District Muslim Organizations to Protest Vilifying Campaign Against Dr Zakir Naik
Mangaluru: Dr Zakir Naik is an Islamic educator and debater whose sole interest is preaching Islamic teachings by peaceful means. He has time and time again condemned all forms of terrorism.
All his speeches are available in the public domain and have tens of thousands of viewers worldwide. It is absurd to hold him responsible for the actions of those who have happened to view his videos or follow him online. Hence the statements made by responsible ministers in central and state governments and by investigation agencies are all ill-motivated.
The intended moves of the government agencies against Dr Zakir Naik amounts to curtailing free speech and religious preaching by minorities. In this matter, Muslim organizations of DK district will hold a protest in front of the DC’s Office on Friday, July 15 at 3 pm.
