The special NIA court in Mumbai on Thursday issued a non-bailable warrant against the controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, wanted by the agency for his alleged role in a terror case. The National Investigation Agency had registered a case against Naik under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act last year.

It told the court that Naik didn’t appear before it even after three summonses were issued and it would need to take Interpol’s help to bring him back to India. “Issue NBW against Naik,” said Special Judge V V Patil.

Last week, another city court had issued an NBW against Naik in a case of money laundering registered by the Enforcement Directorate against him. The ED lawyer had said Naik was believed to be in the United Arab Emirates. Naik, 51, left India last year, allegedly to evade arrest after some perpetrators of Dhaka terror attack claimed they were inspired by him.

Following the Dhaka attack, the NIA had registered a case against him and some officials of his organisation, Islamic Research Foundation, under section 153-A of IPC (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion) and the UAPA.

    This criminal must be exterdicated as this rat would go in hiding. If he has not done anything wrong then why is he so afraid to come back to India.

      Anything terror related should be dealt with quickly before the culprit escapes to other countries, sympathetic to his cause.

            Zakir Naik is believed to be in Malaysia. He was given a Malaysian PR.

                  I agree. India should approach all Middle-Eastern nations requesting them to hand over Naik. Naik is a very clever terrorist who uses words to incite illiterate young Muslims to commit violence.

                    He only says what kuran says, basic problem is with Islam and Kurna which most Muslims and even non Muslims are not ready to acknowledge. Basic problem is with Kurna which teaches hatred towards non Muslims, temples, statues, we Hindus are suffering from Islamic savagery of temples since 1000 years, when will Hindus wake up? I see many Muslims supporting cacophonic azaan , Hindus must not support Islam in any form and should work on converting Muslims back into Hinduism for peace to be achieved , not just for India Andy Hindus but for entire human race.
