In a letter to Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Sawant said the youths who perpetrated the Bangladesh terrorist acts have claimed they were inspired by the teachings of the Mumbai-based Naik.

Despite repeated attempts by IANS, Naik and his spokesperson were not available for their comments.

“This is not the first incident that terrorists have named Naik for such inspiration. The boys who joined ISIS from India have also made the same statement,” Sawant informed Singh.

He urged the home ministry to put a ban on Naik’s movements in the country, investigate thoroughly his activities and his affiliated organisations and institutes and their funding.

In addition to a ban on him, Sawant sought restrictions on Naik’s private television.

Born and living in Mumbai, the 50-year-old Naik is a qualified doctor who left the medical profession to set up the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), which runs the Islamic International School and NGO United Islamic Aid for the poor and destitute.


  1. Watch him mock a Hindu for saying ‘namaste’ as his followers cheer!! By the way, I’m only posting the least offensive stuff. A quick search on youtube will show you hundreds of dangerous speech by this man. This didn’t start last week. Our politicians, media and public have been ignoring this reality for too long in the name of secularism. Now you guys have blood on your hands!! What a shame!!

    • Hello, Mr. Rapidex RampaNNA, the ThyampaNNA who says he lives in a distant land of Milk and Money,

      The Emirati who was wrongfully detained by your Yumreeki police-papaNNA kumpadhr’s is suing for 200 mill USD. Well, if you’re to be believed, you guys have more milk than a zillion Jersey cow’s udders hold and USD’s are used to clean one’s backside.

      So, the 200 mill USD (if ever coughed-up) must be some loose change, right? 😉

      On another note, IF EVER some Yumreeki were to be meted the same treatment in the UAE, kalas… half your fleet carriers from from George Washington to Abe Lincoln to Harry S. Truman to Iwo Jima, US Navy seals, F-15’s, F-16’s, would be just inside the UAE’s territorial waters/thundering over UAE skies before one could say ‘Yumreeki RampaNNA’. 🙂
