Waseem Rizvi demands ban on AIMPLB; in wake of Islamic preacher Zakir Naik
He has been making bold statements that have been dubbed as controversial as well but Chairman of UP Shia Central Waqf Board Wasim Rizvi demanded on Sunday a ban on the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB).
The AIMPLB is the highest decision making body of Muslims in the country.
Rizvi however termed it a terrorist organisation.
Rizvi’s assertion came after AIMPLB board sacked Salman Husaini Nadvi on Sunday at its ongoing session in Hyderabad.
Nadvi, an executive member of the AIMPLB, was shown the door after he suggested shifting the site of Babri Masjid from Ayodhya.
Recently, Nadvi had met Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of Art of Living, and extended his support to the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Rizvi said the AIMPLB did not take any action against Nadvi when he wrote a letter to ISIS chief Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi congratulating him for declaring a Caliphate.
Rizvi also attacked the AIMPLB on the issue of controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, who has been declared an absconder by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). >
