Zakir Naik on NDTV talk show – A Review

The moment i heard Dr. Zakir Naik is taking part in the NDTV talk show “we the people”, I made myself available to see how this time Barkha dutt is going to sideline the arguments of a renowned personality. Well i forgot that there is a level of dishonesty from her side using which she can sideline just anyone. As expected, he was not given enough chance to speak and the focus was completely on Shahrukh khan of Bollywood. Not just that, second person who got the chance to speak more was Karan Johar!

Anyways, Here is my little analysis:

Let’s begin from the right side of the screen.

Kabir khan: This fellow seems to be a result of too much pestering by his parents on following Islam, without actually having explained to him why he is required to follow it. Guess he never knew why and what Islam is all about. He appears to be apologetic and wants to run away from real Islam! He was actively using the word “moderate Muslims”, referring to himself and people alike. But the moment Dr. Zakir Naik said that there is nothing called liberal,moderate, or extremists Muslims and instead there is only practicing or non practicing Muslims, this guy changes his word and retracts suddenly saying “the so-called Muslims”. He knew he cannot speak Garbage about Islam in front of Dr Naik or Moulana Madani.

Moulana Mahmoud Madani: I found him quite an interesting person with proper intelligence in handling such situations. He too, like Zakir Naik, got very less time to respond. So he did not go for any explanations and simply used humor and pushed the ball to others. However, he did raise good question on stereotyping a Muslim with a beard as against Non bearded Muslim.

Alyque Padamsee:
This person renounced religion and is, correct me if i am wrong, an atheist. But he does speak a lot in favor of Islamic scholars who actively denounce killing of innocents. He also appreciated the stance taken by scholars in denouncing terrorism. Since this guy doesn’t believe in any religion, he has nothing to lose! (Ahem! I mean in this show :-))

Karan Johar: Being a Non Muslim, he did proper analysis and was sincere and fair in his statements. He did raise fingers on those educated people who try to take anti-Muslim stance. He also stated that the reason he took up the project of making films depicting Islam to be opposite of what is portrayed by western media is because of an incident where 6 Non Muslim educated graduates were talking crap and wrong about Islam and that he wanted to correct this ideology which might be amongst millions of people around the world after watching western media. He also frankly spoke about the Hijab problems, the restriction of personal freedom, the issue of personal choice and about attaching religion to evil acts. In reality, he spoke better on behalf of Islam than the Ghalib fan, Najib Jung!

Shahrukh Khan: He is far superior to all others sitting in on the center stage in handling such Media based dialogues that requires special skills of answering in just one or two sentences. Shahrukh has been speaking about him being Muslim and how proud he is to follow Islam in many of his talks lately. His ignorance of Islam oozes out when he  emphasizes on feeling Islam than following it.  But he does agree to the fact that he lacks knowledge on Islam and that was really brave in accepting. This shows that the person is sincere and ready to learn the truth. Although some of his statements also showed signs of kufr, but yet, ignorance of knowledge could be the reason.  He also adds that he is a bad follower of Islam and that his film acting is against Islamic rules. This shows that at least (maybe) he is beginning to learn about Islam now. He also said that Islamic scholars are very important for true understanding of Islam. He talks about scholars being specialists in Islam. I would rather prefer taking a positive stance on him, with a hope that Allah will one day give him complete Hidayah and bring him into complete Islam. But all in all, what i like about this person is that he publicly says he is proud to be a Muslim. He just needs to learn the proper Islam to strengthen his stance on this.

But in order for my readers to understand, i would like to clear what Kufr is. As far as the teachings of Islam are concerned, Kufr is a serious matter. A belief of this kind takes people out of the fold of Islam entirely. There is no room for any kind of Kufr in Islam.  Unless a person stops committing Kufr, he cannot call himself a Muslim because Muslims belief (i.e. Imaan) and kufr don’t go hand in hand, they are rather two opposites. A person can either be a Muslim or be a Non Muslim. There is no role in between these two called half Muslim and half Non Muslim.

An appeal to his Muslim fans: You may consider him good actor, nice person, good intellect and your favorite personality, but don’t make the mistake of learning Islam currently from him. He is yet to learn a lot about the basic fundamentals about Islam. He needs to know the true Islam and simultaneously denounce Kufr. Anyone who agrees with the Kufr that he speaks, has himself fallen into Kufr. Take my 2 cents, Becoming fans of personalities like Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) or his companions will be worthwhile in this life and in hereafter. Also if we really love Shahrukh Khan, then let us make an effort in bringing him into the real Islam. The Islam that is taught by Quran and Sunnah and not the Islam of celebrities. Shahrukh is intelligent and polite person. I don’t think that he would say ‘NO” if you walk up to him and request for sometime to speak about Islam. I don’t know if this would happen, but inshallah, if i get an opportunity, i will surely present the correct Islam to Shahrukh.

and if ever Shahrukh Khan happens to read this article of mine, i only appeal to him to give us a meeting appointment so that we get a chance to present the true Islam to him. Surely much better life awaits us in the hereafter than the life of this world.

If you really want to be a fan of a person who comes on TV and Videos, then a million times better hero than Shahrukh Khan was sitting on the center stage who was ignored by the Media; That was Dr. Zakir Naik! 🙂

We can only pray to Allah to give Shahrukh Khan hidayah and get him to the true path of Islam. And if someone has the means to reach him to do Da’wah, call us up!

Note: For those of my readers who don’t understand what Kufr is, please check it out here: KUFR

Soha Ali khan: This lady had no clue why she was sitting there. Looks like she owed to NDTV or else why would NDTV punish her by making her sit in the show? 🙂 This woman has no idea what Islam is nor does she know what faith is. She says her religion is a personal matter with God. Gosh! such a pathetic argument of the past. It’s no use talking about her role in the show.

Dr. Zakir Naik: He needs to understand that such shows are meant to just punch each others argument with a single liner. One cannot try to explain big concepts in just few seconds. Although his statements were bold, huge and true; too much of noise pollution sidelined them to some extent. To top this, Burkha dutt as expected did not give fair time to Dr Zakir naik. This was clearly evident.

But hold on, that’s Zakir naik 🙂 ! He just doesn’t walk away without really sparking a thought process in people’s mind irrespective of how much time he is given. And as i thought, he did the same. If you carefully observe his statements, they tickled the brain of the viewers who would later go and check its authenticity. He knew there were millions of people watching the show (including viewers who don’t watch Peace TV) and he took this as a golden opportunity to ignite the spark of re-investigating the 911 attack, which was the origin of this entire concept of Terrorism and Muslims getting stereotyped.

He cleared informed there were 75  DVDs released of top American analysts and professors who proved that 911 was inside job. He also quoted two site names before Burkha Dutt cut him off. He quoted (and one more site name which slipped my mind). People would surely go back and check these and hence find out the truth for themselves. So even though time given to him was not fair, he completed his job. He made the following punching lines:

  • There is nothing called moderate or liberal Muslim. There is only Practicing Muslim, Partially practicing Muslim and Non Practicing Muslim.
  • It is a duty of a Muslim to tell others about the truth of Islam.
  • Blaming Osama bin laden or Taliban to be Terrorists based on CNN and BBC versions is wrong and unfair. It is important to give fair hearing to such allegations and check the truth before blaming someone to be terrorists. The videos shown are nothing but morphed which generally Media is good at.
  • 911 was an inside job and cannot be performed by Arabs.
  • Physical appearance (beard, cap etc) do not come under 70 major sins of Islam. So there are more important things over and above the physical appearance in Islam. But to follow complete Islam, physical look is important.

These statements were more than enough to make people think twice about their stance. Shahrukh himself was carefully listening to these arguments and looked impressed. (That’s my observation, maybe i am wrong 🙂 ).

Also he boldly spoke out the truth, without fearing anyone unlike others. His confidence showed his trust on Allah and how he can go to any limit to speak the truth without fearing anything.

All in all, Zakir naik completed his Dawah to all the viewers of NDTV! May Allah preserve him!

Najeeb Jung: This person looked like one of those who everyone in the show were referring as “Lunatic Fringe”! Well actually this word was being used by all the “so called” Muslims on the center stage (except Dr. Naik and Moulana Madani) for the scholars of Islam. But in reality, all of them were a part of that “Lunatic Fringe” team. The guy sounded more like a Zionist than a Muslim. Well what can i comment on him, lets leave him to his own person.

The best part was when a bearded elderly man (Dr. Shoeb, ain’t that you 😉 ), asked if Islam has multiple definitions or just one definition from Quran and Sunnah. He raised this question whenever every “moderate” Muslim on the center stage were giving their version of definition of Islam. One said, you must feel Islam; while another one said you must not show Islam, while the third one said “Islam is my private matter with God”! LOL 🙂

Conclusion of this show:

  • Shahrukh and karan were given more time compared to others as if only they represent Islam.
  • The show disrespected such eminent personalities of Muslim world like Dr. Zakir Naik and Moulana Mahmoud Madani by not allowing them to speak about the topic.
  • Barkha Dutt once again showed her biasness towards wanting Muslims to give up their real Islam and adopt the so called modern Islam. She mercilessly called the scholars of Islam as “Lunatics” and kept on giving opportunity to those who would speak against the real Islam. The whole show looked like a pre-planned setup and not a natural debate.

We expect better show quality from NDTV and fair anchor-ship from Barkha Dutt!

  1. Fantastic judgement ! Ali sahab.

    Barkha dutt never gave chance to Mr naik to speak about real islam.Because she knew very well ,if she gives a chance to Mr naik ,he will sidelined every celebrity on that show.But a man still done his job.Salute toMr NAIK.

