The Indian and International agencies have started a through examining of the speeches and activities of Mumbai preacher Zakir Naik.

During the investigations of the Dhaka attack it has been revealed that two of the killers, Nibras Islam and Rohan Imtiaz, were inspired by Mr. Naik speeches. Official sources said to the press that NIA has been asked to gather material on Naik; so that it can be used for any justified action against him. The agency is moving with a caution, mindful of the popularity he enjoys among a section of Muslims.

“We have to scan his speeches to see if he has justified terrorism, creation of a ‘Caliphate’ through jihad or if he has endorsed or promoted for any banned terrorist outfit, including Islamic State (ISIS). Any action would follow after we have gathered enough material to make a case against him that will stand in a court of law,” a senior government functionary told the press.

The incident of slaughter of 20 persons, mostly foreign citizens, in an upscale Dhaka restaurant is so impacted that NIA will question Mr. Naik as soon as he returns from Saudi Arabia.

Naik is very much popular in Bangladesh for his Peace TV speeches. According to a Bangladesh newspaper, militant Rohan Imtiaz, son of an Awami League leader, ran a propaganda on Facebook last year quoting Naik. Even his CDs and DVDs are selling in the streets of Kolkata around the ares where muslim population is high.

Naik is banned in UK and Canada for peddling Salafist Islam and hate speech. He is among 16 banned Islamic scholars in Malaysia. Naik’s office on Tuesday claimed he was not banned in Malaysia.

Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) does not have provision for banning individuals, it can ban organizations. So far, there is no formal communication from Bangladesh. If they request us, we will examine what can be done,” said minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju.
