Exclusive Video Zakir Naik Answer Made Sikh Speechless Watch Clip
Zakir Naik is an Indian Islamic preacher and “televangelist”,who has been called an “an authority on comparative religion”,”perhaps the most influential Salafi ideologue in India”,and “the world’s leading Salafi evangelist”.He is the founder and president of the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF),and founder of the “comparative religion” Peace TV channel, through which he reaches a reported 100 million viewers.Unlike many Islamic preachers, his lectures are colloquial,given in English not Urdu or Arabic,and he wears a suit and tie rather than traditional garb.
Before becoming a public speaker, he trained as a medical doctor.He has published booklet versions of lectures on Islam and comparative religion. Although he has publicly disclaimed sectarianism in Islam,he is regarded by some as an exponent of the Salafi ideology,and some as radical Islamic televangelist propagating Wahhabism.
Naik says that his goal is to “concentrate on the educated Muslim youth who have become apologetic about their own religion and have started to feel the religion is outdated”.He considers it a duty of every Muslim to remove perceived misconceptions about Islam and to counter what he views as the Western media’s anti-Islamic bias in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States.Naik has said that “despite the strident anti-Islam campaign, 34,000 Americans have embraced Islam from September 2001 to July 2002”. According to Naik, Islam is a religion of reason and logic, and that the Quran contains 1000 verses relating to science, which he says explains the number of Western converts.Some of his articles are published in magazines such as Islamic Voice.
