Radical Islamist preacher Zakir Naik’s speeches inspired most of the 127 people arrested for ISIS links

Radical Islamist Zakir Naik, a Mumbai-born 53-year-old who is the founder of the controversial 'Peace TV' has been living in Malaysia since 2017 after fleeing from India and the previous government there had granted permanent residency to him.

In a shocking revelation by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday, most of the 127-odd terrorists arrested by security agencies in India for suspected ISIS links were inspired by the speeches of radical Islamic preacher Zakir Naik.

According to reports, National Investigation Agency director YC Modi speaking at a conference of anti-terror teams on Monday said that terrorists and their sympathisers who had joined ISIS were inspired by speeches made by Zakir Naik.

He further outlined the emerging terror challenges before the country at the conference of top police officers. He also highlighted that the Bangladesh-based terror outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) has expanded its footprints in Kerala, Karnataka and Maharashtra.

NIA also said that there have been 33 cases from Tamil Nadu, 19 from Uttar Pradesh, 17 from Kerala and 14 from Telangana.

NIA also said that in three of these ISIS cases from Kerala and Tamil Nadu, the accused have admitted that they were radicalized by Zahran Hashim’s videos. Hashi, as we know, is the mastermind of the Easter day bombings in Sri Lanka.
