Over the past few days, calls have been mounting to act against Naik, who is primarily wanted in a series of cases in India, that range from radicalisation to money laundering to conversion.
Naik, who was being backed by Malaysia after fleeing India is suddenly facing the heat after he said that Hindus in Malaysia have 100 times more rights than Muslims in India and also suggested that Chinese Malaysians be expelled before he was.
New Delhi, June 11: In recent developments, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has said that it would be moving the Interpol to bring back controversial Islamic preacher, Zakir Naik from Malaysia to India.
Malaysia on the other hand said that it reserved the right to refuse an extradition. However India and Malaysia both have extradition treaties. For India bringing back Naik is crucial as he is being investigated for several crimes by the Enforcement Directorate and National Investigation Agency (NIA).
