Govt extends ban on Zakir Naik's Islamic Research Foundation

  • The Centre on Monday extended the ban on Zakir Naik's Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) by another five years.

  • The IRF was first declared an unlawful organisation under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967 (37 of 1967) by the central government on November 17, 2016.

  • Announcing the ban, the Union Home Ministry in a notification stated that, IRF has been indulging in activities which are prejudicial to the security of the country and have the potential of disturbing peace and communal harmony and disrupting the secular fabric of the country.

  • The Ministry also stated that the speeches of the Indian born Islamic preacher, Naik, are objectionable and subversive and through them he has been promoting enmity and hatred among religious groups and inspiring youths of a particular religion in India and abroad to commit terrorist acts.
