According to PTI report, “In a gazette notification, the Home Ministry said that on the basis of records available and reports received from intelligence agencies, it found that the IRF Education Trust has violated various provisions of the Foreign Contribution Regulations Act (FCRA) 2010.”

“Now, therefore, the central government in exercise of powers conferred by sub-section (3) of section 11 of the FCRA 2010, hereby specifies that the IRF Education Trust shall obtain prior permission of the central government on each occasion before accepting any foreign contribution in accordance with the provisions of section 12 of the Act and rules made thereunder,” the notification said.

Zakir Naik came under the vigilance of the security agencies after it was stated that his preachings are allegedly inspiring youth to join terrorist organisations, and some of them were involved in Dhaka Terror attack, in this year, July.

The move is taken after different investigations found out that Naik is “involved” in using the funds of his NGOs for allegedly inspiring youths into terror activities.

The cancellation of the FCRA registration of Islamic Research Foundation is also on the process of cancellation, and a final show cause notice has already been issued to the organisation.

According to PTI report, “The IRF’s registration under the FCRA was renewed in September inadvertently despite multiple probes against Naik, leading to suspension of a Joint Secretary and four other officials in the Home Ministry.”

Government is waiting for the Union Cabinet’s nod to declare IRF as an unlawful association under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.

“According to a draft note, which is based on the inputs from Maharashtra Police, Naik, who heads the IRF and IRF Educational Trust, has allegedly made many provocative speeches and engaged in terror propaganda. “

Sources have claimed, “Naik also transferred IRF’s foreign funds to Peace TV for making objectionable programmes. Most of the programmes, which were made in India, contained alleged hate speeches of Naik, who had reportedly urged all Muslims to be terrorists through Peace TV.”

Swastika, one of the sacred symbols used by many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.
