Thumbs up Indian clerics call for Zakir Naik’s arrest

PETALING JAYA: In light of the investigations against Dr Zakir Naik by authorities in both Bangladesh and India, Muslim clerics from the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh want the popular preacher arrested, with a blanket ban on his TV network Peace TV.

The Times of India reported that prominent clerics from across Uttar Pradesh demanded a ban on Zakir Naik for his “hate” speeches.

“Zakir Naik’s activities are against Islam and Indian culture,” said Maulana Asjad Raza Khan Qadri, a cleric from the city of Bareilly.

“It has been reported that terrorists who attacked the Dhaka cafe were inspired by Naik. His speeches support terror and radicalise people. Zakir should be arrested and his channel, Peace TV, banned,” said Maulana Shahbudeen Razvi, another cleric from Bareilly.

This demand follows the revelation that some of the militants behind the recent deadly militant attack in Dhaka may have been inspired by the controversial Salafist preacher Zakir, based on their previous postings on social media.

“Back in 2008, the Uttar Pradesh government had banned Zakir’s programmes in Lucknow, Kanpur and Allahabad,” the Indian daily quoted Maulana Asjad as saying.

Zakir is the president of Dubai-based Peace TV, which has been officially banned by India since 2012 for its “anti-Indian content.”

The network is also banned in Canada, China, the United States and the United Kingdom.

However, illegal broadcasts of Peace TV are rampant in India besides access to YouTube clips of the Muslim preacher thus making it difficult to curb his influence among Muslims in the sub-continent.

Terror links
Meanwhile, earlier today, the Economic Times in India reported that the Maharashtra state government was investigating Zakir’s speeches.

According to the daily, a police official from Mumbai said Zakir’s alleged terror links would be investigated thoroughly, “especially because Zakir’s ‘inspiration’ has been Ahmed Deedat, another firebrand Muslim preacher, from South Africa.”

According to the official, Ahmed Deedat is known to have previously met Osama bin Laden.

The official added that multiple teams will be formed to investigate Zakir.
“There are more than a thousand videos and other documents that will be investigated, we have formed multiple teams.”

Yesterday, India’s Home Minister Kiren Rijiju, said Zakir’s speech was a “matter of concern for us”. He said Indian federal security agencies were investigating him and going through his speeches.

He said Bangladesh would request India to take action if Zakir’s preachings were found to have instigated the attack.

Rijiju told Bangladesh’s bdnews24.com that India would consider a ban on the preacher’s activities, “If we have a request from Dhaka to ban Zakir Naik.”

Other terror suspects, too, have pointed to Zakir as an inspiration.

Najibulla Zazi, who was arrested in 2009 for conspiring to bomb a New York subway; Kafeel Ahmed who stormed the Glasgow airport in an explosives-laden car in 2007; and Mumbai’s Rahil Sheikh who was arrested for the 7/11 serial train blasts, had earlier claimed they had followed Zakir.

The Economic Times reported that the Islamic State’s Hyderabad module head Mohammad Ibrahim Yazdani had told the National Investigation Agency, during his interrogation, that his inclination towards violent outfits working to establish Shariah law was also because of Zakir.

Angry Zakir Naik confirms video saying ‘every Muslim to be a terrorist’ not doctored

KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 — Under the world’s microscope for allegedly inspiring terrorism, Islamic preacher Dr Zakir Naik has admitted that a video clip of his speech exhorting “every Muslim to be a terrorist” was not altered.

In a telephone interview with India Today, the Mumbai-based televangelist insisted that the only tampered segment was of his purported support for Osama Bin Laden and the al-Qaeda terror group.

“No, no, every Muslim to be a terrorist is not doctored. The one talking about Osama… that is doctored clip,” he was heard saying in the recording uploaded by the Indian broadcaster on its Facebook page yesterday.

Detractors have criticised Dr Zakir, claiming videos of the 2006 speech show his support for the mastermind of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Centre in the US that killed almost 3,000 people.

Dr Zakir has denied al-Qaeda’s role in the 9/11 attacks and claimed they were orchestrated by the US government.

However, Dr Zakir told India Today that the video clip that has gone viral worldwide since only showed “half” the story and did not provide the full context of his speech.

“These are my words but it is out of context. It is half. The full context of it I was giving an example,” he said.

The Islamic Research Foundation president, who has 14 million followers on Facebook and 200 million viewers of his Peace TV channel, also asserted that he is not banned in Malaysia contrary to reports in his home country.

The Indian citizen boasted that he has “very good” ties with the Malaysian government and had been conferred high honours.

“I've got the highest award of Malaysia given by the King of Malaysia and the prime minister that is the Tokoh Maal Hijrah award,” he said, referring to the government’s 2013 prestigious award to him in recognition of his contributions to Islam.

Dr Zakir was welcomed by the Malaysian government in April this year and held a series of sermons nationwide. He was also praised by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi as a “very wise man” and was reportedly gifted three islands in Lake Kenyir from the Terengganu government.

Authorities in India and Bangladesh are investigating Dr Zakir after news reports emerged that Rohan Imtiaz and Nibras Islam, two of the five gunmen who attacked a cafe in Dhaka, Bangladesh on July 1 were inspired by the salafist preacher.

The head of the Hyderabad chapter of global terror group Islamic State, Mohammad Ibrahim Yazdani, has also attributed Dr Zakir’s teachings as the basis for his venture into militancy.

Malaysia’s Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar told Malay Mail Online last night that he will review the Muslim cleric’s sermons and speeches made in India and Bangladesh before deciding whether or not police action is required.

Thumbs up India reinforces ban on Zakir Naik’s Peace TV

KUALA LUMPUR, July 10 — India has threatened to take action against cable television operators that air controversial Muslim preacher Dr Zakir Naik’s Peace TV channel, reminding them that the channel is unlicensed.

Indian English-language paper Hindustan Times reported India’s Information and Broadcasting Ministry deputy secretary Shankar Lal as saying that his ministry has already issued a directive to officials to take action against television channels that air Peace TV, amid reports that the content of the channel was aimed at inciting communal violence.

“Some unauthorised private satellite television channels are being transmitted by some cable operators. This is a clear violation of the sub-rule 6(6) of the Cable TV Rules under programme code and needs to be acted upon immediately.

“Necessary action must be taken by the authorised officers promptly against the defaulters to stop transmission of these channels,” Lal was quoted saying.

Dr Zakir, a trained doctor turned Muslim evangelist based in Mumbai, is a speaker on Peace TV.

The Peace TV channel was already banned in India in 2012 after the Indian government found that the channel allegedly aired anti-Indian content.
