Deoband: Islamic seminary Darul-Uloom on Friday demanded the resignation of All India United Democratic Front President and MP, Badruddin Ajmal, from its top policy making body for reportedly describing it as a political forum.

Saleem Usmani of Tanzim-i-mohebban (the committee of followers of Durul-Uloom Deoband) asked Ajmal to seek apology from Muslims for "hurting the sentiments of the community."

He alleged that Ajmal had tried to make the reputed seminary a "political akhara" by conducting elections for the post of vice-chancellor.

"Now he has hurt the sentiments of the Muslim community by describing the Majlis-i-Shura as a political shura," Usmani said, adding that he should resign from the body.

Maulana Nasar Ilahi, a cleric, said Ajmal should be dismissed if he does not resign.