  2. well done ,
    imran bhai i think u r good analyst
    i appreciate ur work
    please tell me if u r on orkut & if u r there then contact me throhgh my email

  3. Salaim alaikum bro,
    Great observations about yestedays show we the people.I have posted your conclusions on barkahs website.

    Awaitig her reply

  4. this was totally an anti islamic move by barkha dutt
    to make a topic on islam by so called muslims
    and as usual want to supress dr Zakir Niak for delivering truth

  5. Asak brother…

    i completely agree with your analysis.
    Its like you want to know about ” World cuisine” and your asking people who just happened to be in a kitchen or might have just about made an egg ……ask the “Chefs” !!!!

  6. Dear Imran,

    Your comments on this program is very ideal & realistic, this was in my mind & you have scribed it & its really well written & its the fact, after 20 minutes of program Dr. Zakir Naik was not given a chance ! i was wondering why ! yes bharak dutt didnt want to give Dr Naik a chance but with the time given he has proved his point .

    Sharief – Dammam

  7. Sarfaraz Ali Khan

    Assalaamwaleykum bhai
    It is very obvious that had Barkha given a chance to Zakir the amount of time which she gave to Sharukh and Karan, Dr Zakir naik would have surely ripped of the double standard talks used by the Media. Mark my words inspite of the website told by Dr Zakir Naik the any god damn Indian media does not the guts to telecast it on air bet on it.

  8. that show was wrost cz they (ndtv) didnt give much tym to the great speaker…..when the great speaker (NAIK SIR) talked on osama then barkha shocked n reply in very bad manner which was ..”oh come on naik”….MR NAIK WILL say olways truth …and i knew that NAIK sir will say 2+2=4…he wont say = 5 …but they want to listen….ALLAH hu akbar

  9. as ,it was really a bad show zakir naik was not given time to speak they were just interested in srk, and stupid karan and kabir actually are just a label Muslim they only know that they are Muslim by generation but they did not want to practice Islam but they want the Muslim to keep religion aside and be like them

  10. Asssalamualikum WaRahmatullahi WarBarakaatuhu My brother in Islam.

    I totally for what you had to say, I must admit, a very good analysis was done by you. Alhamdulillah.
    The auestion on Bin laden was very well planned, the media knows the answer what Dr.Zakir usually gives, i don’t understand how even Dr Zakir missed this trick, May Allah protect him. The answer to the question was to replied with answer that would need people to know the Islamic stance. Look, if we start to explain about what bin ladens ideals are people will not listen, the media you know well they know how to make the easy matter crooked. The best in the situation is to simply say, ” Irrespective of whoever does …..such does such and such act, the Islamic stance should have been made clear …. But the refuting approach narrowed down the street to Zakir…Barkah stopped him, again she stopped until she threw the ball in Alex court…!

    Nevertheless, when I see such kind of things happening with us Muslims I only think of this hadith:

    From Abu Hurayrah radiallahu ’anhu, who said that Allâh’s Messenger sallallâhu ’alayhi wa sallam said: “There will come upon the people years of deceit in which the liar will be believed, the truthful one disbelieved, the treacherous will be trusted and the trustworthy-ones considered to be treacherous, and the Ruwaybidah (despicable-ones) will speak out.” It was said: Who are the Ruwaybidah? He said: “The lowly, ignoble man who speaks out about public affairs.”

    Hasan sahih and Related by Ahmad (no.7899), Ibn Mâjah (no.4036) and others

    May Allah make his word supreme and guard us among the mischief makers and grant us sabr, istiqmah in dealing with the mistakes of the people.

  11. it high time for shahrukh to stop barbie talk about islam and stop using islam to get a good image among his fans .just saying Insha ALLAH will never make anybody a muslims and muslims are not idiots to accept his type of Islam
    they can compromise on anything except Islam
    i feel , karan will become a Muslim soon and hope he will not use Islam as shahrukh is using
    soha ali, yet another child with her barbie doll
    as far as Dr.Naik , he is a misfit among morons who think they are super intellectuals

  12. Maryam Z Nazneen


    The show really looked biased but earlier I thought that Barkha Dutt would sensibly take it on, but she dint. Perhaps, they were trying to prove something to the world and Allah knows best what true intentions they had as such. It all looked more like a game plan rather than a proper group discussion. Probably, they wanted to show how true they are with their dumb ideologies regarding religion, regarding life, and so on by portraying the imbecile ideologies of some so called high profile but dumb personalities like Shahrukh Khan, Kabir Khan, Soha Ali Khan and of course Mr. Najeeb Jung (who was more into poetry 🙂 rather than being focused on what is being talked about) and these so called influential personalities looked more of people suffering from some kind of paranoia.

    May Allah preserve Dr. Zakir Naik and prosper him in every endeavour he takes up for Islam whether it is against the blasphemous acts of some section or a larger section whatever. And if the media thinks that they could invite people like Dr. Zakir Naik and suppress them there, then they are actually living in a wrong notion! Well Barkha Dutt herself expressed that Zakir Naik appears more on TV than her (now i think whether it was a sarcastic remark or not), but it was true and she had to admit that. So hope she gets her equations right the next time she invites eminent personalities like Dr. Zakir Naik and holds such GDs.

  13. alhamdulillah thanx Mr. Imran for such a beautiful observation on that NDTV debate issue among all those speakers…. i think what Dr. Zakir Naik did within this short time under all surrounding diplomatic pressure by different wrong thoughts & views….. allah bless Dr. Zakir Naik
    from Chittagong, Bangladesh

  14. dear imran, interesting observations and yes you are right, such shows are not to propogate Islam, rather it is to discredit the credible scholars and people…

    whenever a non-muslim invites a scholar/researcher to his/her/their show, its only to discredit them…the words are twisted and taken out of context… the more effort these people are doing to discredit Islam, the more Islam will shine…

    its the nature of human body or any other item/thing/object/mass which Lord Almighty created to bow down to HIM in submission, just like lies would not be disgested in a human body and the lips/eyes/ears/limbs revolt when a person tells a lie (ofcourse there are exceptions to this as well), but in general, a person’s soul will not be at rest, till it accepts what its supposed to do, i.e., believe in ALLAH, bow down to HIM and seek refuge in HIM…

    we all know that its useless to argue with the people, i.e., non-muslims, unless they want to discuss about Islam and not just bicker about few bad apples…

    yes, 9/11 was indeed an inside job, if arabs were so smart in flying planes to Pentagon and WTC and other places, then there would have been many more 9/11’s even before the “9/11/2001” or after….the atrocities committed by non-muslims in the name of democracy/liberation of rights is all crap…

    Islam threatens the way of life to all those who are don’t know that there will be a final reckoning or a judgment….Lord Almighty will as judge with JUSTNESS and it will be HIS decision as to who will be given salvation and otherwise.

    there is an ongoing project called: check it out…its very much relevant in times like these….

  15. Assalaamualaikum to All,

    Yes I agree with you Brother and to my believe except for Mr. Naik all these other have no Right to Define the Identity of My religion. The show host Barkha Dutt and all the Panelist except for Mr.Zakir and (to some extend) Mr. Madani rest all are the perfect example of Hypocrites /Munafiqs.

    I think its actually good not to talk about these Hypocrites since in today’s world it does not matter what you are talking, it’s only about whom you are talking. Publicity is now a days publicity, even though its negative. You are making people popular even though you have negative statements for them…

    And I completely condemned NDTV….for what they have been trying to potray our religion as.

    Assalaamualaikum Wa Rehmatullah

    Below are the comments of one of my Unlce and I completely agree with him…..

    After watching the show below is my reaction…

    I not surprised neither I am disappointed nor I am sad but it motivates me, gives me hope, inspires me that those who follow Quran and Sunnah will not fear any one any where expect Allah swt. In spite of being given very little air time Mr Naik articulated to 160 million Indian Muslims a very beautiful definition of Muslim –“The one who submits to the will of Allah swt by following the Quran and Sunnah of Muhammad PBUH”.

    What kind of a father Mr Sharukh is when he himself said that he wants his child to say to the world that he is a christian? — I brand him a Non Muslim who has nothing to do with ISLAM.——— STOP WATCHING HIS MOVIES. These people are afraid of their business, fame and money.

    What kind of a person is Mr Najeed who in spite of sitting right to Mr Naik was embarrassed to see the beautiful faces of Muslims in beard or in hijab. — He does not represent me and he is not a Muslim.

    What kind of a person is Ms Soha Ali who by mistake happens to born to a Muslim Father Patudi… She said religion is her private matter so what gives her permission to define the identity of Muslim?

    Mr Kabir Khan sitting on the far right should have been a Hindu that would have suited him better. He was accusing Mujaheddin of Allah…. Shame on this person and he does not represent Muslims…. Kick him out…

    Last but not the least media savvy person OUR OWN MADANI SAHEB — Does not know what he was talking…. just came to propagate in chorus “I issued a fatwa that any one who kills innocent people are out of the fold of Islam” —- He is a government puppet… He was liked by all the kuffars on the panel except Dr Naik.

    Shame on the panelist except Dr Zakir Naik… for showing their hypocrisy.


