Shut Up, Zakir Naik!

Hate preacher Zakir Naik has been told to shut up!

Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador (left) announced Tuesday that the said sermonizer has been banned from speaking on all platforms including social media. 

This prohibition will be upheld until police investigation into his hate speech is completed. 

Whatever lah – but it is time to take action against Zakir Naik without fear or favor! 

Even as he battles accusations of racism, UK’s OfCom had informed on August 06, 2019 that four programs on his satellite channel Peace TV were guilty of hate speech – after it aired shows describing gays as “worse than animals” and more “corrupted and contaminated” than pigs and also advocated the execution of magicians. 

The media regulator said four programs aired between November 2017 and March 2018 were found to have breached the broadcasting code of conduct. Note that OfCom have the power to impose a £250,000 fine or revoke a station’s licence.

Zakir Naik is a menace, that much is clear.
