Deoband: Darul Uloom`s incumbent
Vice-Chancellor Maulana Ghulam Mohammed Vastanvi said
that he will whole heartedly accept the decision of
Majlis-e-Shura whatever it may be.

"I will accept the findings of the three-member
committee and also the decision based on that by the
Majlis-e-Shura," Vastanvi said.

The situation in the seminary has improved now and
there is no controversy here anymore, he said, adding he will
will continue to work for the betterment of the seminary.

The Majlis-e-Shura or the governing council of Darul
Uloom had on February 23 appointed a three-member committee to
look into allegations against Vastanvi and all other issues
concerning both inside and and outside the seminary.

The moderate Maulana, had triggered a controversy soon
after his appointment with his remarks praising Gujarat Chief
Minister Narendra Modi`s rule and his development policy.

He had reportedly said that Muslims should forget
the communal riots of 2002 and move on and that the community
did not face discrimination in Gujarat.

The committee will start its probe by the end of this
month as one of its members has gone to Saudi Arabia for
Umrah, Vastanvi added.
