Zakir Naik: Rabid preacher to financial fraudster to Fugitive
 
Zakir Naik was known for his hate speeches where he was seen deriding other faiths and traditions. NIA authorities and police of different states in India have found evidence to prove that Zakir Naik's speeches have directly or indirectly influenced many terrorists to commit numerous acts of terror in India, Bangladesh and most recently in Sri Lanka. The terrorists who perpetrated the Sri Lankan blasts which killed more than 300 innocents were hugely influenced by the teachings of Zakir Naik. The proof for these allegations was revealed during the NIA raids in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. His name featured even during the investigations into the terror attack in Dhaka which killed 29 people.
 
Naik has been evading arrest in India since 2016, when allegations of hate speech and money laundering were made against him. It was alleged that he used his channel Peace TV to launder money outside India. Again in 2019, Enforcement Directorate filed money-laundering charges against him following which a Mumbai court granted the agency a warrant to arrest Naik and bring him to trial.
 
Zakir Naik and his speeches have been banned in several countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Bangladesh, including India. His Peace TV has also been banned in India, Sri Lank and many other countries.
