Can't be blamed if my sermons inspire jihadists: Zakir Naik

New Delhi: Televangelist Zakir Naik, who is accused of spreading hatred through his Peace TV, has accused the Indian media of doing a "devilish thing" to him by showing "doctored clips" of his sermons.

"There is not a single lecture of mine, if not taken out of context, will ever spread hatred.

"All my speeches are on communal harmony. It being communal harmony between various section of Muslims or it being various religions of humanity - Muslims and Hindus, Muslims and Christians.

"But what the media has done.. they have done a devilish thing. They have picked up my sentences out of context," he said in an interview with India Today in Jeddah.

“They have quoted half my sentences and some of the clips shown are doctored,” he added.
