Maulana Ajmal, a member of the managing committee of Darul Uloom Deoband, had supported former Deoband chief Maulana Vastani during the selection, sources said.

The Deoband's national executive committee dismissed the Assam unit of Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind, they added.

The managing committee of Deoband has now decided to convene on February 23 to decide the fate of Maulana Ghulam Vastanvi, who has offered to resign after his comments on Gujart sparked a controversy.

Vastanvi, who is in Gujarat, will reach Muzaffarnagar before the meeting at Deoband.
