Islamic scholar Zakir Naik hits back hard against Indian NIA over terrorism charges

*NEW DELHI - **Islamic scholar Zakir Naik hits back hard against Indian National Investigation Agency over terrorism charges against him.*

Zakir Naik has accused the National Investigating Agency (NIA) of trying to falsely implicate him in terrorism-related cases and said that the agency has failed to gather any evidence to prove his involvement in anti-India activities in past three years.

''It's unfortunate that the NIA, having spent over 3 years investigating me, has been publicly making claims connecting me to terrorism without having in possession a single shred of evidence to support it,'' Naik said in a statement, according to news agency ANI.

The statement from the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) came a day after the central anti-terror probe agency said that most of the 127 people arrested from 14 states for their alleged links to the Islamic State terrorist group were inspired by preacher Zakir Naik
