KUALA LUMPUR – The police have banned controversial Islamic preacher, Dr. Zakir Naik from making public speeches throughout Malaysia.

According to the Corporate Communications Head of the Royal Malaysia Police, Datuk Asmawati Ahmad, the ban was made the sake of national security and to preserve the harmony between races.

According to her, the police have issued a directive to its contingents nationwide.

Earlier, Zakir was barred in Melaka, Johor, Selangor, Pulau Pinang, Kedah, Perlis and Sarawak following his controversial remarks during his recent talk in Kota Bharu, Kelantan which has caused racial discord.

During his speech, he questioned the loyalty of Malaysian Hindus, claiming that they are more loyal to the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi than the Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He also said that the ‘old guests’ of Malaysia, the Chinese need to be sent home before he, the ‘new guest’ is being extradited.
