A group of 17 Malaysian Human Rights activists have filed a case against controversial Islamic Preacher Zakir Naik in Kuala Lumpur High Court to revoke Naik's permanent residency permit of Malaysia.
These activists have informed the court that cases have been filed against Naik by the Indian Law Enforcement agencies and he is a wanted criminal by the India Government.The activists have also told the court that the Islamic preacher is a threat to national security of Malaysia. According to these activists, if Naik's Malaysian residency permit is not revoked, then this will hamper the relation between Malaysia and other countries.
Earlier, this group of 17 human rights activists, Malay rights group Perkasa, had also filed a case to deport Zakir Naik to India. Next hearing in the deportation case is on October 21.
The National Investigative Agency (NIA), probing the Zakir Naik case has summoned multiple times to record his statement before the agency but he never turned up. NIA has sought for prosecution sanction against Zakir Naik under Sections 120 (B), 153 (a), 295 (a), 298 (a), 505 (2) of IPC and various sections of UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act) which is likely to approved soon by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Zakir Naik 's Islamic Research Foundation is already banned by the Indian government for 5 years and all its bank accounts have been seized. Sources in the NIA have told India Today that chargesheet against Naik may be filed by the end of this month.