    Jazakallah khair…

    قُلۡ إِن كَانَ ءَابَآؤُكُمۡ وَأَبۡنَآؤُڪُمۡ وَإِخۡوَٲنُكُمۡ وَأَزۡوَٲجُكُمۡ وَعَشِيرَتُكُمۡ وَأَمۡوَٲلٌ ٱقۡتَرَفۡتُمُوهَا وَتِجَـٰرَةٌ۬ تَخۡشَوۡنَ كَسَادَهَا وَمَسَـٰكِنُ تَرۡضَوۡنَهَآ أَحَبَّ إِلَيۡڪُم مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ وَجِهَادٍ۬ فِى سَبِيلِهِۦ فَتَرَبَّصُواْ حَتَّىٰ يَأۡتِىَ ٱللَّهُ بِأَمۡرِهِۦ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ لَا يَہۡدِى ٱلۡقَوۡمَ ٱلۡفَـٰسِقِينَ (٢٤


    Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight are dearer to you than Allâh and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause[], then wait until Allâh brings about His Decision (torment). And Allâh guides not the people who are Al-Fâsiqûn (the rebellious, disobedient to Allâh) (24)

  16. Askm,

    Total waste of time. Barkha Dutt neither allowed Dr Naik to speak nor did she gave enough space and time to him. The show was only about SRK, Karan and kabir. Dr Naik was interrupted when he tried to put across the facts of his research over 9/11. One can easily notice many times he raised his hands to answer the queries from the audiences but was ignored and answers/viewpoints were asked from Shahruk, Karan, Kabir etc. People who knew little about Islam and claim to be less/non practicing were talking about Islam and scholars were just made to smile and sit, every tom,dick and harry was present to make it crowded. In totality, I would say maximum 4 minutes were given to Dr Naik out of 1 hour…A real pathetic way of conducting a discussion. People who follow their own beliefs were sitting in the middle of the panel ruling the roost while others were sidelined…Almost every fortnight one can see Shahrukh on NDTV giving his opinions and interviews, every one is aware of what he says and believes there was no point of asking same thing again and again from him despite knowing his hypocritical and diplomatic answers. People were interested and hooked on to the show because of Dr Naik and eventually felt cheated and dejected. This has anyway showed the double character and biased attitude of Barkha Dutt and media at large.

  17. assalamualaikum..
    i completely agree with ur analysis….
    bharak dutt given a chance to Dr Zakir naik to speak only 7-8min only…
    but for sharukh and karan more than 20 min…the time given to Dr Zakir naik has used completly….

  18. Abdulla Madumoole

    Dear Imran,

    Good analysis , I too felt Zakir was totally sidelined. I have written a mail to Dr Zakir in this respect.
    I don’t agree with the point Dr Zakir Naik made about 9/11. His arguments, though may be logical and correct, gives an impression that he supports Osama and the group. There is no need for Dr Naik or for us to try to prove that 9/11 was not done by Osama. Our job is to condemn the terrorist act whoever has done it. When we try to prove that it was not done by Osama, for the outer world it looks like we are siding with Osama. Our stand should be, if we doubt that it wasn’t done by Osama, ” we don’t know” .
    You have correctly analyzed that Sharukh and Karan did the talking for us but I could make a difference here. Both of them were talking for the Muslims as a community and not for Islam as such. Sharukh’s philosophy has indeed changed a lot, of late.

  19. Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barkatuhu, and Waliakum Assalaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barkatuhu for all who posted this greetings.

    I appreciate your comments and views about the show, Imran Ali Bhai. I also appreciate people who commented and will comment on this views.

    I request all of you to just pray to Allah for his guidance on whoever have watched this show. We must understand the purpose of Dr. Zakir Naik attending this show. It is one and only – DA’WAH. I think many of us and others in India will definitely go home and think about this show for atleast a week and do some homework about Islam.

    I again request you all to pray to Allah to increase our knowledge and hikmah in Da’wah activities.

  21. Syed Abdul Hameed

    Excellent Analysis.
    Alhamdulillah, May Allah Strengthen your belief and power of writing.

    It was all biased and if the time was given to Dr. Zakir was a total of 3 minutes.

    But yet Alhamdulillah he touched the sensitive issues.

    I Pray to Allah that He guides S.R.Khan to the right path, as he was respecting Ulemas and admitting him being wrong.
    My sincere Duas for Him.

    Barkha, she ironically comented Dr. Zakir saying “You appear on TV more Than I”, what she wanted to say there ?

    It looks that she has some psychosomatic problem.

    Allahumma Inna Nau-zu-bika min Shu-roori-him wa Naj-aluka fi Nu-Hu-ri-him.

    Wassalaamu Ala Manittaba-al Huda.

  22. Brother Imran, great observation indeed. I totaly agree with you.

  23. Assalamu alaikum wrwb,

    Well done brother, keep up the good work, you have spoken for millions of people of this Ummah.

    JazakAllah khair

  24. MashAllah!!!
    JazakAllah Qair for ur efforts.
    May Allah increase ur knowledge and reward u in this world and hereafter.

  25. Good debate, but brothers it is obvious they did not host the show to project Zakir Naik. It is the echo of Naik and his message and mission that they just can not ignore him anymore (Dutt said as “you are on TV more than me”). So even that 3 minutes i would say “Ghaneemat” atleast now Zakir Naik is on electronic media other than Peace TV guys, let us celebrate, that now Inshallah he will represent the true message everywhere not just Peace TV or IRF. The time has come the reality could not be ignored anymore. Now 3 minutes, he was interviewed earlier in Walk the Talk NDTV before. I would say thanks to NDTV otherwise what if they don’t invite him at all ? seeing NDTV now im sure some other channels will try to host him some where some time now to please a big number of muslim customers (after all muslims are the big customers of cable TV , WE WATCH TV MORE THAN READING QURAN AND HADEETH GUYS) Let us be positive and concentrate on positive, the situation is worsening everyday, we should be moving ahead getting along with everyone and show we are not any different people guys and more over we are better than many if you really see our inside, (Kuntum khaira ummatin….as Naik told there) , I won’t argue Naik’s stand but we don’t have to just deny about those BAD GUYS , Naik said “I won’t beleive in what media shows so i don’t know” (Dutt said Come on Dr Naik over that), there are some bad guys who are really causing much damage to Islam than enemies, I liked the way Madani took stand for that, yes do not beleive without evidence but nothing wrong in saying as “We don’t beleive without evidence but Yes if anyone really doing that we condemn that”. Madani dealt this thing way better than Naik in my opinion. So let us make dua that Allah provide these 3 minutes on all plat forms to us like on NDTV, something is better than to say our word than having no chance. I think no use of complaining to Burkha Dutt that she did not give enough time to Zakir Naik, ofcourse they won’t, but by inviting him more than once they accepted that what Zakir Naik says really makes sense. No complains let us write to NDTV and Dutt saying thanks nice show, we want more like that, let us write to NDTV and different channels as viewers that we want this, If we can manage some atleast 5000 or 10,000 emails / letters demanding programs of Zakir Naik or interviews they may host that inshallah why not. So let us put effort that way (complaining is not going to make things any better).

  26. Good one Imran.
    Salam alai kum.

  27. Salaam alaikum all,
    First of, I thank Mr. Imran Ali from the bottom of my heart for his keen analysis of the show; his points really made my heart teemed with elation, since I was literally disappointed with the show.
    And I thank all the readers of this blog who patiently read the review and commented on it. I personally agree with brother Ibrahim, who made really good points; that “I think no use of complaining to Burkha Dutt that she did not give enough time to Zakir Naik, ofcourse they won’t, but by inviting him more than once they accepted that what Zakir Naik says really makes sense. No complains let us write to NDTV and Dutt saying thanks nice show, we want more like that, let us write to NDTV and different channels as viewers that we want this…”; I think, we need to be bit optimistic and request them to telecast, Dr. Naik’s shows.

  28. Syed Abdul Quader


    I totally agree with you.while watching this program i was knowing she ll not give time to Zakir Naik to put up his point….

  29. the show was just made to tell people(the world) that we the muslims are ourselves not on the right path……………its jus the name being with us. there were LIVE examples….just made a show-off by giving themselves a “moderate muslims”……….. for their own satisfaction..

  30. If somebody asks a barber about Heart Operation because even barbers use Scissors and Knife when you have world famous Heart Doctor present in front of you, what do you think such kind of person as.


    You win not get an award for guessing it.
    absolutely correct Lunatic.

    In front of Zakir Naik and Madani she is asking about islam to Shah rukh, Kabir, zoya, two more barbers.
    Is Barkha, Intelligent, Smart, Lunatic.

    Answer Lunatic.

