London, June 28 (ANI): The Charity Commission on Britain is investigating the role of the Islamic Dawah Centre International, linked to a banned Indian Islamic televangelist Zakir Naik, over the books it sells.

Britain had banned Naik, on June 18, who once claimed “every Muslim should be a terrorist,” from entering the country, citing his “unacceptable behaviour”.

According to the, British Home Secretary Theresa May issued an order saying that Naik would not be allowed to enter the country under laws that can exclude anyone who writes or publishes material that can “foment, justify or glorify terrorist violence”.

However, Dr Zakir Naik, who runs the Islamic Research Foundation and Peace TV, said he would approach the British high court against the ban imposed on him by Britain.

A Commission spokesman, Mohammed Zameer, said that it was trying to establish if Islamic Dawah Centre International had a regulatory role to play.

The organisation, however, insisted that the books it sold had been vetted and cleared.

“All of our books are on the website. There is nothing that is objectionable,” its spokesman Mohammed Zameer said. (ANI)
