SRINAGAR: While expressing his strong reaction over the negative propaganda of Indian biased media against the great intellectual and prominent Islamic Scholar Dr. Zakir Naik and the decision of the Indian government to probe his Islamic lectures, Chairman Hurriyat (G) Syed Ali Geelani said that the Dr. Zakir Naik and his TV channel (Peace TV) are propagating and preaching true message of Islam and he has no direct or indirect relation with the terrorist incidents which are taking place in Bangladesh or any other place of the world.
He said that the RSS and its allied parties are actually frustrated with the popularity of the true Islamic message and they are now finding reasons and excuses to silence the prominent and most accepted voice of Dr. Zakir Naik and the Peace TV.
In a statement issued to KNS, Syed Ali Geelani said that the Sangh Parivar has started a direct war against the Islam and for this purpose they with the help of state power want to silence and eliminate every such voice, person or institution who is representing the Islam and the Muslims. Peace TV has although grown to the international levels and its viewers list has crossed the 100 million mark. It is the most watched private TV channel in the world and it is not only watched by the Muslims but the non-Muslim brothers too like to gain vital information from this channel. This TV channel is doing a commendable job in clearing the misconceptions regarding the Islam all over the world. It is preaching and propagating the true message of Islam in the world and many non-Muslim brothers after observing the unmatched and unchallenged teachings of Islam on this channel have and are willfully entering the fold of Islam. This trend has disturbed the fanatic people of RSS and the Sangh Parivar and they are doing all this in frustration.
Hurriyat (G) chairman said that the Indian fanatic and communal people are plotting to silence the Dr. Zakir Naik and its TV channel since very long time but till now they didnt succeeded in that.
Syed Ali Geelani also criticized the Indian media for giving too much hype to this baseless issue and said that in the name of Peace TV, they are actually spreading venom against the Islam and are running a media trial against the Dr. Zakir Naik and his TV channel over a baseless issue. They sitting in the news rooms are leveling allegations as an investigation agency and at the same time are issuing verdicts as the judiciary.
Syed Ali Geelani however cautioned that any attempt to harm the Peace TV or the Dr. Zakir Naik will have a strong reaction in the Jammu & Kashmir and it will take a serious turn which will be uncontrollable for the policy makers of New Delhi. The Kashmiri pro-freedom leader also addressed the Indian Muslims that it is a testing time for them and any carelessness will prove fatal for the community in India and the communal people will eliminate their identity in the region.
