Two of controversial preacher Zakir Naik's aides — Arshi Qureshi and Rizwan Khan — have been booked by the Mumbai police for forceful conversion and radicalisation
Investigating agencies like the NIA, ATS, and the crime branch and special team of the Mumbai Police are very close to the pointing fingers at Zakir Naik
Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, has slapped a Rs 500-crore defamation case against Times Now editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami for running a “hate campaign” and “media trial” against him.
Naik’s claims that his speeches never supported terrorism and instead ‘dealt with communal harmony’ do not hold much water.
Kerala Police on Monday claimed Arshi Qureshi, Guest Relations officer of Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation, who was arrested from Mumbai last week in connection with a missing Kerala woman, has links with terror outfit Islamic State.
Kerala Police hope that the interrogation of Qureshi may help them get definite clues regarding the whereabouts of the missing people. However, they have hinted that Qureshi may not be the sole person involved.
Naik has accused the Indian media of conducting trials against him. It is, of course, worth pondering and soul-searching.
In his speeches, Naik implies that everyone should embrace the ‘one true religion’ and come to the path of righteousness.
Arshid Qureshi, who was arrested on the charges of recruiting Kerala youths for the Islamic State, is a guest relations officer at Zakir Naik's foundation
The basic question that must not be overlooked is that why Naik has been trying to lure the Indian Muslims, anchored in an age-old traditional Sufi Islam, into professing and practicing the pernicious theology of Salafism.
Controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik has announced that he will hold a press conference on Thursday, 14 July, in Mumbai.
In this age of internet and the reach of social media, any information battle — be it the Islamic State's online recruiting strategy or Zakir Naik's regressive ideology —cannot be won by using tools of conventional warfare.
Zakir Naik, who is facing heat over his terror ridden speech, claimed that no Bangladesh government official had said that he inspired the act of terrorism.
Zakir Naik is all over the news after two of the attackers in the Dhaka attacks were found to have been influenced by him. The Islamic preacher has now come under the scanner of the Indian government.
In the past too, Zakir Naik has made many a statements that created quite a flutter in India and across the world.
Islamic tele-evangelist Zakir Naik is once again in the news. And it comes as no surprise that this time too it is for all the wrong reasons.
