Despite setback on Zakir Naik, India continues to remain engaged with Malaysia

New Delhi, July 10 (UNI) Notwithstanding setback to India's diplomatic efforts on extradition request
for radical Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, the government of India will continue 'engagements' with Malaysia.
According to sources, the government is still hopeful about getting positive results on deportation of Zakir Naik, who is facing probe by National Investigation Agency (NIA) and the Enforcement Directorate.
"There were some developments .....Malayasian Prime Minister (Mahathir Mohammed) made some remarks...But there are ways to talk also," a source said.
According to sources, Mr Naik's sermons on his channel, Peace TV, were cited as a major catalyst for deadly terror attack in July 2016 in Dhaka that left 22 people dead.
On the night of 1 July 2016, five militants had stormed into the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka after the assailants entered the bakery with crude bombs, pistols and took number of foreigners and locals as hostages.
Indian government had informed Malaysian authorities that Naik is spreading 'disharmony' through Peace TV and his NGO Islamic Research Foundation (IRF).
The Enforcement Directorate is probing allegations of money laundering against the NGO; the MEA
too has revoked Zakir Naik's passport with effect from July 17, 2017.
On reports in a section of media that a Pakistani-origin journalist based in Canada has claimed that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, has prepared his controversial report in Jammu and Kashmir, government sources said the MEA has already rejected the report.
Zafar Bangash, an Islamic movement journalist based in Toronto and an Imam at the Islamic Society of York Region's Mosque, has claimed that he had email interactions with Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein.
On June 14, the UN released a report on Kashmir accusing security forces of gross human rights violations on both sides of the border.
New Delhi has called the report "fallacious, tendentious and motivated".
"It is a selective compilation of largely unverified information. It is overtly prejudiced and seeks to build a false narrative. The report violates India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The entire state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India. Pakistan is in illegal and forcible occupation of a part of the Indian state through aggression," an MEA official spokesperson has said.
