Dr Zakir Naik

Dr Zakir Naik, a renowned Indian Islamic scholar, was born in the city of Mumbai on 18th of October, 1965. He is famous for his vast knowledge on Comparative Religion. Dr. Zakir Naik not only founded the famous IRF (Islamic Research Foundation) but also started Peace TV - a TV channel based on Comparative Religion. He is one of the most influential Islamic ideologues around the world. What makes Dr. Zakir Naik more influential and popular is his ability to deliver Islamic lectures in colloquial English where most scholars prefer Urdu or Arabic. Although an Islamic intellectual, he wears a suit and a tie to his lectures instead of wearing the traditional Islamic garb. He has a modern and rather easy approach about religion which has won him many followers from all across the globe. Dr. Zakir Naik has given very informative lectures on the supremacy of Islam, the status of women in Islam, homosexuality, Islamic terrorism and Jihad, secularism and so on but his most famous lectures include the ones given on Islam & Modern Science and Islam & Christianity. Where his modern approach to Islamic teachings has won him a great many followers, it has lead to immense criticism too. Many conventional and more conservative Islamic scholars have “accused” Dr. Zakir Naik of making the religion of Islam way too easy, which is actually a compliment. More people within the Islamic community criticise him than from any other community. He rejects sectarianism in Islam but many people blame him of propagating Wahhabism. Currently, his lectures are banned in Bangladesh, Canada, India and the United Kingdom under the false accusations of spreading extremism.
