British Muslims support ban on radical Islamic cleric

The British Muslims have supported the UK Government’s decision to ban radical Islamic preacher Zakir Naik from entering the country and said his preaching was contrary to the concepts of Islam which is a religion of peace and harmony. In this regard, a delegation consisting of leaders from various Islamic sects delivered a petition at the Downing Street voicing their concerns at Naik’s negative influence on followers particularly Muslim youth and the inaccurate knowledge those interested in learning more about the faith were receiving from his speeches.
