Mr Naik's speeches are banned in the UK, Canada and Malaysia.
This post by The Daily Star (Bangladesh's most widely circulated English newspaper) says he is not banned in Malaysia:
The Daily Star stands corrected on its report that he was banned in Malaysia.
He also talked about his own ban in different countries.
Naik in his speech said that three years ago he received one of the most prestigious awards in Malaysia. He added that he was in Malaysia hardly three months back and met several ministers there.
It further says:
However, about his case in the UK, Naik himself said: “The only country that I am officially aware of ban, once from entering, was UK. I don't have any proof that any country has banned me officially.”
About the Canada issue, according to the top Canadian newspaper Toronto Star, Zakir Naik in June 2010 was phoned by a Canadian embassy official in New Delhi to say that he would be refused entry if he decided to come. Naik was set to attend a conference in Canada at that time.
The report adds that “At the same time, nothing was put in writing”.
The Daily Star's reporting was a mere presentation of facts and we regret any misunderstanding between Dr Zakir Naik and this newspaper.
Are Dr. Zakir Naik's speeches banned in the UK, Canada, and Malaysia?
