Malaysian Human Resources Minister said, Zakir Naik should be sent back to India
Malaysia Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran said India-born Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, a permanent resident of Malaysia, should not be allowed to remain in the country as he has no standing to critique Malaysian matters or cast aspersions on local communities.
According to news report in the Malaymail, Kulasegaran said Zakir Naik’s actions do not reflect one deserving of a permanent resident status and this will be brought up in the next Cabinet meeting.
The Minister sain in his statement that Naik is an outsider who is a fugitive and has little knowledge of the Malaysian history therefore he should not be given such privilege to run down other Malaysians, what more in questioning their loyalty to the country.
The controversial preacher is wanted in India for his alleged links with terror activities and money laundering.
Kulasegaran also questioned Zakir Naik’s motives in claiming that Indians in Malaysia were more loyal to PM Narendra Modi than Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
