Mumbai : On Friday, the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) protested at Kabutarkhana at Dadar against Dr. Zakir Naik demanding immediate arrest for allegedly promoting terrorism. The Samiti demanded a thorough inquiry to be conducted in the affairs of Dr. Naik and his institution, and stringent action should be taken in the matter.
Shiv Pratisthan Vikroli, Swarajya Yuva Pratisthan, Bajrang Dal, Shivpratisthan Hindusthan, Raigad Savardhan Pratisthan, Hindu Govansh Raskha Samiti, Lashkar-E-Hind, Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad and Sanatan Santha were also a part of the agitation.
Ramesh Shinde, national spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) said” Dr. Zakir Naik has been denigrating Hindu dharma, deities and holy scriptures etc. through rallies held by him and through TV channels; besides internet. According to Shinde, “The then Congress Government had imposed ban on Dr. Zakir Naik’s ‘Peace’ TV channel in India as he had telecast matters which were dangerous from the viewpoint of India’s security. Still in many places in India where Muslims are in majority, transmission of ‘Peace’ TV channel is openly shown.”
A similar telecast was relayed even at Solapur in Maharashtra when HJS had lodged a complaint earlier against Zakir Naik. The State Government should take prompt action against the cable operator showing banned ‘Peace’ TV channel. It is very dangerous for India since it has been exposed that Muslim youth involved in terrorist activities in Bangladesh being promoted by him. Many Muslim youth, men and women from India, have already shown interest in joining ISIS and Dr. Zakir Naik might be supporting them; therefore, Dr. Naik and his organization need to be thoroughly investigated and severe action should be taken against Dr. Naik,” added.
