Zakir Naik: Why India wants to arrest the preacher?

He has 16 million followers on Facebook, 150,000 on Twitter and has given more than 4,000 lectures on Islam across the world. But Zakir Abdul Karim Naik, the popular televangelist and Islamic preacher, is now wanted by the Indian authorities. Problems arose for the preacher last summer, after Bangladeshi authorities said that one of the gunmen responsible for an attack on a cafe in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, which left 22 people dead, had been inspired by him. Bangladesh responded by banning Peace TV, an Islamic channel broadcast from Dubai which Naik founded in 2006 and which claims to reach 100 million people worldwide. The 51-year-old denied supporting violence, releasing a video statement in which he said: "Killing innocent beings is the second major sin in Islam."

Trump summons Muslim nations to confront ‘Islamic terror of all kinds’

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — President Trump delivered a forceful address here Sunday summoning the Muslim world to confront “the crisis of Islamic extremism” as he seeks to create new partnerships to unite against global terrorism. Speaking from Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam and home to several of the religion’s holiest sites, Trump implored the leaders of dozens of Muslim nations to take their own destinies in hand and, together with the United States, stop the killing of innocent people in the name of religion. “This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different civilizations,” Trump said. “This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life and decent people, all in the name of religion — people that want to protect life and want to protect their religion. This is a battle between good and evil.” Trump implicitly rejected the aspirational goals and call for democracy and human rights of former president Barack Obama, who also…

Five steps toward achieving Middle East peace

Donald Trump’s decision to visit Saudi Arabia during his first overseas trip as president creates the perfect opportunity for his administration to take positive steps toward addressing five key needs in the region.

With these five, he can do a lot to reverse the unconstructive actions taken over the past eight years by the previous administration and make a start negotiating genuine peace and security for the region.

These policy ideas represent something of a consensus by Middle East experts, especially in Washington. Some of the steps are diplomatic, but others require military action by the United States. Americans have an understandable reluctance to re-engage militarily in the Arab world, but they have to understand that serious actions are required to prevent conflicts in the region from getting worse.

1) Correct the mistakes of the Obama administration: The previous presidency turned a blind eye to Iran’s regional menace, including Tehran’s support for terrorism and its escalatio…
