The Shiv Sena today stated that Centre should book controversial Mumbai-based Islamic preacher Zakir Naik rather than planning to catch mafia dons like Dawood and Tiger Memon.
Sena in the party mouthpiece Saamana said: “Stop making announcements of dragging back Dawood or Tiger Memon from Pakistan…Now concentrate on Naik, this hidden enemy at home…Arrest him and throw him in the same cell as (hanged 26/11 Pakistani terrorist) Ajmal Kasab.”
“What about the propaganda and literature material of Naik — it is directly fuelling separatist elements in the country. It seems he is trying to become a messiah of the Muslims by pushing them into hell. A new type of unrest and ‘Pakistan’ is being created in India,” the Sena said.
