Zakir Naik granted Saudi citizenship by King Salman

Indian Islamic preacher Dr Zakir Naik who is now wanted by Indian authorities for alleged terrorist offences has reportedly been granted citizenship by Saudi Arabia, according to The Middle East Monitor.

The portal said the Mumbai passport office did not appear to have anticipated Saudi Arabia granting citizenship to him, moved to revoke his passport while a special court sent out an arrest warrant for him.

Once an RCM is issued against Naik, he will be declared an worldwide fugitive and can be arrested by any agency around the world.

It is unknown if Dr Zakir, who was recently revealed to have been awarded permanent residency by the Malaysian government five years ago, had applied or accepted the Saudi citizenship.

It is also to be noted that Naik was issued another non-bailable warrant under a money laundering case by the Enforcement Directorate as well.

The 51-years-old Islamic cleric Mr Naik came under Indian government's radar after the Bangladeshi government accused him of making speeches that could have incited some of the terrorists who attacked a Dhaka cafe in July, killing 20 people although Zakir refuted any such claims.

Naik was in Saudi Arabia at the time and has not returned to India to evade arrest.

The Centre had declared Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), an NGO based at Dongri in south Mumbai, an unlawful organisation under the Unlawful Activities [Prevention] Act (UAPA). Controversial Indian Muslim evangelist Dr Zakir Naik has been granted Saudi Arabian citizenship, according to a press monitoring organisation in the Middle East.
