KUALA LUMPUR: MIC Youth says Islamic scholar Dr Zakir Naik should be held accountable for misguiding Muslim youths, including in relation to the recent Dhaka attack.

Its chief Sivarraajh Chandran alleged that the Indian Islamic preacher was complicit in the deaths of nearly 30 people in the terrorist attack in Bangladesh last week.

“Now that the Dhaka killers have praised Dr Zakir and put him up along with his sayings on their Facebook page, there is nowhere he can hide,” he said in a statement on Thursday.

Sivarraajh said the Mumbai-based preacher should not provoke other religions and in fact, should urge his followers to respect other religions.

He also called on Malaysians to stop entertaining and giving prominence to people like Dr Zakir.

“There are many scholars in Malaysia who promote peace, tolerance, moderation and true Islamic values and these scholars should be emulated and not those like Dr Zakir,” he said.

Sivarraajh also expressed support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s statement which called for action against any religious or political leader who issued controversial remarks against any religion.
