President of Musjid committee being involved in haraam

Q: The presidant of a masjid is living with his ex wife after divorce. We feel that this is against the teaching of Islam and therefore detrimental to the image of the masjid. Please advice?

A: The committee should speak to him that he either makes taubah and leave her or resign from his position.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
