Yesterday, the Indian foreign ministry confirmed that they have made a formal request to Malaysia for the extradition of Zakir Naik.
Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar has stated:
“At this stage, our request is under the active consideration of the Malaysian side. Our High Commissioner in Kuala Lumpur is in touch with Malaysian authorities.”
Mr Naik is wanted by Indian authorities over allegations of money laundering and spreading extremism including giving speeches which were cited as a reason for a terrorist attack in Dhaka, Bangladesh, which killed 22 people. India’s National Investigation Agency is also investigating Naik’s Islamic Research Foundation, over allegations of money laundering.
