Digvijaya Singh Praised Zakir Naik In 2012; Says Arrest Him If Got Any Evidence

After video of him praising controversial peace leader Zakir Naik surfaced, Digvijaya Singh said if government has any evidence against Naik, they should take action against him.

In 2012, Singh had attended a conference organised by Naik, where he had him a ‘messenger of peace who can help bring communities together in India.’


Reacting to the controversy, the Congress leader tweeted:

Naik, who is president of the Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), is under scanner over allegations that his speeches have inspired the Dhaka attackers.

However, he denied that and clarified that he never said that all Muslims should be terrorists.


BJP hit out at the Congress leader.The party national spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said,”Congress party’s sympathies are always with terrorist organisations. So this is not surprising for us.”
