Fugitive Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, who fled to Malaysia, has again issued a community poisoning statement. Zakir Naik supported the demolition of the Hindu temple in Pakistan and said that the construction of a Hindu temple in an Islamic country cannot be approved. Naik said if there is an idol in an Islamic country, it should be destroyed.
According to reports, Zakir Naik said in his latest video: “When Mohammad Sahab returned to Kaaba, he shattered almost all 360 idols present in Kaaba. An idol or a statue must not be built in an Islamic country and if it is, it must be destroyed. There shouldn’t be a statue in an Islamic country and if it is anywhere it should be destroyed. This poisonous statement from Zakir Naik comes at a time when a Hindu temple in Pakistan has been destroyed and set on fire. Meanwhile, Chief Minister of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province Mahmud Khan said on Friday that the provincial government would renovate the temple where the mob set fire to after the demolition.
