NIA to social media sites, block speeches of the controversial Islamic preacher Dr Zakir Naik

The authorities today blocked  the website of outlawed Islamic Research Foundation founded by him.

The Government had recently banned Zakir Naik’s IRF for five years terming it illegal. The ban was enforced under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.

According to reports in the Indian media, it has been decided that the United States will be contacted to block his pages on social media websites.

The anti-terror investigation agency is also set to summon Naik, who is abroad ever since his name cropped up after the Dhaka terror attack on July 1 when one of the terrorists involved posted on social media that they had been inspired by the former’s speeches.
