Mumbai: According to latest info coming up, Islamic preacher Zakir Naik's video conference via Skype for Mumbai media on Thursday has been called off.
Naik's video conference was scheduled to take place via Skype at the Mehfil Hall, in Agripada, south Mumbai, from a venue abroad where he is currently on a lecture tour.
Earlier today, the Islamic Research Foundation had rued that he was denied any venue to address the media in Mumbai. But, later in the day, a report surfaced that Naik, who was allegedly declined permission by several hotels in the city, had finally managed to secure a place in Mumbai for media interaction.
However, according to ANI report, Naik's Thursday video conference has been cancelled yet again.
Naik, currently believed to be in Saudi Arabia, had earlier said that he’ll return to Mumbai on Monday and will meet the press in person. This was cancelled later. However, Naik said he’ll hold a Skype presser on Thursday.
Currently under the scanner for his controversial speeches and sermons, Naik is facing allegations of inspiring terrorists involved in the Dhaka attacks and some members of Islamic State’s Hyderabad module.
