Today, in a stormy Majlis Shura (Governing Council) meeting, Maulana Ghulam Muhammad Vastanvi ousted from his post of Mohtamim (Rector) of Darul Uloom Deoband. Following his ouster, Mufti Abul Qasim Nomani was appointed as Mohtamim.
The scheduled meeting Majlis Shura of Darul Uloom Deoband began on 23, 24 July 2011 (Sat-San). In the first two sessions of Majlis Shura, the educational, budgetary and other administrative reports and issues were discussed. Late in the night on 23 July, the 3-member committee which was set up to probe his matter, presented its report and Maulana Vastanvi was asked to submit resignation as per his promise in the last Majlis Shura meeting held 23 Feb 2011. But, then he denied resignation and subsequently was dismissed from the post by Majlis Shura.
Maulana Vastnavi was elected as Mohtamim of Darul Uloom Deoband on 10 January 2011 after the former rector Maulana Marghoobur Rahman passed away in Dec 2010. Just after his appointment, he sparked a controversy, saying Muslims too benefited from the development initiative of the Gujarat chief minister. He was also allegedly quoted saying that Muslims should forget the infamous 2003 Gujrat riots which took thousands of innocent lives.
This stirred protest in the campus of Darul Uloom which led to call an emergency meeting of Majlis Shura. The special meeting of Majlis Shura was called on February 23 to take steps to control the boiling circumstances at the campus. The meeting constituted the three-member committee comprising of Mufti Mazoor Ahmad from Kanpur, Mufti Mohammad Ismail from Malegaon and Maulana Mohammad Ibrahim from Chennai to look into the allegations against him.
Here is the Press release issued by Darul Uloom Deoband:
