Decision on the fate of Ghulam Mohammad Vastanvi, the vice-chancellor of Darul Uloom Deoband, would be taken on Sunday by a three-member Majlis-e Shura.
"The decision on Vastanvis's fate would be taken in Sunday's meet," acting vice-chancellor Mufti Abul Qasim Nomani said.
The majlis-e-shoora or the governing council of the seminary met on Saturday and discussed various issues, but the subject of Vastanvi did not come up during the discourse, Nomani said.
The report of the inquiry committee would be submitted at the meeting of the Council, he said.
According to the sources, there is no unanimity in the three-member committee regarding the fate of Vastanvi.
Vastanvi, who is also an MBA, was elected VC on January 10 following the death of his predecessor Maulana Marghoobur Rahman. He sparked a controversy, saying Muslims too benefited from the development initiative of the Gujarat chief minister.
The governing council constituted a 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 Vastanvi.
