Zakir Naik should be kicked out of Malaysia

We have raised with the Prime Minister and the Cabinet this morning, the issue of the presence of Zakir Naik in Malaysia and the recent event held by him in Kota Bharu over the weekend and other statements he has made which has caused controversy.

We have expressed our position which is that action must be taken and that Zakir Naik should no longer be allowed to remain in Malaysia. The Prime Minister has taken note of our concerns. We leave it to him to consider the position and to decide soonest possible what will be done to deal with the problem.

We also reiterate the concerns raised by many over speeches and statements of his which have been inflammatory in nature. We therefore express our objections to Zakir Naik in the meanwhile, holding any further events here in Malaysia or making further statements which impact on race relations and public order.

GOBIND SINGH DEO, MP Puchong.
