MALAYSIAN activist Farouk A. Peru has started a petition urging Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad to act on fundamentalist Muslim preachers and evict Indian preacher Zakir Naik from the country.

The London-based Islamologist’s petition was posted on this morning and comes two days after attacks on churches and hotels in Colombo, Sri Lanka, which left more than 300 people dead.

  • The country is keeping a time bomb in hand, it only damages ourself once it exploded. I don't care what religion u r, as long as u say 'support a Corrupted muslim leader rather than a Clean non muslim leader, we know where U R heading= DESTRUCTION. Zakir has an evil minded value system that can only destroy mankind. U don't need to be a religious scholar to tell u, he is a crook manipulating the Islamic teaching.

  • We do not want anything similar to Christchurch and Sri Lanka to happen in our home land. Actions should be taken now to prevent them from happening before it is too late.

  • Wanted by Bangladesh and India, barred in other countries, yet we see fit to give this pariah PR.

  • One day everyone realised its too late. Regretting is unforgivable then. The fugitive is already splitting Malaysians. If he is so innocent, demand for trial in an independent/neutral country.

  • We should ask ourselves what good is keeping Zakir in our nation? He deviates from the true teachings of the Quran and twists and sensationalizes issues by corrupting the minds of the innocent. He is a parasite that preys on the weak that succumbs to his deviant teachings. When more victims have fallen to his preaching we have no one to blame but by those who have allowed him the liberty to divide the nation.

  • Zakir Naik, president of Islamic Reasearch Foundation in India is wanted by the Indian government for spreading hate speech, laundering money, and funding terrorism. We do not need another Christchurch shooting or Colombo bombing in our already uneasy social interactions thanks to the constant racial and religious instigation by UMNO, PAS and Perkasa. Why embrace an international fugitive and even gift him an island?

  • Extremist religious leaders and political leaders who's only means of staying in power is by manipulating people via fear mongering are the culprits of all the violence that goes on in the world. We have so many crazy people going around with their own racist and bigoted views that every nation's wellbeing in threatened.
