New Delhi, Jan 20: There is more trouble for controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik. The National Investigation Agency has found transactions to the tune of almost Rs 100 crore which were allegedly invested in real estate.
The NIA has learnt that there are 78 different bank accounts through which these transactions were made. “We are in the process of examining these accounts and once the picture is clearer, we will summon him for questioning,” an NIA official said.
New Delhi, Nov 25: Controversial Islamic preacher Dr Zakir Naik whose NGO, Islamic Research Foundation was banned said he has no option but to seek legal recourse. Naik said that not a single question was asked before the ban was imposed. In such a scenario I have no option but to seek legal recourse he also said.
Bengaluru, Nov 23: A Rs 80,000 scholarship from the Zakir Naik run Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) was given to a person called Abu Anas in October 2015. Three months later Anas, an engineer, was on his way to Syria to fight alongside the ISIS.
He was, however, arrested. Zakir Naik’s NGO, the IRF has been banned by the Union Home Ministry for promoting acts of terror and indulging in conversions. In this context, it would not be wrong to ask if the IRF along with a scholarship was also selling a radical ideology.
The team would investigate the Islamic Research Foundation run by Naik. It may be recalled that the NGO had been banned by the Union Government for five years earlier this week. The NIA also conducted raids in 10 different centres of the Islamic Reserach Foundation.
If urgent steps are not taken then there is every possibility that many youth would get motivated and radicalise to commit acts of terror, the centre said while imposing a ban on the Dr Zakir Naik run Islamic Research Foundation.
