India to take up Zakir Naik's extradition with Malaysia”

- Bernama picKUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3 ― India will request for the extradition of fugitive preacher Dr Zakir Naik from Malaysia soon, its Ministry of External Affairs announced today as reported by Indian news agency ANI.

"We are nearing the completion of this exercise and once this exercise is complete, we will make an official request to the Malaysian government on this matter", he said.

Kumar also said that the nature of the extradition request will be known in next few days.

The NIA has also filed a charge sheet against him for allegedly inciting youngsters to carry out terror activities.

In July, the absconding televangelist - who enjoys a NRI status, was declared a "proclaimed offender" by a special court.

As per media reports, Naik was given permanent residency in Malaysia. Critics see Naik's presence in Malaysia as another sign of top-level support for hardline Islam in a country with substantial population of minorities - Christians, Hindus and Buddhists - and which has long projected a moderate Islamic image. This mosque is regularly visited by the Malaysian Prime Minister and his cabinet. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

Rashaad Ali, an analyst with the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore, was quoted as saying if Malaysia were to boot Zakir out of the country, it would cause the authorities "to lose religious credibility in the eyes of the public".

He said Malaysia accommodated Zakir despite the legal troubles he faced overseas because "he remains a reasonably popular character among Malays, who gloss over his more controversial aspects".

Last month Zakir Naik made a rare public appearance at the Putra Mosque in Malaysia's administrative capital.

Naik did not respond to subsequent requests for comment from Reuters.

In a written Parliamentary reply to Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, home minister however promised that the government will take action against Dr Zakir if there is proof of his involvement in terrorism activities, amid an investigation by India.
