In a quest to continue his efforts towards finding an amicable solution to the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri masjid dispute, ousted AIMPLB member Salman Nadvi is all set to form a separate board, reports said on Monday.
Spiritual Guru Sri Sri Ravishankar, who is believed to be close to Nadvi will make the formal announcement on March 1, as per reports.
Maulana Salman Hussaini Nadvi, who favoured handing over the disputed land in Ayodhya where the Babri Masjid once stood for the construction of the Ram temple, was expelled from the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB).
A general body meeting of the AIMPLB on February 10-11, where over 500 people participated took a unanimous decision was made to remove Nadvi from the Board.
Nadvi had triggered a row on the eve of the plenary by mooting a proposal after his meeting with Sri Sri Ravishankar that the disputed land in Ayodhya, where the Babri Masjid stood till December 1992, should be handed over for the construction of the Ram temple.
Firebrand All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi alleged that Nadvi was acting at the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to create rift in the AIMPLB.
He also called for social boycott of those calling for giving up Babri Masjid.
