Zakir Naik Controversy: A new charge against the UPA govt
Mumbai: After Digvijay Singh’s fresh controversy regarding Zakir Naik, the then UPA government has once again come under scanner. Former Mumbai police commissioner and Baghpat MP Satyapal Singh on Saturday alleged that the UPA government did not take any action against controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik despite reports of his activities as early as 2008.
Satyapal Singh said:
- In 2008, we sent a report to government questioning Zaki Naik’s source of funding and speeches.
- His organization should be banned by FCRA.
- We filed a report on the event in which 12 people were converted to Islam at the venue; they have transformed at least 12 girls and boys into Muslim from Hindu and Jain communities.
- At that time we had sent a report.
- They get fund from outside.
As per reports, Naik is in Dubai and is likely to return to India on July 11.
Due to his hate and controversial speeches, he is banned in the UK and Canada.
In Malaysia, he is among those 16 Islamic scholars, who are banned.
Information and Broadcasting Minister M.Venkaiah Naidu said that Naik’s speeches are intolerable and that Home Ministry will take proper action very soon.
