TV Spokesman for Peace in 200 Countries
People of India Speak Out For Fair Treatment by UK for Dr. Zakir Naik
The Sunday EXPRESS, dated 31st January 2010, published The Indian Express list of the “100 MOST POWERFUL INDIANS IN 2010” amongst the Billion Plus population of India, with 36 names from the “2009 List” deleted, we find:
1) Dr. ZAKIR NAIK was ranked No. 89.
2) From amongst the few Muslims in this list of 100, Dr. ZAKIR NAIK is the ONLY MUSLIM ISLAMIC PREACHER / SCHOLAR / ORATOR. The others being a Political Secretary, a Politician, a Government Official, a Business Magnate and 3 Film Personalities.
3) Amongst the “Spiritual / Religious Gurus” and he was #3 and the only Muslim in 2009 list, this year (2010) Dr. Zakir Naik TOPPED the List of Spiritual / Religious Gurus at No. 89, for preaching of Islam, followed by Jaggi Vasudev (at No. 94, for his tree planting swork), Baba Ramdev (at No. 99, for his Yoga work) and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (at No. 100, for his Sudarshan Kriya breathing technique work) respectively.
Dr. Zakir Naik has more trials to face in UK and it is not over yet. Please continue your duas for him, inshallah.
Today he is more commited than ever to get out the beautiful message of the Peace in Islam to the English speaking people of the world.
In spite of their ignorance and rudeness - Dr. Zakir has insisted to his followers and supporters to be calm and courteous and to continue working alongside those who are serious in bringing about real truth and peace in today's world.
Dr Zakir is the founder and operator of the world's largest English speaking TV channel for Islam (Peace TV) was banned from entering the U.K. in June.
The most ironic (or moronic) thing is - He was labeled as a "Terrorist and a Warmonger" by Theresa May, the new director of UK government's Home Security.
A medical doctor from a family of doctors in Mumbai, India - Dr. Zakir Naik has made many sacrifices for Islam, not the least of which was to give up his very successful medical practice back in the 1990s to fill the shoes left empty by his hero and mentor, Sheikh Ahmed Deedat (may Allah's Mercy be upon him).
Dr. Zakir Naik instructs all of us with his words of wisdom saying, "Nothing good is achieved by trying to fight fire with fire - you just get everyone burned" - a beautiful statement from a very deep philosopher and teacher of Islam.
Let us all continue to work for truth and peace, as Dr. Zakir has requested.
Just write a kind letter (or two) to the people of Home Security and other concerned offices in the in government and let them know how much can be gained by allowing these Peace Conferences to continue in UK and other places.
We all need and want - peace. Muslims must have proper instruction from those whom they trust and Dr. Zakir Naik is beyone question, of the top presenters of moderate and balanced thinking in today's Muslim world. He has proved his ability and dedication many times over.
Here is a the quote from Ms. May after taking office last July - (from our recent article quoting the BBC):
Speaking in London, Mrs May said: "We need a complete change in emphasis, with people and communities working together to stop bad behaviour escalating."
She also said: "We need to make anti-social behaviour what it once was - abnormal and something to stand up to... rather than frequent and tolerated."
Video of Exact Comments from Dr. Zakir Naik - Please: RATE & COMMENT (Urgent)
Following on from recent malicious and specious reports in the British media about my work, a press release was issued dated 11th June 2010.
Further to this I am disappointed to learn the British Government has decided to exclude me from coming to the United Kingdom to conduct a Peace Conference Tour between 25th-27th June 2010.
Despite this I intend to continue my work of interfaith dialogue; Coming together upon common terms with other people and faith groups to promote a greater understanding of the binding strands existing between the faiths, whilst dispelling fears, suspicions and misconceptions about the beautiful faith of Islam, that have been created by a media frenzy of Islamophobia.
I encourage all Muslims to serve their country with dignity and honour and my message to vulnerable young British Muslims is that terrorism and violent extremism, is totally unacceptable and has no place in Islamic life.
I would urge the British Government to permit the Peace Conference Tour to continue as scheduled and assist in the promotion of Peace and social harmony, whilst upholding the values of freedom and justice.