  31. Congratulations ! Imran and all the commentators. Keep it up !

    As salam alaikum ,

    Dear brother & sisters in islam.

    the article posted by our brother is alhumdulillah z excellent .
    though i did not c the show due to business activities , having seen MNIK i appreciated shah rukh attitude and changes , two days earlier he was also gvng an interview to Mr. Riz khan on Al – Jazeera , though the tinings of these can be assumed as a platform for promoting his movie….bad luck for soha as being from a muslim back ground ..she should have participated in the discussion..eevn our children know the basics steps….barkha dutt is a tv gimick …i have seen her previous shows …no chnages…yes Mr. Zakir is right that we should try to justify ourselves and evaluate what we are doing and become more practicing muslim ..starting with basics and 5 time punctual prayer..even though i am not punctual at times but the fear f the punishment in the grave ..gvs me the creeps ..every night i g fr sleep…..but when u wakwe up ..i thank god fr gvng me a day more to ask fr his humble forgiveness and try t share about islam and practice it …sincere request is to have a god communication with ur friends , families , parents and non muslim friends. the world is a better place if we are united as others are.
    Let us give our kids a good world to live and spread the message f peace…everywhere u hear suicides, deaths , rapes , child abuse , gay and lesbian rights….please please educate everyone about the anti – social activities proagating in our neighbour hood , schools etc. inshallah we can do it>.talk t our children and educate them about good and bad.common problem seen is also old age , parents are getting ignored…u will be one 2 so do not ignore ur parents during their old age ..pick up the phone and call….may be they will hug u and their blessings and dua will give u shifa….
    thank u all and jazak allah kahiran

  33. Come On Imran. If we had to be so nervous by situations like this, we would better start meditating and zikr whole life instead of taking up a cause like dawah. Let 99% muslims not practise and only 1% practise (may allah make all of us among those 1% if it is as such, though it is not, alhamdulillah muslims and even non muslims are getting more closer to Islam) Are those 99% doing any bad to Islam or ummah ? No they are harming themselves. So what? even if entire humankind become muttaqoon, Allah’s greatness is same and even if entire mankind deny him his greatness is not even a fraction is gonna be less. So we should keep doing Dawah for non muslims, Islah for muslims together and always. Results we do not even have to look at it. Even in the time of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahualiahiwasallam, there was Abdullah Ibn Ubay and many like that. Why we are disheartend by Shahrukh , kabeer and Soha ? It is challenge for us if we can correct them / and it is destiny for them if they can get corrected or not. All humans are children of adam and hawwa guys, we are the children of same parents. Let us have a pain for all, Islah of any one calling himself muslims and dawah for all who are not muslims – It is Allah who grants taufeeq or guidance not da’ees. For a Da’ee all are good except shaytan, da’ee should have pain and concern for all, work to protect everyone from shaytan and bring every one towards god. We should be happy that Zakir N

We should be happy that Zakir Naik is on NDTV, otherwise we use to have him just on Peace TV and IRF. Hope we will have him on every channel in India and around the world, no matter if he is given a chance to speak just a sentence. His long speeches we will have on peace TV, no problem. We should call Barkha Dutt to Peace TV once for one show some time and Zakir Naik will host, let her say what ever she thinks about Islam and Muslims and in the end conclusion Let Zakir Naik say what is right in contrary to what Dutt, Shahrukh, Soha, kabeer,Karan and Habeen say and think.

  35. Thanks for all the comments people.

    However, the most interesting is that of Arshiya, which starts our thought process. She did point us towards one very important aspect which many of us missed. That is the condition of our Ummah. The show was a perfect example of the condition in which our Ummah is. Just about 20% are religious while remaining 80% are illiterates and ignorant about Islam.

    So i guess those people who say working on Muslims is more important than Non Muslims as far as Da’wah is concerned, i am beginning to agree with them. 🙂

  36. Dear Sir

    I post your comments on facebook so more people can look at
    hope i might no do any thing wrong

  37. I would like to request to all people kindly watch that debet which was held on ndtv where the speaker dr naik was quit why the reason is becz this was a pre plan debat where burkha give more chance karan sharuk as compare to dr naik i would to ask question to ndtv if u want to represent to islam than why u must be give more chance to who know well islam but as far as debet concerned that was a drama which was forced to people u must be become a moderate muslim.

  38. Assalamalaikum,

    Truth is always bitter and hence, Dr. Zakir Naik was given a very little time to speak the Truth.
    I am happy that atleast he was given a chance to speak the Truth.The others were speaking irrelavant.

  39. Well i saw the show, Read all comments, My observation is as follows:
    1.Enough time not given to Dr Naik
    2.Dr Naik goofed up when asked about Osama “the Terrorist” self proclaims. who is Dr Naik to stand up to the man who has put the entire ummah down in worlds eyes. Remember we live with fear for our children and are doubted everywhere because of a handfull of ill informed Idiots.
    Islam does not allow small groups to go to war on their own it has to be between nations only.
    Well thanx to Mr Madani who saved the day for us by taking over the responsibility of answering Barkhas Ques thrown to Dr Naik by himself.
    Let all people be advised to think,act,behave,and talk more maturely- as my friends we are living in a world that is totally convinced that most muslims encourage ppl like Osama.
    Because your every action will impact our future generations and we have no right to spoil that for our children.

  40. Barkha dutt never gave chance to Mr naik to speak about real Islam.Because she knew very well ,if she gives a chance to Mr naik ,he will sidelined every celebrity on that show.But a man still done his job.Salute toMr NAIK

  41. i saw this program and also recorded it, i felt Dr Zakir naik should have been given enough time which i knew they wont….because he quotes Quran and sahih hadith which the kafirs don’t like. I also knew barkha will not give enough time to the right people to explain, this is not the first time it has happened in lot of debates earlier also especially on purdah. Anyway, whatever happens, Islam will prevail, the truth will prevail, we as Muslims have to be careful in following our religion and have to set an example before non Muslims and follow our faith sincerely and correctly and do dawah in all stages of our life, rest Allah will take care. We want more and more scholars who speak the language better like for example SKR, he speaks well even though he has agreed is not having much knowledge on Islam, Maqsood

  42. sorry but the person who reviewed and wrote this has NO CLUE about Islam and the agenda of Shahrukh Khan…

    Shahrukh Khan is promoting a sick and perverted type of Islam to others, where anything you can do is ok, the guy makes his son read the “geeta mantra” and does pooja with him, has a temple in his house for God’s sakes and married a hindu and that too with hindu customs and traditions!!!!…EF01E7&index=6
    the movie “my name is Khan” does nothing to improve that, in fact they show that a religious man can marry a hindu (he is married to a hindu in the movie), and in the NDTV show one said that in the movie srk’s mother teaches him that “there are no good Muslims or bad Muslims, good Hindus or bad Hindus, but good human beings and bad human beings”, which is a blatant secular teaching, although our first criterion is ISLAM……
    I really pity those who are fooled by Shahrukh Khan, he knows how to manipulate them, he just uses “inshaAllah, mashaAllah” every now and then and the Muslims go crazy saying look how he never forgets Allah, what they dont see is how he is living his life, a perfect hypocrite, doing everything to please the Hindus/Zionists, watch the youtube link above as it will further expose him..This man acted in a nude scene in one of his earlier movies just to rise into fame!!!

  43. Sabiha Zafar Inamdar

    I am in total agreement with the view posted by Mr. Imran Ali. Ms. Soha seemed like a model sitting in an atmosphere which found her totally unfit. ms. Barkha Dutt was totally biased and yes, she disrespcted the Islamic Scholars , Dr. Zakir Naik and Moulana Madani. In fact, they should have been given maximum time to orient public with Islamic knowledge as Shahrukh and Karan Johar can only opinine on films!!!!! and definitely not on Islam. yes, Dr. Zakir Naik was given very little time, but in that little time, he could convey very vital points which has kept us all thinking and convinced. Kudos to Dr. Zakir Naik who once again captured attention of millions! NDTV better learn to be unbiased!!

  44. Dear Saleh,

    Yes Of course, what you said is actually the view that i hold about Shahrukh Khan. He is of course always busy with doing anything that takes him to fame. However, Though on one hand Seerah of Prophet teaches us to be alert in identifying the hypocrites, yet it also teaches us to be positive towards approaching other personalities.

    The few statements made by Shahrukh Khan does not make him a Good Muslim, rather it may be a spark to become a proper Muslim in future. We can only pray for Hidayah to come to him and who knows something might change.

    If you analyze, i also praised what Karan Johar said although he is a kaafir. If someone points out something good, we must appreciate it. But that does not necessarily mean that we have to be follow that person in all his actions.

    So essentially my review about Shahrukh is only based on the show we saw and what he said. If he mentioned Scholars are very important to get the correct understanding of Islam, then he is right. Do we differ in that? If he says that Islam doesn’t teach Terrorism, do we differ from it? No. That means when good is spoken out of bad, it yet remains good. That is what i appreciated here. Let’s keep his past aside and hope for the best in his future as a Muslim. Lately he has been quite restless with huge amounts of questions bombarding on him about him being Muslim. Now his answers are sometimes NONSENSE, it is because he doesn’t have proper knowledge. In front of billions of people, maybe he is just blabbering what comes to his mouth without sound knowledge.

    But as for Shahrukh to prove himself, he is yet to run a lot of miles to come back to Islam. You just don’t know when Allah changes heart. Who knows the process might be ON. And most importantly, for all those who blame such people to be bad Muslims, how many of us have really given him Da’wah? If a Non Muslims heart can change and he can come to Islam, why can’t Da’wah change people like Shahrukh?? Let’s not forget there are millions of people out there who were really bad in their life yet came to Islam.

    So let’s only pray to Allah for all such people to come to the right path.

  45. Dabir Ahmed Shaikh

    When i was informed about this programme, i scheduled myself and was waiting impatiently to hear Dr. Zakir Naik and so i presumed people like me were also anxious to view this progamme. Unfortunately, it was utterly disgusting on part of NDTV and Ms. Barkha Dutt who killed the total concept of the programme and brought non-practicing muslims on the stage instead of learned scholars Dr Zakir Naik and Moulana Madani. I feel its high time that people like you, who have brought up this issue in the media should propagate the correct msg of islam to the world all over and condemn such programmes, in future.

  46. Very fair and orderly criticism on that TV show. Good Job, Jazak Allah khair

  47. dear Ali,

    I am sorry to say I differ with you, if he came out on the show and said some universal truths about Islam, he did nothing special..

