Lucknow, Feb 15 (PTI) Chairman of UP Shia Waqf Board Waseem Rizvi today claimed that he has filed a police complaint against spokesperson of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) Maulana Khalilurrahman Sajjad Nomani at a police station here for his alleged inflammatory remarks.

However, police did not confirm receiving any such complaint.

In a statement issued here today, Rizvi said, “In my complaint I have stated that All India Muslim Personal Law Board supports the ideology of the terrorists, and they never want that the Ayodhya issue be resolved.” Rizvi referred to Nomani’s February 9 statement made in Hyderabad during AIMPLB meet, and alleged, “Nomani through his statement is conspiring to wage a civil war in the country by instigating the Muslims. This amounts to sedition.” SHO Hazratganj Anand Shahi, when contacted, said that he has not received any such complaint.

Despite repeated attempts, Nomani could not be contacted for comments.
