New Delhi [India], Feb 16 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ashwini Upadhyay on Friday alleged that the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) was constituted to strengthen the Congress Party and to promote Wahhabism, an Islamic doctrine popularly assumed to be the root of global terrorism.

He also claimed that donations from Gulf countries are also taken by the organisation.

"All India Muslim Personal Law Board is an NGO, registered in 1973 under the guidance of Indira Ji to strengthen INC and promote Wahhabism. It collects donation from Gulf countries also but never audited till date," Ashwini tweeted.

Lately, AIMPLB has been on the headlines for ousting its executive member Moulana Salman Hasni Nadvi, who supported the construction of Ram temple at the disputed piece of land in Ayodhya.

Notably, AIMPLB has extended support for the reconstruction of the demolished Babri Masjid at the disputed site.

The move soon turned into a politically tinted debate, with right-wing supporters questioning the national loyalty of AIMPLB.

Shia Central Waqf Board chairman Wasim Rizvi also termed it as one of the subsidiaries of terror groups. (ANI)
