Rajendra Kumar, Similarly, a person close to Naik told Firstpost on Monday."Dr Naik has prescheduled engagements in a few African countries for which he is leaving tonight or tomorrow and will be busy for a few weeks"the source told Firstpost Naik’s decision not to return to India despite the nature of charges raised against him had instantly prompted the Indian media to say that Naik is dodging police The preacher who describes himself as an expert on comparative religion and Islam is probably concerned about legal action against him the moment he lands in the airport The preacher has actually made the plot even more complex by his reluctance to face the media and even the cancellation of his Skype meet Peace TV head Zakir Naik Image courtesy: YouTube But as Firstpost noted earlier there is no serious charge against the suave English-speaking preacher from DongriinMumbai beyond possible charges of hurting religious sentiments There isn’t any strong evidence of Naik’s terror-links beyond the charge that he has inspired Dhaka and Hyderabad terrorists linked to the Islamic state Even when Naik advocates the false notion of religious supremacy the merits of Taliban-like social codes offers a defence of Osama Bin Laden pledges allegiance to Islamic terrorists argues against girls’ education and the LGBT community he has been doing it through carefully-worded and clever caveats Naik’s allegiance to terrorism before the camera isn’t unconditional So in a way Naik has always played safe not to get entangled in legal charges Zakir Naik in his statement made on Monday further maintainedthat he did not support terrorism or violence "in any form whatsoever I have never supported any terrorist organisations and have mentioned this over and over again in thousands of my public talks worldwide I strongly condemn anyone taking my statements out of context and using it forviolence of any form" But Naik’s reluctance to face the charges on home land however can change the scenario and raise more suspicion Even within the Muslim community many Indian clerics have begun speaking against Naik saying he is misinterpreting Quran The only support he has received so far despite the claim of his millions of followers internationally is from some members of Samajwadi party and Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) who have argued in support of Naik “Naik is an advocate of peace theory in Islam The action by the authorities against the Islamic preacher is a violation of the freedom of expression He is being harassed for no valid reason” said E T Mohammed Basheer IUML MP and a former minister in the state at a presser on Sunday “The probe against Naik is being carried out in a prejudiced manner” Basheer alleged and demanded that authorities stop harassing the preacher Internationally too Naik may not have too many supporters except in Islamic countries such as Saudi Arabia Even Bangladesh has banned Naik’s ‘Peace TV’ in that country while India too has imposed some restrictions on the channel and the NGO run by Naik—Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) When the heat increased on him every minute Naik had now attempted to distance himself from the terror-related controversies responding through a series of videos shot in Medina In the videos Naik said he isn’t shocked to see the media reports linking him with Dhaka terrorists “I appear on various TV channels In Peace TV network alone I have more than 100 million viewers By the grace of God I inspire millions of people around the world On my personal Facebook page alone there are more than 14 million likes of which majority is from Bangladesh A person inspired by my videos is not shocking” Naik said The statement also quotes Zakir Naik as citing media to be the most "important weapon in the world" Naiksaid that he was "shocked at the media trial" on himregarding the recent terrorist attack that took place in Dhaka on 1 July 2016 "Most of the clips shown on the television of myself are either out of context half-statements or doctored So are my statements in the print media" Zakir Naik said Naik has been preaching for years But his name has surfaced only now in this fashion after the Bangladesh attacks and after the National Investigation Agency (NIA) busted an Islamic State module in Hyderabad In both cases the accused (Rohan Imtiaz and Ibrahim Yazdani respectively) have confessed to the investigators that they were ‘inspired’ by Naik’s speeches The NIA is reportedly looking at Naik’s past speeches Naik had denied the allegations that he inspired terrorists to kill Muslims “I inspire millions of people close to Islam Once a person comes closer to Islam there are possibilities that he starts hearing other speakers As you are aware there are some people who misguide the Muslims and in the name of Islam they encourage Muslims to kill innocent people which is totally against Quran The part which is reported in Indian