After allegedly inspiring Dhaka attackers, Zakir Naik slapped with ban by Bangladesh govt
Industry Minister Aamir Hossain Amu, who chaired the meeting in which Naik's channel was banned, said that the decision to ban the Mumbai-based preacher's 'Peace TV Bangla' was taken by the Cabinet Committee on Law and Order, during a special meeting.
The meeting was attended by senior ministers and top security officials.
During the meeting, officials also decided to monitor the sermons given during Friday prayers to check whether any provocative lectures were being delivered, Amu told reporters.
The government also appealed to Imams in the country to deliver lectures denouncing terrorism and extremism, in accordance with true Islamic ideology, the minister said.
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said yesterday that Bangladesh's intelligence agencies were investigating the Islamic preacher Naik.
