KUALA LUMPUR – Controversial Islamic preacher Dr Zakir Naik arrives at the Bukit Aman Police Headquarters this evening to record his statement.
He was seen to arrive in a Toyota Innova and entered the police station at 3.39 p.m. This is also his third time in Bukit Aman. He was accompanied by his lawyer, Datuk Akberdin Abd Kader.
It was understood that Zakir will be giving statements on his police report towards five individuals including the Minister of Human Resources, M. Kulasegaran for slandering him.
Last Friday, Zakir lodged a police report at the Section 7 Community Police Station on slanders thrown against him following his recent talk in Kota Bharu.
Besides M. Kulasegaran, the four other individuals are the Member of Parliament (MP) of Klang, Charles Santiago; State Assemblyman of Badan Dalam, M Satees; Deputy Chief Minister II of Penang, P Ramasamy and the former Malaysian Ambassador, veteran of Foreign Service Datuk Dennis Ignatius.
In the police written by Zakir, he also included several news report links related to the allegations made by those individuals.
Last Tuesday, Zakir continued giving his statements for the second day after his first statement on Friday. He is currently being investigated under Section 504 of the Penal Code for insulting, provoking and breaking public peace. He spent more than 10 hours giving his statements.
In his Kota Bharu, Kelantan talk on 3 August, Zakir was reported to make controversial statement on Malaysian Hindus and Chinese.
He alleged that the Hindus in Malaysia are more loyal to the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, compared to Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
He was also reported to have made critical comments on the Malaysian Chinese by saying that the ‘old guests’ of the country need to leave the country first before he, as the ‘new guest’ is extradited. -MalaysiaGazette