newspapers—I inspire killing innocent people—I totally disagree I have never encouraged any other human being to kill any other human being This evil act of the Indian media trying to prove to the people that Dr Zakir Naik has encouraged terrorism is devilish I condemn the media that I encourage acts of terrorism" Naik said Naik has always maintained that his speech was taken out of context and media is trying to put him in bad light by being ‘devilish’ If what he says is true at a time when serious charges are raised against him the preacher should have returned the home country clarified his position and face the law of the land But by delaying his return he is doing all but the right thing was procured for consideration from Akash Coaching centre, Bawana and Narela will be given,

artist Sudarsan Pattnaik creates a sand sculpture of tiger with message “Save Us” on the eve of International Tiger Day at Puri beach of Odisha on Thursday (Source: PTI) Top News July 29 was designated as the International Tiger Day at the Global Tiger Summit in Saint Petersburg Russia in 2010 This is an annual event when NGOs and forest authorities host celebrities and school children — and media invites experts — to create awareness about tiger conservation Today tiger enthusiasts can walk a mile under golden-black banners adopt a tiger for as little as $55 or just pray for Jai the alpha male gone missing in Maharashtra The new option is to click a selfie with a tiger sculpture or photo — a tourism promotion concept probably inspired by the bizarre spectacle of safari tourists presenting their back to wild tigers and twisting themselves into knots in pursuit of that ultimate frame While walking donating praying or posing for the tiger today it may also be worth noting that this Tiger Day follows a few startling developments School students take part in an awareness event on the eve of International Tiger Day in Moradabad on Thursday (Source: PTI) It is entirely coincidental that Parliament cleared the CAMPA Bill yesterday and — barring the minister’s assurance — there is nothing in it to benefit the traditional forest dwellers the natural custodians of tigers Instead the huge funds may well trigger mindless afforestation drives destroying rootstocks and even standing community forests to further imperil both Instead of squandering the bulk of Rs 41000-crore booty in leaky plantation drives that have been chronic failures India can pump that money into protecting existing forests and corridors (they regenerate given a chance) into securing the future of all endangered species including the 16 that demand urgent attention (and were never allocated even Rs 100 crore in all) into empowering forest communities as custodians of local wilderness That is the first thing India could pledge this Tiger Day If this day is about securing the big cat’s habitat the second imperative is to designate no-go forest areas India needs to exit the paradigm that allows destruction of wilderness for monetary compensation We do not allow destruction of heritage buildings on the ground that the evicted would do just as well in plastic tents provided by builders Plantations can never ‘compensate’ the loss of long-standing natural forests and time we accept it as a policy And if this day is about raising awareness the third thing we should do is hold NGOs and governments accountable For a start officials must stop blaming every tiger death to in-fighting and start accepting that poaching can happen under anybody’s watch Tigers are not suicidal and no system is crime-proof While the social media is abuzz with Jai’s disappearance the absence of an individual tiger doesn’t matter in conservation But we need to ask how did the impossible happen How did a collared tiger tracked 24×7 under a Rs 1-crore research project go missing without alerting anyone Hundreds of crores of foreign and Indian (including government) funds are spent on sundry projects on conflict mitigation awareness drives or monitoring through different NGOs We need to ask how NGOs implementing the same projects using identical templates end up submitting drastically different financial accounts We can’t have only volunteers saving the tiger — it is time to guard against plain profiteering A tiger enjoys water bath in hot summer afternoon at a Zoo in Surat on Saturday (Source: PTI) This Tiger Day India will also do well to hit at the foundation of this symbolism Conservation as an elitist fad has never worked The engagement of forest communities — not as photo props but as the lead partner — can make the next Tiger Day a little more meaningful The other part of the symbolism — using the tiger as the mascot — is perhaps inevitable The cultural impact of the striped cat is unparalleled We may not be able save everything in saving the tiger But if we fail even the all-important tiger chances are we will not be able save much else For all the latest
