Islamic preacher Zakir Naik back in headlines

New Delhi: Zakir Naik back in headlines after Interpol took up India‚Äôs request to issue “Red Corner Notices” against the Islamic preacher.

According to the report published, Red Corner Notices are requests to 194 member states to arrest fugitives.

In December 2017, Interpol had canceled the notice against Zakir Naik. He had also approached the Interpol and alleged that he is being targeted.

In 2018, NIA had rejected the claims made by Zakir Naik. A request for Red Corner Notices was also sent to the Interpol in the month of January.
