20 May 2017,Saturday, 11:18



Islamic preacher Dr Zakir Naik has been granted citizenship by Saudi Arabia, according to media reports.

The Middle East Monitor reported that King Salman had intervened to grant Naik Saudi citizenship.

51-year-old Naik, who founded the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), an NGO based at Dongri in south Mumbai of India, was believed to be staying in Saudi Arabia after his activities came under scanner following accusations that he had inspired some of the terrorists who attacked a cafe in Dhaka last year.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) in India had filed an FIR against Naik and his associates in November.

Naik has rejected all allegations of involvement in terror-related activities and opposed the ban on the IRF.
