Claiming that Peace TV which features talks by controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik was banned by the UPA-II government in December 2012, Congress today hit out at the Modi dispensation asking why it allowed the “illegal broadcast of a banned channel” to continue.

Congress spokesman Manish Tewari, who was Information and Broadcasting Minister in UPA-II, told PTI that Peace TV and 24 other channels were banned by the government in December 2012 for “anti-national activities”.

“The question is why the NDA government allowed illegal broadcast of a banned channel to continue,” said Tewari.

Manish Tewari’s reaction came following reports that the government would initiate action against Zakir Naik’s whose ‘hate speech’ inspired one of the five Bangladeshi terrorists involved in the Dhaka carnage.