    And one has to look at the past and present of the person, this is not easy to comprehend but one has to dig deep to see what shahrukh khan actually is, because any average Muslim knows that praying to an idol is not Islam, yet he does that along with his children, but this is not the point, his production company is a devious one, not only the logo of it represents some evil societies but he is producing a movie titled “Ra. 1”

    and why did he/his company pick such a title???? what is the history behind the word “Ra”

    surely this cannot be just a coincidence, I urge you to watch the Bollywood Xposed series (14 parts on youtube), it will shed some light on this subject and all will be clear to you..these Khans are nothing but agents of other people in power set to destroy the human mind and enslave it…no wonder we have Muslim sisters who would probably give their lives for shahrukh khan!!!!!

  48. where is my reply to you? or do you only put comments from people once and then ignore them later?

    shahrukh khan is not doing anything good for Islam, infact he is doing great work for enemies of Islam….

  49. Assalamalaikum, Dear Saleh,

    First of all have patience till your comments get moderated and published on the blog. We cannot let spammers and those who use foul language (like christian missionaries) to let their comments on our site unless they speak sensibly and professionally.

  50. Dear Saleh,

    Secondly, There is no need of pushing the point that Shahrukh is not doing anything good for Islam because that’s an open fact he is of course destroying the name of Islam more. Bollywood, or any other similar media power is of course the handi work of Satan to trap the minds of masses. From entertainment industry to financial system of this world, the entire setup is Satans handiwork to take a person away from Allah and his Ibaadah.

    The points that i made are something you ignored. My statements are clear about him or anyone else for that matter who sails in his boat. I said if someone says something good about Islam which is in conciliation about Islam, then appreciate it. But appreciating does not necessarily mean that YOU AGREE OR ACCEPT ALL OF THAT PERSONS ACTION.

    Second point i made is very important. I said its high time that we target doing Da’wah to those who have a huge fan following. Someone like Michael Jackson, or big actors or actresses, or businessmen etc. Similarly, it was Seerah of Prophet (Pbuh) to target those people who are in authority to do Da’wah because with them automatically hundreds and thousands come into the fold of Islam. So i only say, do Da’wah to him as much as one can.

    We do Da’wah field work every Sunday. We know how much effort it takes to walk through and find people to talk to, then convince the person about the truth. But lately we have started targeting people having authority like those in police, politics, education etc whose acceptance of truth makes a difference to the society and their fan following.

    As for Shahrukhs actions, its purely that of a Kaafirs. Not offering salah, having temple with idol at home, teaching children kufriya stuff, promoting nudity and fahshaiyath, etc. But irrespective of the persons actions, whether Muslim or Non Muslim, never lose hope to show him the light and always pray for hidayah to come to such people from Allah. We have such people all around us, and we need to concentrate on both the things – Making people aware of Satanic army as well as doing Da’wah and not losing hope that Allah will give Hidayah to others.

    Bollywood exposed is a beautifully prepared video and a must see for all. I had seen this when it was first released. Here is the link for those who are reading this comment:


  51. Dear Mr. Imran,

    fair enough….

    I really hope Muslims (especially bollywood fans) to open their minds and evaluate themselves, how can Muslims sit together (or alone for that matter) and watch that filth, especially disgusting is when parents watch them with their children, dont they see what effect will that have on children as they grow up?????!!! unfortunately it is programs like these on NDTV which further make Muslims view Shahrukh Khan and the likes as an authority on Islam..
    may Allah guide us all to the right path

  52. may peace, mercy & blessings of almighty Allah(swt) be on you all,

    Today i happeneed to see the program, we the people, in which all the bollywood people were there, along with brother zakir, and i am totally unhappy to tell that MEDIA ONCE AGAIN PLAYED DOUBLE STANDARDS, barkha dutt, supposed to be a generalist, forgot the rights of “TIME ALLOTMENT”. many questions asked to zakir bhai were given only maximum 30seconds to answer, were as others were given 2-3minutes.
    All the answers to the questions were interrupted by others, to cut down brother’s answer & to get it out of context.





  53. Dear Brothers/sisters
    Be careful of film “My name is Khan” that is against the Islamic facts. Khan is just ‎Muslim by name; he does not have Iman in his heart. If he would have Iman he ‎would never choose film profession as his source of income which is haram second he ‎would never marry a non-Muslim that he is conducting Zina with his wife. At present his advising through film people to do same. These ‎people are hypocrite Muslim (rationalist) they do not want to be under the region they ‎wanted keep religion under him to use as per their convenience.‎

    Do not follow these people follow Allah’s quaran for marriage Allah says:

    ‎“and verily, a believing slave is better than a (free) Mushrik (idolater), even though he pleases ‎you” [al-Baqarah 2:221]‎

  54. Allah is always with truth.This media themselve showed that they were wrong and not true people.As Allah said ‘Truth stands out clear from falsehood’.Though Br.Zakir naik was not given chance but Allah showed the world through their channel how patient he was and peaceful to tolerate their injustice.If shahrukh khan and others wants to lead their lives according to their perspective without following the rules of Allah,they are at loss and not realizing it now.But when the truth will come in front of them till that time it will be very late for them to tell now i want to be a practising muslim.They may live a wealthy and famous life in this world but what will be their fate after they die?not thinking…May Allah give hidaya to all human kind to walk on straight path and give Br.Zakir Naik more knowledge and power to stand firm for islam and proctect him always.Ameen All our prayers are with him.

  55. well a great topic to be discussed but mishandled by the so called – peoples voice (media). everyone please think once, if this movie was not on muslims would there be any existence for this debate on NDTV.y would any religion be disrespected or praised on the acts of its followers.every religion atlast has the same fundamentals.i strongly believe ISLAM never teaches hatred,killing of innocense etc neither any other relogions on earth. Someone is definitely responsible there to bring a black spot to the great religions like ISLAM. So plzz, media stop portraying islam as bad.

  56. True Indian Muslim

    Here is my humble contribution… I did see the show and I am sorry to say my views on this are diametrically opposite.. Let me explain this in perspective…

    My 1st point is on my take on these scholars / celebs who came for this show.. They are learned — they are scholars — and thats why they were called and none of us werent. They are scholars with far more exposure and guts to speak their minds rather than be typecast… I appreciate them for thinking differently – irrespective of their intensity of faith… Its very easy to pass judgements and comments about Alyque Padamsee, SRK, Soha ALi Khan, Kabir Khan etc…. I personally can say the same abt Dr. Z…. I find him to be very one tracked — My personal opinion….

    First of all – Why do people debate about Islam??
    To begin with – Its because of the fanatical statements that a minority of muslim extremists make that the name of the whole religion gets tarnished and I do agree when you tell me that Media is the reason but…. Again……. Can there be a Flame without a spark??

    I have an open question to throw to all of you –> There are extremists in other religions and there are fanatics in other religions – why is it that the religion doesnt get a bad name in those cases???
    My answer to that is the word “Jihad” which simply corrolates that the religion teaches the same… I dont know if you remember but soon after 9/11 I remember Osama having said on Video that he has been sent by Allah to fight this war —- For a minute think of yourself as a 3rd person from another religion viewing Islam… What will be your perspective?? Because we are born into Muslim families we know what Islam says and we also know the goodness… But how about an outsider ??? No religion teaches violence and eliminating ones brother to prove a point.. So how does a person from another religion view mine??.. Everyone is Allah’s creation is he not?? So whats all this about??? What if one of your relatives was in that flight in 9/11 or in the 2 towers that day or in the 26/11 attack?? Would you still say Osama or an Islamic extremist wasnt responsible (even after he came on TV, sent out videotapes etc.) — a few days back my blood boiled when I saw Hafiz Saeed say that “26/11 in Mumbai was a trailor – there is more to come!!! ” — Guys —> View this in perspective — where is that man’s respect for human life / god’s creation — what word is he spreading — what religion is he practising — which religions name is he tarnishing??? Allah has given each of us a mind to think – – So think for yourself…

    If anyone should be downcast out there it should be Dr.Z. He supposedly is a learned scholar and knows the in’s and outs’s of Islam… (Or so he says) … He says Osama is not responsible for the 9/11….He is spreading a wrong word again and thats a bad move as he has many followers…. I am sorry — but I beg to differ on this…. Websites, Journals, Media might say what they want but a persons words cant be altered…. What attire is Dr.Z dressed in?? Why does he pose for photos in a suit (why not wear the dress of the Arabs?) when he proclaims to go all out on Islam…. Considering this man has so many followers he shouldnt spread a wrong word saying Taliban, Osama etc. wasnt responsible for 9/11. Thats absolutely wrong – I dont go by what CNN / BBC or any other biased channels have said but by the people themselves who have taken ownership of whats happened. I dont think anywhere in our religion has something been mentioned as kill the innocent to prove a point (infact no religion teaches that) –> so again I wonder what these extremists were playing at… The fact that he perceives that Taliban and Osama arent responsible for 9/11 doesnt go down well with the audience… More judgements about Islam are made by the general public thanks to this hero !!

    Its very easy for us to sit in one safe country/state and enjoy the luxuries of living it up… Go try living in Congo, Mozambique, Iraq,Zaire etc….. The extremists from other religions will massacre you,……. Extremism in any form and any religion is nasty…. Its an evil to society and it should be suppressed…

    “By doing anything in excess – even a fruit of Jannat can turn into poison” – By writing this mail I didnt mean to hurt anyone’s sentiments – Am sorry if I have– instead I want to just reach out to all of you in my own little way to tell you that — although I am not a 5 time Namazi I do have certain values in me that I believe are in line with what Islam preaches… I am sure all of you are far better, pious and balanced muslims than me… I firmly believe that in my own little way I will try to make people change their wrong perception about Islam by projecting Islam to be a tolerant, humanity respecting religion….


    And P.S. – Barkha or nobody else was being biased… if anyone is biased its Dr. Z. Cmon — its a freakin debate where there will be differences of opinion… not a one tracked conversation !!

