Those Ulama “ours or theirs” who stoke fires of communalism and sectarianism are equally guilty and should be equally called out for Bias.
Mentioning the actions of “our Ulama” doesn’t make the crimes of Dr Zakir Naik less significant. In addition, Dr Zakir Naik reportedly claimed to be a proud India and proclaimed it to the best country of the world (repeatedly).
When the same “best country of the world” wanted to question him in connection with charges, he decided to flee the “best democratic country of the world” into the arms of a dictator.
The damage this does to the brand of Indian Muslims is colossal, in the eyes of average Indian (citizen), Muslims are outsiders anyways and this has reinforced that notion.
An Indian (Muslims) has outside connections, Islam is an outside religion and Dawah in India is being funded by outside sources.
Let’s get back to Saudi Arabia, did you know that there are over 1500 Ulama in Saudi prisons being tortured as we speak? Did you know that that hundreds of political activists languishing in Saudi prisons, tortured, raped and brutalised?
This is the regime which Dr Zakir Naik has decided to flee to and leave his “best country of the world”.
The coward left everybody else who was too poor to flee to face the Music back in India.
Saaray Jahan say Acha Hindustan Hamara…
If it, sit and face the (legal) Music.
This was about courage, dignity and standing by people who supported him. I hope that Indian Muslims remember the coward who fled the country and left them in the lurch to face the Media onslaught.
