Zakat-funded hate speechJuly 18, 2010
Naik: I can’t comment on Osama Bin Laden’s activities because “I don’t know him personally.”
How does Islamic freak Zakir Naik (the guy in the hat deceptively answering a question in the video above) fund a TV channel without commercials? Zakat, of course! But, but, isn’t zakat alms for the poor? Nope, it’s money to spread Islam. From the Weekly Blitz on July 7:
Then he [Naik] was offered US$ 28 million from various Afro-Arab sources for establishing an ‘Islamic’ television channel. This was the beginning for Zakir to become a well known name in the world, by establishing ‘Peace TV’, a 24-hour television channel promoting hate speech, Jihad and encouraging conversion of non-Muslims to Islam. According to information, Dr. Zakir Naik was able to get more than 15,000 people only in India converted into Islam just during 2007-2009. It is largely alleged that, this man was targeting mostly poor classes in the society and were getting them converted with cash incentives.
Though Peace TV continues its broadcast without any advertisement, it is learnt that, millions of dollars are contributed by Muslims in the world for continuing this Islamist channel. Most of such ‘donations’ are from Islamic Zakaat fund of the Muslims as well several Arab Sheikhs. He continued to be invited in various Muslim countries and accorded special press coverage thus giving him another platform of spreading message of hatred against other religions. So far, he has delivered more than a thousand public talks in the world.
Dr. Dr. [sic] Naik recommends the death penalty for homosexuals and for apostasy from the faith, which he likens to wartime treason. He calls for India to be ruled by the medieval tenets of Sharia law. He supports a ban on the construction of non-Muslim places of worship in Muslim lands and the Taliban’s bombing of the Bamiyan Buddhas. He says revealing clothes make Western women “more susceptible to rape.”
