Still hunted by the police on his country, Zakir Naik still insists never violate any laws in his country


Zakir Naik Zakir Naik - Controversial speaker Zakir Naik, who was sought after by police in his country in India, claimed that he did not violate Indian law and is targeted by ‘the enemies of Islam’, in a public speech recorded in Malaysia, the country where he sought protection.

Naik (53) faces charges of money laundering and hate speech in India, where authorities said last year he had "promoted hostility and hatred between different religious groups in India through public speeches and preaches".

The preacher has lived in Malaysia, where he has a permanent residence, since India starting to investigate him, but lately he has not made much noise especially amid criticism that he is a threat to peace in a multi-ethnic Malaysian state. Naik said in a speech Saturday night in Kangar, the capital of Perlis state in northern Malaysia, that he never violated Indian law.

"But because I spread peace, I gave a solution to humanity, all people who don't like peace don't like me" he said, adding that he was targeted for his style in spreading the teachings of Islam. "This action is not pleased the enemies of Islam. Whether it is western countries or the country where I was born, India."
