HYDERABAD: Another member of the AIMPLB board Maulana Syed Kalbe Sadiq, made a controversial statement on Sunday in Lucknow regarding the Ram Mandir.
Senior Shia cleric and Vice-President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), Maulana Syed Kalbe Sadiq said, “In my opinion, a Vidyamandir should be constructed in Ayodhya and the Ram Mandir issue will be resolved only when people want to resolve it.”
His remarks are likely to create another storm close on th e heels of one generated by the comments of Maulana Salman Nadvi, former member AIMPLB. Maulana Nadvi was expelled from the AIMPLB after he met with Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. He had opined that the Babri Masjid should be shifted.

All of us should stay united and fight democratically,” said Mr Obaidullah Khan Azmi, Rajya Sabha MP. Another member, Maulana Asghar Ali Imam Mahadi Salafi, said that people should be able to distinguish between good and bad.
