    Dr Zakir Naik’s only mistake is that being convinced of the speeches of him Indians had started to embrace Islam which is by no means digestible by Modi personally who is already harsh for Muslims and wishes to eliminate Zakir by labeling false charge. When he took shelter in Malaysia, a strong Hindu lobby of India under Mr Ramasamay found good opportunity to target Zakir Naik. And at last they charged Zakir Naik for a racial remarks which is out of context.