  57. Jazakallah Mr. Imran Ali. Nothing to add more except more emphasis on Barkha Dutt’s role in previous debates also about Islam or Muslim.

  58. Dear Brother Ali,

    Good Reply! May Allah reward you.

    You can also check the reply by Brother Umar Shariff (President of D.I.E.T.) in this link

    If you are planning to send a message to NDTV, I request you to please consolidate the opinions and send it.

    Jazak Allahu Khair!


  59. As-salam Alikum w.r.b.,

    I watched this show and felt that Burkha Dutt did not give that much chance to Dr. Zakir Naik. She is really had done her homework and did not give that much time. Also, i noted that when she asked about Bin Laden to Dr. Zakir Naik and he belives in that videos – when he told that NO – she told ‘come on’ Zakir Naik as if he is liying, even when he explained to her that one of American jouranlist was not agreeing with the tapes that were aired on Al Jazira TV – becos the way Taliban tie their turban are not the same as what they are showing on the TV?

    May Allah give peace and show right path to us.

  60. AsSalaam Alaikum.

    Loved the review bro!
    but i did feel that Dr. Zakir Naik should’v chosen to speak like Moulana Madni (but thats just a personal opinion)

    Dont know if any1 noticed… but when the thing about sikhs, their turbans / beards came up, the anchor just literally jumped n cut it saying “its different” in this case.

    All n all one msg did come out clear in the end (which ws the only good thing i felt) is that the association of the word terrorism with islam should NOT happen

  61. Assalam-alaikum (Peace and blessing be unto all of you).

    There are two or three different topics here – one is purely political, second one is a social issue and third is a religious (islamic) point of view regarding ‘terrorism’ and speaking on topics that we do not have absolute proof on (daleel).

    Lets handle the religious aspect first – Islam absolutely forbids killing of non-combatants even in the time of open war. Killing of any person who professes the shahadah is also forbidden. Thus if anyone carried out the attacks on 9/11 (obviosuly someone did, with someone elses backing), WE HAVE TO CONDEMN IT. Second we do not know for a fact who did it. We do not have proof of if it was Osama bin Laden or his group, or it ‘CIA bin America’. Either way as Muslims it is our reponsibility to speak out only as much about which we have absolute proof (not just a belief). If we do not have that or we lack the resources to gather them, we should only talk about the false proof that others have provided AND NOTHING BEYOND THAT.
    I do believe that brother Zakir did over extend himself by appearing to defend bin Laden not that he openly supported him.
    Islam is an open religion which covers all aspects of life. Muslims should participate in open debates on its principles using daleel from Qur’an and hadith, and not shy away from debates. That is one thing Dr. Zakir does a wonderful job in and I do highly appreciate that. Regarding this topic, he has said what he believes and he has a right to do that. He might not be correct, but he has the right.

    Second issue about the Social aspect – it is a shame that we Muslims have to resort to arguing about movies and movie stars and use that in our arguments. Movie stars are nothing but modern day ‘prostitu….’. Since when have they become the guardians of our faith? What was shown in ‘My name is Khan’ is haraam islamically (although it can be justified if the character was shown to be mentally incapable of distinguishing Halaal and Haraam). Either way that is not a barometer to measure Muslims with. Muslims for too long receeded in a shell away from all debates in India and have allowed buffones like Shahrukh, Dilip Kumar, Shabana Azmi and her father Kaifi Azmi, and unscrupulous politicians define what Islam is for us, leading to all this turmoil where even a dacoit like Zardari can claim that he is doing the work of Allah(swt). It is time more of us stand up and take back what Islam really is and do so solely in the light of the Qur’an and hadith.

    This leads to our final issue – Politics. The rise of Taliban or even “Al-Qaeda” was not due to some turmoil in Islam. It was due to weak Muslims fighting among ourselves giving other the chance to others to intefere in our lands. Everyone, including western scholars and religous Muslims agree on that. And this can only be resolved if we as Muslims rise up and take our matters in our own hands and resolve our internal disputes in peace and respect. But one thing is clear – Islam lays down the rules for everything – from politics to war and even revenge. If we see individuals bombing Masjids in the name of Islam on Friday (no matter who is behind it) we should stand up and condemn it. Likewise if a girls school is blown up just because some of the women do not observe the hijab, that has to be condemned as Haraam. Muslims should be responsible for our actions. If there is an overlord making Muslims do it, then it is even more shameful as Allah(swt) has FORBIDDEN any other overlord over the Muslim community.

    Similarly, if a Muslim stands up and tries to clear up the name of Islam, without sounding apologetic, and puts forwards the solution that Islam offers we should applaud him and stand by him. If he over-reaches sometimes (he is human too), we should politely and privately try to pass on the message to him.
    Dr. Zakir, my salaam unto you for doing what you are doing. Keep up the good work and may Allah(swt) bless you for having the courage to speak up.

  62. Dear Brother Imran Ali,

    please read the belwo comments .
    Shaikh Abdullah al-Farsi on Shahrukh Khan’s utterances of Major Kufr

    Bismillah Ar-Rahmaan Ar-Raheem

    Audio Link:
    Recently, a talk show in India did a program on the “Muslim Identity”, on which they invited a panel of famous Muslims to express their opinion. On the panel were some famous Muslim actors and film personalities, including the famous actor Shahrukh Khan; Dr. Zakir Naik was also invited to this panel.

    Usually Muslim film personalities are known to express strange opinions on Islam, and their voice reaches the general film going folk. This time however, with the involvement of Dr. Zakir naik, this event was widely promoted and publicized in Islamic circles, and the statements of Kufr and heresy uttered were heard by many practicing Muslims, who normally would not be subjected to this talk.

    As expected the film personalities got all the talk time, Dr. Zakir wasn’t allowed to clarify much, and the actors said many things that contradict the very foundations of Islam.

    The people who promoted this event, and amongst them are heads of organization that claim to specialize in comparative religion and calling non-Muslims to Islam, did not find it necessary to respond to the false ideas people were exposed to as a result of this program.

    Their reviews were mostly that the media is biased against Muslims and it was a conspiracy that Dr. Zakir Naik was given very little time. Extremely deficient reviews!!!

    In this context we have directed a number of questions to our sheikh, Abdullah al-Farsi (hafidhahullah) specifically about the statements and utterances of the actor Shahrukh Khan who attributes divinity to idols, approves of Idol-worship, approves participation in idol-worshipping ceremonies and is a passionate caller to his ways of disbelief.

    In this mp3 lecture, you will find insha’allah a detailed discussion on the issues, where the sheikh explains that the Kufr (disbelief) of this individual is clear and apparent, and that the ruling of being a Kaafir and outside the millah of Islam applies to him from many angles. And this is such a clear and apparent matter that anyone who sees it and denies this individual’s being a Kaafir, is a Kaafir himself.

    Audio Link:
    My obervation is that Mr.Zakir Naik And Moulana Madni should avoid such tpye talk Show.
    And My Question is we dont that we have much and more bigger Issue then ? That Muslim all over world haveing Problem Ulama such avoide any comments that Particuler issue you are much literate then me now you need to raised voice on that !

    Walekum-Assalaam to all who wished me and assalaam-waleykum for others to join later.
    This is in response to True Indian Muslim had said about the show.
    As my brother has said he dosent have to go to the CNN or BBC to check whether Osama planned the 9/11 attack if he did not see it on the media channels then where did he see it and on which channel he saw that Osama took the ownership or which newspaper he read it.See I am not supporting Osama, if he has done it we condemn but if he has has not then brother just on the basis of suspect 50000 Afghanis were killed. I would like to ask you have you seen LOOSE CHANGE? If you have not then see it. This documentary has not been done by any muslim it has been done by an American and you will see that the Taliban speaking in english though you might not understand Arabic they asked for a proof from the Americans that Osama was behind it and they said if they provide it then they themselve will hand over Osama this telecast was just shown once on the news channel and after that it was never shown Brother you said go to Iraq, Zaire,Congo brother I would like you to just wear the muslim attire and go to Assam the Ulfa is going to butcher you like anything they are specially trained to kill muslims 749 confirmed attacks, guess what Zakir Naik did in his full attire gave a pulic speech, Alhumdolillah this is power of Islam to walk on the way of ALLAH. If you are not doing your duty dont ask others to stop doing Dawah .I appreciate that you are trying to teach others in your own sweet way but what about the rest who would teach them this man runs a channel which is viewed over 70 million people it has outbeaten the God TV.Bro our job is to deliver the message not to convert them so that on the judgement day you can give the shahada that U deliverd his msg to them but atleast try and who knows you might open the doors of heaven for someone and this man has openned the door to heaven for 100’s.
    May Allah give peace and show all of us the right path .

  64. Dear Brother @True Indian Muslim

    I just happened to go through your comment above i respect your opinion brother but i would really want to bring up some points so that you can analyze the who scenario …

    1) Can there be a Flame without a spark?? how about putting the fuel 1st and then the spark or it can vice versa …
    2) Understanding who controls the media and how they work and how they put the message accross … I would give you all links to some documentries by BBC and i request every1 to go through for a better understanding and this documentries are only for all our information which might be an eye opener to many all the matters on Al Qaeda , terrorism , 9/11 etc.. have been exposed long back with evidences .. This documentry movies are just to show you all the other side of the coin and i am sure many of them must have already seen it .. please find the below links and make sure you watch all of them part by part and then post your reviews some may accept the fact and some may not and those who may not accept it need to do some intense research ..
    (this is has 48 parts each part is about 5-6 mins)

    The power of nightmares by BBC World (Watch all the parts)

    (Watch the whole movie)

    Once you go through the videos many of them will change their perception..

