communities stand with us for a peaceful resolution.”
The case is being heard by a special bench of the Supreme Court and the next hearing is scheduled for March 14.
