Dhaka: Taking strong action against Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, Bangladesh on Sunday banned the broadcasting of Peace TV in their country.
Bangladesh's Industry Minister Amir Hossain Amu informed that the decision to ban 'Peace TV Bangla' was taken after a special meeting of Cabinet Committee on Law and Order.

Naik has been in the eye of a controversy with people gunning for him saying that he was preaching hate. Naik is an Indian Islamic preacher who has been called an “authority on comparative religion.
Facing investigation over Zakir Naik's speeches that are believed to have "inspired" two of the Bangladeshi cafe attackers, controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik on Saturday sought support from the Muslim community against the "media trials" through his new Twitter handle "@drzakirofficial".
"I, Dr Zakir Naik, Call upon all my Muslim Brothers & Sisters to Support me against the "Media Trials" and Let Justice Prevail," Naik tweeted.
Naik has, however, denied all these allegations and said that he never preached terror or any violent form of Islam. He is expected to release his statement on this entire controversy on his return to India.