    I do agree there are some extremist with an ideology who claim that muslim leader are kafirs or apostates and their war is against israel , america and every ruler who supports them and they believe this to be Jihad this kind of Jihad is not from Islam . People who spread this kind of ideology are known as Khawarij and these people were called the dogs of the hell fire by Prophet Muhammad PBUH.. But no matter what these people do not believe in killing innocent people there is big time political conspiracy which you would understand once you go through the videos.. Islam or Muslims are not to be blamed for it.. If Dr.. Z… defends some1 it doesnt mean he is in favour of their ideology or he supports these acts all he is trying to do is present the other side of the coin or story.. Every scholar can make a mistake as none of us are perfect we all need to accept things when we are given proofs , Extremism in any form is forbidden in Islam but what exactly is extremism , If you say wearing a cap , hijab , having a beard , wearing a white thobe as the arabs , wearing the pants above the ankles etc is extremism i dont think there is anything extreme about it.. Now talking about people who you claim have taken ownership of committing such an like 9/11 firstly how well do you understand the arabic language in the videos you must have seen , do you completely rely on the translation that has been produced dont you think these video can be morphed , I guess there was an hindi movie few years back called mission istanbul you would again have an idea how the western media works and i am sure a lot of things will be cleared once you go through all the above video with an open mind.. no offence but i am always ready to give you proofs and evidence and the rest depends and how you research and change your opinions when things are made apparent to you and people from other religion.. I guess its better i discuss things once you go through the video so we know where we are sailing.. please do not take anything personally..

  65. TO True Indian Muslim

    1) First of all why do you call yourself True Indian Muslim?
    The discussion is nothing to do with India.
    There is no True Indian and True American Muslim…
    But there are only True Muslim and Fake Muslim.

    For identification you can call Indian, American, Pakistan …Muslims.

    2) The claim that 9/11 is inside work is discussed by various experts in the field of Engineering, Aviation, Security ext., are based on Technology, Science and Logics. But the stand what you support is just news and baseless.

    If you know technology you will understand there is no any counter argument based on Science and Technology for the stand that 9/11 is inside work.

    But no problem at all if you have no this knowledge. Just find a friend or known person with good Civil /Mechanical Engineering background. I believe Engineers are normally regional people. They will not lie to you.

  66. Asalamualikum

    The only thing I would like to comment is Dr.Zakir Naik Should have argued about the pattern of the so called dialogue he should have demanded some time only for himself (at the time of invitation by NDTV) as he was the most eligible person to speak on this topic.

  67. The name of the other movie that Dr Zakir Naik mentioned in his show was ” Loose Change”. It is available on youtube and a must watch for all.

  68. Aslam alia kum,dear bro and sir,i have seen dr zakir program on ndtv, my name is khan,it is flim only for deaviate muslim,and manuplate théir belief ok,plz

  69. AsSalamualaikum,

    I think the show was to promote My Name is Khan and it was totally useless and baseless show. They just used the Islamic personalities for their show to promote.

    Dr. Zakir Naik has a media platform and I would suggest that he should speak from his stage on the points where he was not given chance to speak.

    I STRONGLY condemn the idea of such debate which is to spoil the Muslim’s faith and I also denounce sitting and keeping quite in such debates where “Wahdatul Adyan” concept is promoted!

    I want to know what religion is written in the passport’s of Mr. Sharukh Khan’s son in the religion column. If Muslim is written there, then he can say the same in school too…don’t you think? It should not be a big deal!

    May Allah Protect India from all kinds of evils as well as Muslims those who are participating in the country’s growth by the Grace of Allah.

  70. People should clink and read the below link for a better understanding!/note.php?note_id=361113668343&id=666609492&ref=mf

  71. salaam,

    i agree with the earlier reader. The main point to note is that islam is not what you see in the dhargas or madrassas or the tv.

    islam is defined in the koran and through the life of the prophey pbuh. i think we the people shopuld have another show with madani sahib and zkir naik with more details. but islam has 2 dimensions feeling and looking, physical and spiritual.

  72. Hi,

    Soon IRF will put the sequel of this program on youtube and you will get to know the real facts behind these media people.


  73. Just found this on wikipedia..thought you may be interested to know:

    The word shirk is derived from the Arabic root Š-R-K (ش ر ك)

    You know what I mean :)…

  74. I completely agree with Br. M.I. Ali.

    Dr. Zakir Naik always leave the desk with marks, and rightly pointed and higlighted by you.

    May Allah protect us

    Iftikhar Islam

  75. Amazing article. Very crisp. Keep up the good work. You have a good eye, but I don’t think Barkha was being as biased as we might feel, seeing the show. If you’ve seen other episodes of We the People, you would know they have a fundamental time problem – they take in more guests than they can handle. This is why they blabber too much with people who are not qualified to speak, and wind up with a bunch of polarized opinions.

    Nevertheless, she did find Dr Zakir Naik’s bin Laden comment a little too “controversial”, so she skipped it more than she generally does. This in addition to the fact that NDTV must have promised to give SRK and KJ more airtime to talk about MNIK, simply cuz otherwise SRK and KJ would never appear on We the People. The pretext of MNIK discussion was a great incentive used by NDTV to lure the duo into the show.

  76. Why are Muslims so obsessed with celebrity scholars?

  77. i am trying to understand like a big subject & this helps loooooot

  78. The show was not a healthy discussion , since the parsonalities called in were just the statue to fill up the space on stage parhapes barkha could have called shahrukh , karan & soha spacifically to generate the publicity of the show because there are lot of viewers in india dying to watch them on such a show without even understanding what they are saying . What ever they have said that does not have any worth in front of views Dr.naik could have given , had he been given a chance . The show was rather be called as “MY NAME IS KARAN SOHA KHAN” by barkha .

  79. Assalamulikum

    Let’s pray to Allah to give Barkat dutt hidayah understand meaning of Islam.

    She is not qualified for this show, proofed herself and NDTV weakpoint from this show.

    Kindly request to NDTV management send her training center, how to conduct such show. Give engough/equal time to each speaker to address his view point. Otherwise change name
    “National dumb tv show” (NDTV)

    Since she don’t know about her own religion and background. How dare she talk about Islam. She did, what NDTV paid for her.
    She forgot hell the fire.

  80. ishfaq kashmiri

    Nice review bro
    i personaly feel that bro zakir was only invited to raise the TRP of the channel. what can 1 expect from soha ali who gets semi nude on screen to know about islam or from srk who agrees that he is a non practicing mu

  81. I saw the program. My comment for those who say that the program was biased is that they should first understand that the program was not organized by a Muslim or for any Islamic cause. Secondly, the time will not be given you have to snatch it. You must also be different and crisp in you presentation like what Sharukh and karan did. I say the presentation of Sharukh was far better that put him dominant throughout the program. Dr. Zakir got the chance but he stuck in some thing else (the scalp cap issue which was deviation form the topic).

  82. Mahaboob Chowdhary

    Conclusion of this show:
    * Shahrukh and karan were given more time compared to others as if only they represent Islam.
    * The show disrespected such eminent personalities of Muslim world like Dr. Zakir Naik by not allowing him to speak about the topic.
    * Barkha Dutt once again showed her biasness towards wanting Muslims to give up their real Islam and adopt the so called modern Islam. She mercilessly called the scholars of Islam as “Lunatics” and kept on giving opportunity to those who would speak against the real Islam. The whole show looked like a pre-planned setup and not a natural debate.

    We expect better show quality from NDTV and fair anchor-ship from Barkha Dutt!

  83. shaik ismail Mohd Ashfaq

    I watch this TV show Barkha dutta is very unfair with Dr Zakir naik she did not give him much time to express his views therefore i request the anchor Barkha to host a show TV that is fair and benefit for the people of India not just by addressing in a bad manner like she said to Dr zakir naik “come on ” really it hurts me a lot, clearly it is preplanned show , i pray to Allah to give Hidaya to Barkha

  84. very true brother..
    media is real enemy of all Muslims… may Allah swt shower his choicest blessings on each n every Muslim brother n save us from evil actions… AMEEN

  85. Asalam-0-alikum,

    i have question, i live in Winnipeg and i am in confusion of Halal chicken, what is the meaning of Halal chicken? Chicken is a Halal animal we can eat it, but when we go to any cuisine, can we order any chicken item? and in any Muslim country we have frozen food too what is the proof that are Halal food? Please answer this query i am in great confusion please help me out in this matter. waiting for your prompt and positive response.

