Delhi HC dismisses Zakir Naik’s plea over Islamic Research Foundation ban

In a recent development, the Delhi High Court has dismissed Islamic preacher Zakir Naik’s plea against the immediate banning of his foundation Islamic Research Foundation (IRF).

The high court said that the Ministry of Home Affairs has enough material for banning the Naik’s Islamic research foundation.

“Immediate action appears to have been taken in interest of integrity &public order maintenance,” said the Delhi HC.

Earlier, the National Investigative Agency (NIA) on Tuesday issued a notice to controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik asking him to join the investigation at its headquarters in New Delhi by March 14.

The notice was received by his brother Dr Mohammad Abdul Karim Naik.

It is believed Naik is staying in Saudi Arabia to evade arrest after perpetrators of the Dhaka terror strike last year claimed they were inspired by him.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) also questioned Naik's sister, Nailah Noorani, in connection with a money laundering probe against Naik and others.

The central probe agency had registered a criminal case against Naik and others last December after taking cognizance of an NIA complaint filed under the UAPA.

The ED is looking into the charges of alleged laundering of illegal funds by the accused in the case and the subsequent proceeds of crime thus generated. It had earlier arrested his close aide Aamir Abdul Mannan Gazdar.
