Qatar told India no invitation was sent to Zakir Naik for FIFA World Cup, says MEA | India News,The Indian Express

The MEA spokesperson said the issue of Zakir Naik being a "wanted" criminal in India has been raised with Qatar.

Naik, a controversial Islamic preacher and Indian fugitive, was purportedly invited by Qatar to attend the the FIFA World Cup.

Bagchi added that the issue of Zakir Naik being a “wanted” criminal in India has been raised with Qatar.

In November 2016, India’s counter-terrorism agency filed an official complaint against Naik, accusing him of promoting religious hatred and unlawful activity. The following year, Naik sought asylum and moved to Malaysia. He was granted permanent residency there. However, Naik is currently among the 16 banned Islamic scholars in Malaysia.

In March this year, the Home Ministry declared Naik-founded Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) an unlawful association and banned it for five years. India has also sent a request to Malaysia for his extradition.
