New Delhi: Former Mumbai Police Commissioner and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Satyapal Singh made a startling revelation on Saturday. The former top-cop revealed to NewsX that in 2008, he submitted a report to the then UPA government warning of Zakir Naik's nefarious deeds and propagandas.
Satyapal Singh said, “During 2008, Zakir Naik mesmerised 12 boys and girls to convert and accept Islam as their religion." Singh also added that a report stating the unlawful activities of Zakir Naik was submitted by him to the UPA government but UPA junked his reports.
Satyapal Singh expressed shock and grief over effective action not being taken against people like Zakir Naik who allegedly try to disturb the communal harmony inside the country.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will also be raising the Zakir Naik issue in the upcoming Parliament session.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has ordered a probe against Zakir Naik. The Islamic preacher and his channel Peace TV are banned in several countries.
