Meanwhile, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) held a press conference in Hyderabad where it said that Babri Masjid is an essential part of faith in Islam and Muslims can never abdicate the masjid nor can they exchange land for masjid, gift masjid land.

Haji Mehboob, in a letter to Ravi Shankar, said he was happy to know that he was working to find an amicable solution to the issue keeping in mind long-term peace and harmony between Hindus and Muslims. "I will be meeting saints in Ayodhya and also have a discussion with Hindu brothers from across India", said Nadvi.

The 26th plenary meeting of the board is underway in Hyderabad since Friday.

Earlier today, the board, in a press release, had quoted general secretary Rehamani as saying that the AIMPLB was ready for negotiations based on "fair justice and equal honour", though it also believed that a masjid, once built, remains a masjid forever.

He added that the triple talaq bill, which is now pending in the Rajya Sabha, is not acceptable to the Muslim community because it is against the Constitutional provisions which are given to minorities.

"The struggle for reconstruction of Babri Masjid continues and that the appeal of the Supreme Court is being fought rigorously, " the Board said.

Another member of the AIMPLB board Maulana Syed Kalbe Sadiq, made a controversial statement on Sunday in Lucknow regarding the Ram Mandir.

The statement from the Shia Central Waqf Board came shortly after the AIMPLB expelled its executive member Moulana Salman Hasni Nadvi, who had supported the construction of Ram Temple on the disputed land in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. Nadvi's meeting with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is in his individual capacity.

On Thursday, an audio-video clip of Maulana Nadvi had gone viral which says that the Hanbali school of Islamic jurisprudence allows "shifting of mosques" and that Muslims will agree to the plan.

Declaring the Hyderabad plenary as historic, he said that the present times were tough on Muslims, with the "government of the day showing a clear bias" against them. "We have no removal clause in our board's constitution, hence we would just ignore Nadvi". The mosque was demolished by Hindu Karsevaks on December 6, 1992 in Ayodhya.

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. AIMPLB is happy that apex court is treating the matter as case of land deal and not Astha.

The case is now pending in the Supreme Court.
