Council clarifies why it rejected Zakir Naik ceramah


GEORGE TOWN: The Penang Island City Council (MBPP) has rejected the application by the Islamic Propagation Society International (IPSI) for controversial preacher Dr Zakir Naik (pic) to speak at a public ceramah at Penang City Stadium.

It said the application by IPSI for the ceramah on June 14 was rejected because of maintenance work and that the stadium was booked by the Football Association of Penang (FAP) for Premier League matches from February to July.
