Radical Islamist Zakir Naik ordered to appear before court on July 31, non-bailable warrant to be issued if he fails to appear

The court has warned Zakir Naik that it will issue a non-bailable warrant if fails to appear before the court on the scheduled hearing.

A special PMLA court has ordered radical Islamist Zakir Naik to physically appear before the court on July 31, reports ANI.

The court has also warned Zakir Naik that it will issue a non-bailable warrant if fails to appear before the court on the scheduled hearing. The court was hearing an application filed by the Enforcement Directorate seeking a non-bailable warrant against Zakir Naik.

Recently, Zakir Naik fearing deportation from Malaysia had appealed before the court that he would be willing to come back to India if the Supreme Court gives a written assurance that he would not be arrested and jailed till he is actually convicted.

In a statement, Naik had said that he has trust in the Indian judiciary but he had no faith in the prosecution system.

The Indian agencies had requested Interpol for issuing a red corner notice against Zakir Naik and Interpol had decided to look into India’s request for issuing a red corner notice against Islamist preacher Zakir Naik. A team from Interpol is also expected to visit New Delhi as part of its investigation into the matter.

Naik has been notorious in spreading hatred between religious groups and for inciting Muslim youth to join in the jihad against non-believers of Islam. He used to use his NGO ‘Islamic Research Foundation’ (IRF) and a TV channel (Peace TV) to air his hate speeches in the country. The government of India had taken the channel off the air and banned the NGO.
