I am really pained at these organized attacks on Doctor Zakir Naik by some vested groups. Forget the vested interests – which are linked to the RSS – let me explain why Doctor Saa’b is not guilty of what he is being accused of.
First of all, 99.99 % people who follow Zakir Naik are peaceful, only 0.01% of those become Jihadis or terrorists. This is like blaming Dettol because it could not eradicate those 0.01% germs. Are you serious?
For god’s sake, even his channel is called PeaceTV, Which literally means PEACE!
His teaching about Quranic verses and Islamic rules have clearly been misinterpreted and presented out of context. Yes, he can be seen and heard supporting Osama Bin Laden. He also tells you how to beat your wife properly, and why polygamy is okay.
Just listen to him more and you will find out that he also says that killing a man (except when killing him for reasons prescribed in the book) is like killing the entire humanity. He also condemns unnecessary terrorism. So if we can focus on 0.01% Jihadis, why can’t we just focus on the 0.01% of other things he said?
For me, there is no TV but PeaceTV and Zakir Naik is the final and the best TV anchor. His TV channel is the only true channel. And I believe that his statements are the immutable, unalterable words of wisdom. If you have problem with my beliefs, you need to see a Doctor as you are suffering from intolerance. And yes, Zakir Naik Saa’b is a Doctor.
Is it so tough to understand that Bangladeshi Jihadis, ISIS module in Hyderabad, and other upcoming terrorists have just misinterpreted his speeches? We can’t blame entire followers of PeaceTV for acts of a few. Such actions will only spread more PEACEOPHOBIA in our society.
Now for sake of argument, let me accept that charges you level against Doctor Saa’b are true. That Zakir Naik spreads hate against other cultures. So? You will ban him?! Isn’t that against multiculturalism? My culture is all about rejecting your culture. Why can’t you accept me as this?
Problem is your intolerance and bigotry. And solution is to watch more PeaceTV. But you are asking to ban PeaceTV!
And let’s stick to facts. Claiming that PeaceTV comes under I&B Ministry or Indian laws are blatantly communal. PeaceTV is above any man made laws of a man made country! And any action of Zakir Naik will damage the idea of TV.
