Zakir Naik will be sent back if India requests it - Zahid

Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi assured that Putrajaya will send fugitive preacher Zakir Naik back to India if there is a request from the Indian government.

“If the Indian government makes a request to extradite him (Naik) based on Mutual Legal Assistance, we will return him.

“So far, there is no such request,” he said during the debate on Budget 2018 in the Dewan Rakyat.

Zahid, who is also the home minister, confirmed that Naik had not applied for Malaysian citizenship.

He was responding to remarks by Gobind Singh Deo (DAP-Puchong) who read out excerpts from an article by The Hindustan Times published on May 30, 2017 which claimed Naik had applied to be a Malaysian citizen.

“Will the government take into account the charges of terrorism when deciding on his (Naik’s) application?” Gobind asked.

The Malaysian government had previously acknowledged that Naik had been granted permanent residence status.

Authorities in India have accused Naik of funding terrorism, and India’s National Intelligence Agency (NIA) last week filed charges against him in court, the Times of India reported.

The 52-year-old was reportedly charged under India’s Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act with inciting youths to take up terror acts and join global terror groups such as the Islamic State.

NIA was previously reported to have written to Interpol asking it to issue a “red notice” for the arrest of the preacher.-8/11/2017
