Ex-All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) member Maulana Salman Hussain Nadwi was heckled by a group of students and teachers at an Islamic seminary in Lucknow. Nadwi advocated shifting of the Babri masjid from the disputed site in Ayodhya to resolve the Ram Janmabhoomi row. AIMPLB allegedly sacked Nadwi over his suggestion. However, Nadwi said that he had already quit the board at the time of his alleged sacking by the AIMPLB. At that time, he also said that the board has been overpowered by hardliners and nobody ever said anything when the idols were placed inside the mosque in 1949 or when the locks were reopened by Rajiv Gandhi and when the riots took place.
