Zakir Naik granted Saudi citizenship


King Salman of Saudi Arabia has granted citizenship to Dr Zakir Naik, the founder of Peace TV and world renown comparative religious scholar. According to some reliable sources, the citizen was granted in order to prevent Interpol from arresting Dr Naik, who was declared wanted by the government of India.

Report gathered shows that the Indian court had issued a second arrest warrant against Dr Naik with allegation of being involved in a terror-related case and money laundering. Dr. Naik, who was on tour at that time, decided not to return to India and remained in Malaysia where permanent residency status was granted to him five years ago by the Malaysian government.

The 51-year-old Dr. Naik had left India last year after some perpetrators of the Dhaka terror attack claimed they were inspired by him.

It was also reported that the country’s enforcement officials were moving to revoke his passport and request Interpol to issue an arrest warrant for him.

It was believed that Dr Naik, who had by then moved to Saudi Arabia, would be forced to return to India if his passport was revoked. The Mumbai passport office, which appears not to have anticipated Saudi Arabia granting citizenship to Dr Naik, moved to revoke his passport while a special court sent out an arrest warrant for him.

This development has therefore made Dr. Naik to be completely free from any threat or arrest by the Indian government unless he return to his ancestral country.
