NIA court issues non-bailable warrant against Zakir Naik

A special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW) on April 20, against Zakir Naik, who is wanted by the agency for his alleged role in a terror case, reports The Hindu. “There are reasonable grounds to believe that Mr. Naik is evading arrest and that he will not voluntarily appear before the court or the agency. I am of the view that an NBW is necessary to be issued,” Special Judge V.V. Patil said in his order. The court also observed that it found substance in the allegations made by the NIA. “Naik did not respond to the notices issued by the NIA to appear before the investigation officer,” the court said.

The NIA told the court that Naik has been allegedly promoting enmity and hatred between different religious groups in India through his speeches and lectures delivered on various platforms. It also said that he has allegedly been inciting Muslim youth and terrorists in India and abroad to commit acts of terror.

The agency said the preacher’s arrest is urgently required to unearth the entire conspiracy. Naik, left India last year (2016) allegedly to evade arrest after some perpetrators of Dhaka terror attack claimed they were inspired by him. Following the Dhaka (Bangladesh) attack, the NIA had registered a case against him and several officials of his organisation Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) under IPC section 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion) and the UAPA.
