Muzaffarnagar: The confrontation between
pro and anti-Vastanvi groups 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
Vastanvi during the selection, sources said.

The national executive committee of Jamiat
Ulema-I-Hind dismissed the Assam unit led by Maulana Ajmal,
they added.

The managing committee of Deoband has convened a
meeting on February 23 to decide the fate of Maulana Ghulam
Vastanvi, who has offered to resign after his comments on
Gujarat sparked a controversy.

Vastanvi, who is in Gujarat, will reach here before
the meeting at Deoband.
