Mumbai: On Thursday, protests broke outside the office of Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, following which the Mumbai Police beefed security outside his office. Naik has been under scanner after the Dhaka terror attacks.
Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju said that the controversial speeches delivered by Naik are a matter of concern for all of us and the Indian agencies are looking into the matter.
Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant is so outraged with Naik’s speeches, that he has demanded an immediate ban on the Islamic preacher. Naik, on the other hand, condemned the attack in Dhaka and said that the term Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is un-Islamic.
Naik had said,“By using the name Islamic State, we are condemning Islam… They are the anti-Islamic state of Iraq and Syria that has killed innocent foreigners. The name is given by enemies of Islam.”
“My speeches on Islam and terror are being taken out of context”, added Naik.
