With Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju stating that decision to ban controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik is the call for law enforcing agencies to take, the Janata Dal (United) on Thursday said all forms of extremism should be banned.

“Religious leaders in every community have increased ever since BJP came to power. We get to hear news of extremism from Punjab, from UP and also from Mumbai. So, all kinds of extremism should be banned,” JD (U) leader K.C.Tyagi told ANI.

Rijiju had yesterday said, it was not wise on the part of a minister to make announcement on banning Zakir Naik, who was followed by one of the five Bangladeshi youths involved in the killing of 22 people at Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka last Friday. He added that that it is the call of the law and agencies.

He said that India and Bangladesh have been working closely together for many years, especially related to security related issues.

“The present government of Bangladesh is very favourable to India’s concern. That is why, for any action to be taken we have to work together because the threat of terrorism is not limited to one country,” he told media yesterday.

According to a Bangladesh newspaper, militant Rohan Imtiaz, son of an Awami League leader, propagated on Facebook last year quoting the controversial Indian Islamic preacher Zakir Naik.

Naik, in his lecture in Peace TV, reportedly urged all Muslims to become terrorists.

Naik, a popular but controversial Islamic orator and founder of Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation, is banned in UK and Canada for his hate speech aimed against other religions.

He is among the 16 banned Islamic scholars in Malaysia.

    WE must pity these fanatics. If you want to listen to them, it is like going and seeing the dead body of someone who committed suicide in your neighborhood. He who Suicides waste a life God has gifted him . A fanatic commits spiritual suicide and ends life after spreading hatred in the minds of many and many a time causing his followers to kill or hurt fellow human beings. With the RSS/BJP in power there are so many such fanatics who think they are very highly educated, inciting poor Hindus to hate others. One such 'teacher' is Sasikala teacher in Kerala. With money power and misguided 'spiritual teachings' to sacrifice their lives, Muslim and Christian 'evangelists' indulge in abuse and insult of other religions and spread hatred. They think and teach that salvation is only through their religion and want to convert the entire humanity into their religion. Muslims will resort to force and killing and Christians would spend (Foreign?) money to achieve their goal. ALL these fanatics and self styled teachers are dangerous to the society. Enforce a code of decency on these "preachers"

      Extremism has no place in society and irrespective of any religion must be banned unconditionally. Hate has no place.

        I feel Zakir Naik is a comedian sort of person. He twists and turns statements shouting loud, making people confused more than ever. You surely will have fun listening him. But make sure, you don't take any of his words to mind, because they are dangerous! Just listen and laugh. That's it.

          The worst form of extremes are in modern civilization based on falsehood and those rooted in modern civilization aiding and abetting it. Modern civilization will soon end in its suicide and as a corollary the extinction of life.

            Congress cultivated Zakir for furthering their DVBP ( Divisive Vote Bank Politics ). JD(U) is also following the same in ociation with RJD. The way they have handled the Super Nirbhaya incident in Motihari, involving the traditional vote bank community clearly proves their ideology. They have virtually buried the case by muting all voices including the media. Now they are talking philosophically just to cover up their guilt. lt;br/gt;What a shame ? Nitish needs to explain, as to why they are playing the Congress game.
