Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday said that the Home Ministry will analyse and act appropriately on Zakir Naik’s ‘objectionable’ speeches

The minster was responding to a question regarding moves to ban Naik in India.

“Home Ministry will look into the matter and will take proper action after this. The kind of language being used by him is objectionable,” Naidu told media persons.  According to a Bangladesh newspaper, militant Rohan Imtiaz, the son of an Awami League leader and one of the perpetrators of last week Dhaka’s diplomatic zone terror attack quoted the controversial Indian Islamic preacher Zakir Naik.

Condemning the terror attack that took place earlier today leaving four people dead at  Kishoreganj in Dhaka, Naidu said that the need of the hour for the world is to unite and not only condemn but contain terrorism.

“Terror is terror it has no religion , it has no region it’s a threat to the humanity. Everyone should take concrete action on this, the entire world should unite together not only to condemn but also to contain terror and this is the need of the hour,” he said.

Naik, during his lecture on Peace TV, reportedly urged all Muslims to become terrorists.  Naik, a popular but controversial Islamic orator and founder of the Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation, is banned in UK and Canada for his hate speeches.  He is among 16 banned Islamic scholars in Malaysia.
