Contrary to Maulana Ghulam
Mohammed Vastanvi`s claims, leading Islamic seminary Darul
Uloom Deoband has said that the former Vice Chancellor was
removed only after the Majlis-e-Shoora report was completed.
Salman Khurshid expressed hope that the Darul Uloom Deoband management would take an "objective view" of
remarks by its head Maulana Gulam Mohammad Vastanvi on Gujarat
and the 2002 violence which has triggered a controversy.
Nirmohi Akhara wants mediation of former President APJ Abdul Kalam, Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoban and Jamiat Ulama Hind along with Hindu religious leaders like Baba Ramdev and Shri Shri Ravi Shankar and Murari Bapu.
