Police Report Lodged Against Zakir Naik

Police Report Lodged Against Zakir Naik

I have lodged a police report, in my capacity as the Chairman of Majlis Gagasan Malaysia against Zakir Naik over a segment of his speech delivered in Kelantan during the Executive Talk held at Dewan Jamuan Utama, Kompleks Kota Darulnaim on 8th August 2019 at 9am, urging the police and the relevant authorities to investigate and take action against Zakir Naik for his seditious statement against Malaysians.

Zakir Naik has cast baseless aspersions. He needs to stop encroaching into areas that are beyond his remit, and stick to his Islamic evangelism work.

He has moved from comparing religion in his speech and encroached into politics and international relations. His speeches and statements have been inflammatory in nature. He is here to divide Malaysia by promoting hatred among races.

Zakir Naik have transgressed his privilege as a foreigner with PR status by issuing political statements and he needs to be banned immediately from speaking in public before he does further damage by creating inter-racial and inter-religious tension and conflict in our multi-racial society. We don’t need foreigners to come here and use religion to incite chaos.  

We urge the police and the relevant government agencies to investigate and take action against Zakir Naik under Section 504 of the Penal Code for intentional insult to provoke a breach of the peace and under the Sedition Act 1948.

All Malaysian must do our utmost to uphold the Federal Constitution as the supreme law of the land, defend the rule of law and the cause of justice. The rule of law must prevail at all times.
