The board says that the Muslim community is fully aware of the attempts of the present-day government and some individuals in trying to break the unity of Muslims.

The six representatives who attended the meeting included executive member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board Maulana Sayyed Salman HusainiNadvi, UP Sunni Central Waqf Board chairperson Zufar Farooqui, former IAS officer Anis Ansari, advocate Imran Ahmed, Maulana WasifHasanWaizi of TeeliWali Masjid and director of Objective Research and Development Athar Husain.

Its assertion came in the backdrop of a leading Muslim scholar Moulana Syed Salman Hussaini Nadvi of prominent seminary Nadwatul Ulema, Lucknow stirring hornets nest by meeting Art of Living Founder Sri Sir Ravishankar.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar tweeted, saying, "Maulana Salman Husaini Nadwi's expulsion from the AIMPLB comes as a surprise, as several members of the board have met with me & expressed their commitment to foster amity amongst Hindus & Muslims & to peacefully resolve this issue". "Babri Masjid is a Masjid and it shall remain a Masjid till eternity", said a statement released by the board.

The plenary session of the Board began on Saturday morning with the controversial Triple Talaq Bill and issue of safeguarding Shariah on top of its agenda.

The land dedicated for masjid can not be sold, gifted or in any way alienated, AIMPLB said in a statement.

He also said that the triple talaq bill which is now pending in the Rajya Sabha was not acceptable to the Muslim community as it was against the Constitution. "It is against the constitutional provisions which were given to the minorities", he said. "If anybody has any issue, he may discuss it with the board".

A "Hyderabad Declaration" will be issued here on Sunday afternoon by the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) after the conclusion of its 26th plenary. Salman Nadwi is still speaking against the Board stand.

He had barely summed up when board members Arif Masood, Zafaryab Jeelani, Asaduddin Owaisi, Qasim Rasool Illyas and a number of others launched a vocal attack.

The Babri Masjid, built in 1528-29 CE, was demolished by Hindu Karsevaks on December 6, 1992 in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, triggering massive riots across the country. "When an outfit like Karni Sena can rock the nation even after the Supreme Court's verdict, what more can be said about current circumstances", Maulana Salman said. The case in the court is not of faith but of the title.
