Hello, I am writing here because I want to opine about zakir naik and how he is distancing Muslims from others and vice versa. I grew up in a multicultural environment and grew up having best friends as Muslims Hindus both. I knew well that there are a lot of differences in our religions but we believed, live and let live. I don’t understand why zakir naik feels that peace can exist between Hindus and Muslims only if Hindus convert. Though he never mentions this, it’s very clear when u hear his lectures.
But what surprises and shocks me is his support for child marriages, disregard for the need of any contraception except lactational amenorrhea, disregard for the need of abortions if it’s an abnormal child like in down’s syndrome.
I am sure he has never learnt medicine the way it had to be learnt. Or else shouldn’t he know that even if a girl attains puberty at 9, her body is neither physically nor mentally ready for marriages and pregnancies. I am deeply pained to know that such a person is being followed, such a person is running a school in Mumbai. What will happen in future? Can we blame our future generation if their guide is like this? -- Ananya Menon
