Muzaffarnagar: The confrontation between
pro and anti-Vastanvi groups of Darul-Uloom Deoband continues
with the dismissal of Maulana Badruddin Ajmal-led Assam wing
of Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind.

Maulana Ajmal, a member of managing committee of Darul
Uloom Deoband, had supported former Deoband chief Maulana
Vastani during the selection, sources said.
The Deoband`s national executive committee dismissed
the Assam unit of Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind, they added.

The managing committee of Deoband has convened on
February 23 to decide the fate of Maulana Ghulam Vastanvi, who
has offered to resign after his comments on Gujart sparked a
controversy.
Vastanvi, who is in Gujarat, will reach here before
the meeting at Deoband.
