Malaysia welcomes Zakir Naik with open arms



New Delhi: Red carpet has been rolled out by the Malaysian government as it welcomes Zakir Naik to Malaysia. Not just that he is even being given an open platform for his so-called 'sermon'.


He is the man who is responsible for spanning the ISIS network across India. And MEA has already started the process of revoking passport of Zakir Naik.


The ED had registered a criminal case against Naik and others last December after the National Investigation Agency booked him under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).

The ED also summoned Naik for questioning, but he has not appeared before the agency.

Naik, who was already abroad when the case was filed, has not returned to India fearing arrest since some perpetrators of the Dhaka terror strike of 2016 claimed they were inspired by his speeches.

The NIA registered a case against him and 'unnamed officials' of his Islamic Research Foundation under section 153-A of IPC (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion) and the UAPA.


In a setback to the Enforcement Directorate, a court in Mumbai yesterday granted bail to Aamir Gazdar, an alleged close aide of controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, in a money laundering case..

Unlike Zakir Naik, Gazdar had not been booked in any other case by the NIA or other government agencies, the lawyers said.

The ED had arrested Gazdar in February this year. Naik had allegedly established some 'dummy' companies in India and abroad which were used to camouflage diversion of funds received by him through his illegal activities, and he had named Gazdar as a director of at least six such companies, the agency said.

Gazdar was a close confidante of Naik, it claimed.
