Zakir Naik Quotes from the Quran, He Quotes from the Vedas, He Quotes from the Upanishads, from the Puranas, He Quotes from the Bible, Torah, Guru Granth Sahib etc etc. ie He Quotes from almost all Religious scriptures.
His debates include ‘Similarities between Islam and Hinduism’, ‘between Islam and Bible’ and so on –He has a fantastic memory and can remember and quote the chapter and verse from any religious book — His lectures are very educative and very revealing.— I do not think he has said anything against the USA and Britain which is not already there in the Print and Electronic media –I think there is a deeper malaise here — Upper caste Fanatic Sangh Parivar do not want Lower Caste Hindus or Muslims to read Hindu Scriptures or Quote from them. They think they only have the sole right — Targeting Zakir Naik sends a right signal that anybody other than Brahmins quoting from the Hindu scriptures will get his thumb cut like Eklavya — like In Surah Kafiroon ” To all those who do not follow Allah — I worship not that which ye worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship. Nor will I worship those whom you have worshipped; Nor will ye worship that which I worship. To you be your Way(Religion), and to me mine.” —-
Here Allah does not want any Muslim to criticise any other Religion or belittle it in any way, and if Dr Zakir Naik has done that knowingly or unknowingly then surely he has to Answer Allah because Allah is the best Judge —- Our Prophet has once said ” I Get Cool Breeze from HIND ” — Which shows how highly he regarded the People of Hindustan and it’s Culture and Wisdom —
