This is with reference to an exclusion order issued to Dr Zakir Naik by the British Home Office, UK Border Agency, dated 16th June 2010.
Dr Zakir Naik, the illustrious and eminent speaker from Mumbai, India, is respected and revered throughout the world for his enlightening and convincing efforts promoting similarities between major faiths based on converging values for a common platform of Peace, using the binding commonalities that exist between the religious scriptures including the Bible, Vedas, Torah and Glorious Qur’an.
Following on from recent malicious and specious reports in the British media about the work of Dr Zakir Naik, we are disappointed to learn the British Government has decided to exclude him from visiting the United Kingdom to conduct a Peace Conference Tour between 25th-27th June 2010.
It is deeply regrettable the British Government has bowed to pressure from sectarian and Islamophobic pressure groups by preventing the entry of Dr Zakir Naik, who has been visiting and delivering talks in the United Kingdom for the past 15 years.
In the wake of these inaccurate press reports, Dr Zakir Naik issued a press release in the United Kingdom dated 11th June 2010 which is attached herewith.
The exclusion order issued by the Secretary of Home Department UK, appears to rely mainly on the following four extracts from various talks by Dr Zakir Naik which they found objectionable;
Note: You will find more options there on the top right corner, inshaAllaah.

Dr Bilal Philips Banned from the UK
(by Dr. Bilal Philips)
Well, the inevitable finally happened. At least the British Home Secretary called Dr Naik in Mumbai prior to his trip and told him not to come. I arrived to London this Saturday morning, 19 June, at 8am only to denied entry and put back on a plane at 11am back to Doha!!! So, I was unable to attend the Qur’aan conference on the 20th as planned!!! Sorry to all who attended the conference expecting to hear from me or see me. Even the conference was harassed by the British National Party and had to change their venue at the last moment. And Allah is the best Protector and disposer of our affairs.

Suppose that you were told tonight that tomorrow is your last day on this Earth, what would you do?
Do you think that you won’t change your regular routine to one which is more Islamic, in other words, is your routine Islamic enough?
Do you think you will be content with what you had been able to do in this life and that you would not ask for some more time?
Death is something that all of us know that we will experience as Allah (swt) mentions in the Quran in Surah Al-e-Imran, Chapter 3, Verse 185:

It has been narrated that once Umar ibn al-Khattab (RA) stood up and asked his people, “What would you do if you see that I have made a wrong decision (i.e. against the Quran and Sunnah)?” One of them stood up and said, “We would use our swords to force you back onto the right path (i.e. the Quran and Sunnah).” Umar ibn al-Khattab (RA) replied by saying, “I am happy to have such people who would correct me and bring me back to what is right in case I make some mistake.”
I hope that I can expect the same from my readers that they would correct me if I am wrong even if it means being rude to me or going against any of my other wishes.
