Published on 10 July, 2016 at 5:50 pm By

Following the reports that Zakir Naik’s speeches inspired Dhaka attackers, the Bangladesh government has banned the broadcasting of his ‘Peace TV Bangla’ channel.

“The decision was taken during a special meeting of Cabinet Committee on Law and Order,” Industry Minister Aamir Hossain Amu, who chaired the meeting, told PTI.

The Mumbai-based Islamic preacher’s speeches are believed to have inspired some of the Bangladeshi militants, who killed 22 people, mostly foreigners, at an upscale restaurant in Dhaka on July 1.

 

The government has also decided to monitor the sermons given during the Friday prayers to check whether any provocative lectures are delivered.



Further, the government appealed to the Imams in the country to deliver lectures in line with real Islamic ideology of denouncing terrorism and extremism, the minister said.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan had said that intelligence agencies were investigating the Islamic preacher Naik.
