TV Programme Host: Are Non-Muslims allowed to preach their religion and to build their places of worship in an Islamic State? If yes, then why building of Churches are not allowed in Saudi Arabia whereas Muslims are building their Mosques in London and Paris?
Dr. Zakir Naik’s Answer: In some Islamic Countries – for example Saudi Arabia propagation of other religions is prohibited. Even construction of any place of worship is also prohibited. So many Non-Muslims ask that when we allow Muslims to preach and build their Mosques in our countries then why we are not allowed to do so in these Muslim countries? In my reply, I ask the Non-Muslims that suppose you are a principal of a school and you intend to select a math teacher.
Three candidates come and you ask them what will be the total of 2+2? The first replies that 2+2=3 and the second one answers that 2+2=4. And the third one answers that 2+2=6. Now I ask these non-Muslims that will they allow the candidates to teach in their school who says that 2+2=3 or that 2+2=6? They say that no. I ask why? They say because he does not have the correct knowledge of mathematics.