  86. Dear Amna! Please be specific to the topic
    this does not speak about Halal food..
    You can refer to many sites about whats Is Halal & how you you eat it. Swine is Harm as a whole
    apart from it for other animals (cow/goat/Chicken..) animal that are not slaughtered according to Islam
    still be harm. if Frozen food comes with halal logo you can consider to have it though i m not 100% sure about halal product comes from Brazil

  87. Thank you for ur reply above mentioned reply is good enough to understand and thats exactly what i was asking. Thanx again. JazakAllah khair

  88. Lot of sins are committed by muslims but i would like to comment on film faternity even pakistan or any other .Intentional looking at a opposite gender either way is haram but in films you cross all limits against surah NOOR(24) then sin in ignorance is forgiven if forgiveness is seeked from allah repeated in full knowledge or sinning all the liffe thinking of seking forgiveness is not apperciated by allah surah IMRAN (3)VERSE135 also NISA(4) VERSE 17&18. Then this is playing with the word of allah if i name a dog with some muslim name will he be a muslims .In surah NAHL (16) verse 107 these people are behind the wordly name & fame DUNYA . IF person in film industry says he/she is muslim let him come clean give up all he /she has earned through haraam suorce start a new hard earned income if he prefers hereafter and follow the teachings of islam As per me no one is muslim in film line why no FATWA is issued acting is not a islamic way of life or proffession

  89. This show is a clear example of what happens when you throw in practicing Muslims with people who have misconception of being Muslims. A person who was not born in a Muslim family, accepted Islam and practices Islam is more Muslim than a person born into Muslim family and doesn’t practice it. How is SRK a Muslim when he performs idol worshiping considered to be unforgivable sin in islam. How can kabir khan be a Muslim when he doesn’t perform basic duties of Islam and defines Islam according to his convenience. How is soha ali a Muslim when she dances around half naked with men both on screen and off. How is najeeb a Muslim when he has problem even with how Muslims look. How is this “we the people” meaningful when the “people” such as zakir naik and moulana madani were given no time to speak? I don’t want to speak about the other two because one is clear that he is not Muslim and the other doesn’t know what he is. I always wondered how “Muslims” fight among themselves. Now i know.

  90. Assalamualikum,

    Last night I saw this video on youtube, well brother Ali I completely agree with you on the statement that the lady did not shown any loyalty on her show, the programme was set up to discuss within the real muslims/moderate muslims and the focus point was Mr. Zakir and how pity i shoud say the lady did not gave any time to Mr. Zakir.

    Yes ofcourse she was 100% sure that Mr. Zakir would patch the mouths of the hypocrites present on the programme. Especially the hypocrites Najeeb Jung and Kabir Khan, no need to bring the time wasting names like two actors and one useless director.

    Overall the programme was to encourage moderate muslims in their other sense regular muslims (i dont understand how can even they pretend themselves as muslims).

  91. my respectable brothers and sisters who made all comments earlier,

    life is very short,
    don’t waste time in these worthless discussions,
    correct yourself through following Quran and Sunnah
    don’t make your ideal anyone except Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
    May Allah bless you all

    again….. life is very short so hurry up

    100 years




    1 day


  92. I liked true indian muslim’s comment and also read all comments before that .i agree with all.My personal view no to try to make anyone feel negative or inferior about their religion.

  93. Assalamualaykum 2 all momineen.

    There was no debate at all. It was just a talk show. Yes, Burkha Dutt unveiled her pseudo-secular face on the show. I dont follow any jamaat, but find Zakir Naik doing his bit of Dawah, and I feel The way she said “..Come on … Zakir” on 9/11 as if she lives in some remote village. Alhamdulillah I am more than happy, she got caught in that 2G spectrum case. Allah SWT has shown her true face. She takes money to do dealings and helped Congress party in Ministry berth allocation. She lost respect in the eyes of common man. Media is a great agent, in helping every business run, including any countries’ Govt. May Allah give Hidayah to Burkha.

    May Allah take our lives on Kaamil-Eemaan, aameen

  94. Azhar Majeed Khan


    Good work brother…

    JazakAllah Khair…

  95. All problem’s solution is under holy Quran read and learn. what is wrong and what is right.there is no need to take openion frm Jung or sharukh.if ur bike is not working then u will take it to the mechanic or to the cobler.

  96. first of all, a very warm jazakallah to imran bhai, to give such a clear n awesome review of the show through which, not even Muslims but the non Muslims too are gonna think twice about this very serious topic. actually i my self haven’t seen that episode, came hear bout dat, which made me eager to know more n i m actually thankful to u bhai for giving such a nice review. m totally in favor of yours , as i my self have noticed the discrimination done by the media to the Muslims , as for them v all r terrorists. but as one of our brother have said that, how nicely Dr. naik have proved his devotion to Islam, by being patient even when not given appropriate time , but allah is all knower , creater of all which is on earth , heavens n all end i must say.. whatever the citcumstances were in the show but it itself left the print over the viewers to think again about Islam n go deep to understand what exactly Allah the almighty wants his creatures to do……. dats it…. may Allah bless us alll……:-}

  97. True Indian seems to be a media person and prefers to remain hoodwinked to Barkha’s ill-reputed presentation of the programme. However, there are always munafiqs in the community of Muslims. May Allah Ta’ala give him enlightenment.

  98. According to me Dilip Kumar was much intelligent when he was in the limelight than these new folks like Sharukh Khan, who are nothing in comparison to the Thesepian.

  99. Hello, Mr. Imran! From where you are coming from? Aren’t you bias enough when you want Barkha Dutt to focus more on Dr. Zakir than any one else and speak his words and ideas in analysisng about the show. How do you think Dr. Zakir is a genius (OMG). He is a hate-monger who has no place in a multi-ethinic and multi-religious country like India which tolerates his poisonous venoms like any thing. I am Muslim and I do my duties but that doesn’t mean that you play a zero-sum game with other communities. Aren’t you double standard when you have problem, of course me too, with people of other religion making cartoon and talk bad things about Islam or our Prophet (PBHU) but you have no problem rather you clap when Zakir, with his half-truths and fabricated datas, demonize beliefs of others as if Islam is only the religion existing to if Dr. Zakir is authorize by Allah in Quran to speak ills against other religions…as if his logic are ends and we don’t have our own brains to derive logic from. Why to demonize, insult Hinduism or Christianity and make fun of the beliefs of millions. Does it makes Allah (swt) more happy or his Muslimness will be increased manifold if he indulges in such activities in TVs. What is the truth he is talking about or you? His sloppy arguments based on false data is fed to you people at the cost of hurting other fellow communities and you derived happiness out of it and he derive greatness of his own from him. What is so miracle (genius) about him. Memorizing verses of religious texts (yes I won’t be able to do the same and I don’t want to try also) but I challenge him that he doesn’t have the analytical ability as I have. He doesn’t even know the basic fundamentals of DEBATES or argue with reasoning. He gives irrelevant examples to answer and score brownie points and sometimes compel others to convince his pre-judged view. What kind of comparison he does of religions. Lambasting other religions using so-called “scientific language” through false and sometimes fabricated, out of context, examples and analysis. For example, he says that Islam is the fastest growing religion because Islam is increasingly accepted by others. This is totally wrong and Zakir intentionally lied the fact. The fact is Islam is the fastest because of its massive population explosion particularly in poor countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan, etc. What is the reason to feel proud of such explosion??? It is Christianity which is at NO. 1 in terms of conversion rate in the world but zAKIR deliberately didn’t point out this. Why he lied. He said that he would give his little son a tight slap if he doesn’t obey him!!! Now he shows unnecessary violence to the kid at young age. Ordinary Muslims and his followers would start giving tight slap to their 10 year old kids if she/he start disobeying. I have been never slapped by my parents or anyone and it has been never in my culture though as a child I had disobeyed my parents and their instructions. I am 28 and mashallah I am as successful as him. There is no need to slap or beat..may be to zakir but not to me. but he argued on stage in such a way as if slapping is a compulsory ordain or necessary… hahaha…hows stupid. My whole question why you would attack others if you don’t want others to attack your belief??? Why??? Why double-standard. What is make himself popularized…You know the consequences, it is bad. I will lead and is leading to communal disharmony. Why doesn’t he let every faiths to co-exist in harmony through collaboration. He insults people’s belief and he seeking that he speaks truth. He divides people in the name of peace that also in a country like India. In name of Allah and His service he shows his supremacist ideology openly over others, ATTACK their beliefs and when he receives threats from religious people of his category , he seeks protection from Police…what A SHAME!!! And you call him a peace lover and Muslim leader. My foot. Why he asked to show the divinity of Ganesh to Hindus. If Hindus ask him back the same question to show Allah in front of them as proof. Can he do that??? Just as we unflichingly believe that Allah exist and He is the greatest of all and his Prophet (PBUH), they also believe in Ganesh. What is the matter? Yours or his or mine non-acceptance will not make any change to their belief and vice-versa. So why you keep on encouraging such hate-mongers? He is an ordinary man, a confident talker and preacher among thousands..he is nothing else. Yes, I also believe that Islam is personal matter. You cannot make it political at least India, there is limit to it. APJ Kalam is a genius and I admire him but never a hate-monger and supremacist like Zakir.

  100. WOW just what I was looking for. Came here by searching for zakir naik ndtv

  101. Apt analysis. Moreover, we are indebted to Shah rukh & Karan jaohar for their effort in recognizing the fact of “stereotyping muslims” & try at their level to fight against it! I genuinely pray for their guidane 🙂

  102. Mr Fareez I think your knowledge about Islam is too limited when U say Dr. Zakir Naik is authorized by Allah or not . Let me remind U that its a duty of all Muslims to guide others to the right path . Dr says right things in the way the are written in Qur’an . I mean he doesn’t carries a gun forcing people to follow Islam . Even he emphasized on the show that don’t follow me.. if u have any doubt follow the scriptures .

  103. Well done Ali Fazal, that’s what i was trying to inject in his brain.

  104. @Ali Fazal:
    Zakir Naik says that it is okay to kill apostates I/.e. those from Muslim families who start practicing some other religion or become atheist. Well thousands of Hindus are being converted in India also. IF some Hindu preacher says, it is okay to kill all those people would it be acceptable to you? Or you think that it is okay for him to show other religions down by supporting conversion to Islam but demanding death to apostates?
    The law of the land in India is the Indian constitution and not Quran. If he is asking for apostates to be killed, that is hate speech because freedom of worship is guaranteed by the constitution.
