Bangladesh seeks details on Zakir Naik's operations

New Delhi: Bangladesh has sought from India details about Zakir Naik's operations even as it said several prominent ulemas wanted action against the Islamic televangelist much before deadly the Gulshan attack last month.

Bangladeshi Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu, who is here on a six-day visit, said his country has cracked down on Naik's Peace TV by banning its broadcast and indicated that it is waiting for India's action against the controversial preacher.

Inu said his country doesn't have any evidence of links between home grown terrorists in Bangladesh with extremists outfits in India but at the same time slammed Pakistan for "harbouring terrorism".

He said Bangladesh has witnessed over 43 attacks on thinkers, bloggers and people from Sufi faith and it has been found that in almost 90 per cent cases, the attackers had links with banned Jamaat-e-Islami which he alleged was a "corroborator" with Pakistani forces during the 1971 Liberation war.
