The hearing on a plea filed by the Islamic Research Foundation, the NGO headed by controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, against the ban imposed on it by the Union Home Ministry was adjourned on Monday. The matter was posted for February 1 after “traffic snarls” caused due to the Republic Day rehearsals prevented relevant records to be produced before the court.

Watch what else is making news:

The NGO had approached the high court earlier this month against the November 17, 2016 decision of the central government to impose an immediate five-year ban on the outfit under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). The MHA had also frozen the NGO’s accounts under the FCRA.

The court had issued a notice and asked the MHA to bring the relevant records which formed the basis for the decision.
