Dr Zakir Abdul Karim Naik is a televangelist in India who operates a satellite TV station called “PeaceTV” out of Mumbai, India spreading Wahabi propaganda. Few of Naik’s audience around the world realize how scorned he is by educated Muslim scholars and non-Muslim scholars alike for his misinformation, misrepresentations, and unscriptural doctrines. Mufti of Deoband (India’s foremost Islamic centre of theological learning) have issued formal fatwas against Zakir Naik calling him “a preacher of Ghair Muqallidin” and saying “one should not rely on his speeches,”1 “he is not reliable and Muslims should avoid listening to him.”2
