Reportedly, preacher Zakir Naik has engaged a lawyer in Malaysia as India nears completion of its legal process for his extradition from Malaysia.

  • India’s legal process for approaching Malaysia for extradition almost done
  • Preacher charged with indulging in unlawful activities and promoting religious hatred
  • DPM has said will comply with extradition request

Lawyer Shaharudin Ali said he had informed the inspector-general of police and the attorney-general to refer to him in the event an extradition request is made, FMT reported.

According to the Hindustan Times, India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) has charged Zakir and his Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) with indulging in unlawful activities and promoting religious hatred.

Reportedly, the Indian government has imposed a five-year ban on the IRF under the country’s anti-terror laws and has declared Zakir an absconder.

The Indian daily also said that India’s legal process for approaching Malaysia for the extradition of Zakir Naik is “nearing completion” and soon an official request will be sent, according to the country’s external affairs ministry.

On Nov 8, Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi told the Dewan Rakyat that if India requests that the controversial preacher be extradited via Mutual Legal Assistance, Putrajaya will comply.

NIA had previously requested Interpol to issue a “red notice” for the arrest of the 52-year-old preacher, who is said to be residing in Putrajaya.
